This is what was in my Bountiful Basket this week. I usually try and pick out my favorite basket item, but this week that was too hard! I love cucumbers and carrots, and those little pepper make a great snack, I think those gorgeous artichokes might slightly edge out the others by just a bit. All I know is that we will be eating good at my house this week.
How will I use these items in my meal plan for this week?
Artichokes: will be steamed and served with a garlic butter sauce as a side dish
Carrots, Cucumbers, Lettuce, and some of the Onions will be used in salads
Broccoli, some of the Carrots and the rest of the onions will be used in a Stir Fried Rice one night
Cauliflower will be eaten raw with hummus or some ranch dip
Sweet Mini Peppers will be used in salads, but I love these raw with hummus
Pears will be used in a Pear, Walnut Gorgonzola salad
The melon, apples, bananas and the rest of the pears will be eaten as is with breakfast or lunches.
