Joe and I participated in a great new adventure this morning. Bountiful Baskets!! (Thank you Joy for the suggestion.) Have you heard of them? If not, check out www.bountifulbaskets.org to find out more.

I purchased my basket on Monday morning and our scheduled pickup time was at 8am Saturday. Since I didn't have to work until 1pm, 8 o'clock was WAY to early for me today. We picked up just down the street from out house - We were lucky to have 3 pickup options close to our house this week, I'm hoping for the same next week. We met a few of the volunteers (One of the ladies I knew from my days of working at the West Jordan Smart Style. She was a regular customer there.) They were very helpful and guided us through our first pickup. We filled up our cooler and headed home with our goodies.

These baskets have 50% fruit and 50% vegetables. I'm excited to get such great produce for a cheap price, variety and such a large amount. It forces us to eat a little healthier too and I could definitely use that. (We got cauliflower in our basket and we aren't huge fans. But then I remembered a restaurant in SLC - Five Alls - has a great 'cream of cauliflower soup' similar to cream of broccoli. Joe is excited to test out the recipe!) See? I'm already happy about it because we get to try new things!!!

Our new weekly adventure - just me and Joe. #148 - BOUNTIFUL baskets!


  1. I had a feeling that you would love the baskets - it is fun to go through week just anticipating what you will get on Saturday! BTW - your pineapple looks way better than mine!! LOL

  2. I have heard of this before...I thought it was a Utah thing...but I checked out the link you posted and they have a location a few miles away from me!! I am going to try this out! Yay for fresh produce and healthier eating (heaven knows we need more of that in our little family...let's just say a little too much eating out the last couple months!) Thanks for posting!
