Every day I get a Bountiful Basket is a happy day in my book. Although temps were a little on the high side today, it was still a gorgeous distribution day. The baskets were overflowing once again – don’t you love the summer growing season? I think I was most excited to receive peaches as the entire family loves them.
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.

CONVENTIONAL BASKET RECIPES: The following items were in my basket this week: green peppers, blueberries, green cabbage, celery, red grapes, baby romaine lettuce, mango, honeydew melon, green onion, peaches, plums and red potatoes.
Blueberry Lemonade – this looks soooo refreshing!
Peach & Blueberry Greek Yogurt Cake – enjoy cake with a little less guilt.
Crockpot Corned Beef & Cabbage – also uses potatoes. No need to turn on the oven for this dinner – yea!
Black Pepper Chicken – uses celery. Panda Express knockoff. I will mostly like use thin spaghetti if I can’t find the Yakisoba noodles in my small town grocery.
Frozen Grapes – rinse/clean grapes, then fully dry. Place clean, dry grapes in a single layer on a cookie sheet and place in the freezer for 1-2 hours. Store in a ziplock-type freezer bag. Use as ice cubes in your favorite drinks, in smoothies or eat as a snack (I like to let them thaw a little bit before eating).
Lettuce with Buffala Mozzarella, Cucumbers and Lemon Yogurt Dressing – this is on my “to try” list.
