Bountiful Basket!

Bountiful Basket is fan-flippin-tastic.  It's like a co-op order that you place with people in your community for a bunch of local, seasonal fruit and veggies.  All of this was $15!  I ordered this one a few weeks ago. Yesterday we got an order, and it was bananas, plums, apples, pears, grapes, avocados, broccoli, carrots, cauliflower, tomatoes, lettuce, and cucumbers-- in even greater quantities than the above things.  You can also order organic, bread, "theme" baskets (Italian, Mexican, etc), pumpkins/gourds, tortillas... Kind of the bomb.  Anyway, if you live in the states, they do it all over the country.  Especially with winter coming it can really save you money on produce: the best tasting produce I've ever had.
I'm going to use the cauliflower to make a base for a healthy chowder or cream soup.  Stay tuned! If it's a success, I'll post the recipe ;)


  1. Jealous! Great find!

  2. They do that here in Student housing too. But I always miss the order deadline, so we haven't ever gotten one!
