Bountiful Basket #5

Here’s what we got in today’s Bountiful Basket for $15:

4 peaches

5 plums

6 bananas

1 cantaloupe

1 bunch green grapes

1 bag green beans

3 tomatoes (Bob and I got 2 extra tomatoes for going and volunteering this morning)

1 eggplant

1 head green cabbage

2 bunches green leaf lettuce (also got an extra head of lettuce for volunteering)

5 pounds potatoes

We also added on the Mexican pack (for an additional $7) which looked like this:

and contained:

2 onions

1 bunch garlic

6 limes

2 avacadoes

1 bunch cilantro

1 bunch green onions

10 tomatillos

7 jalapenos

3 Anaheim peppers

3 Pasilla peppers

2 Mexican squash (look like zucchinis)

I’ve already made Chinese Chicken Salad with the cabbage and green onions and Bob just printed off a recipe for “Tomatillo Salasa Verde” which will use the tomatillos, onion, garlic, cilantro and peppers (the recipe calls for serrano but we’ll sub in 1 of the other kinds that we got).  Curious about Bountiful Baskets?  Go to http://www.bountifulbaskets.org and check it out!
