Recipes and tips for the 2-27-16 Bountiful Baskets Distribution.
Our crazy high school basketball schedule has prevented me from participating in Bountiful Baskets the past 2 months. To say I’ve missed getting baskets would be an understatement. The planets aligned for me this week and I was (finally!) able to get a basket yesterday. And an Organic basket. And a flat of strawberries. And a case of apples. And I can’t forget the pizza rounds and wraps. Yes, I decided to go big, and I don’t regret it one bit. I love having a frig filled with fresh produce.
You’ve got your Bountiful Basket home, cleaned all your goodies and now comes the fun part – deciding what to make with all the awesome produce. If you didn’t get a basket, you can still use these recipes with produce you purchased at the farmer’s market or grocery store – it’s all in season now, readily available and prices out very well.
