It was another awesome week for Bountiful Baskets! I'll be out of town next weekend so I'm glad I got a lot of stuff. Hopefully it will last a couple weeks until I can get another basket!
This week my basket included potatoes, mushrooms, cucumbers, romaine lettuce, spaghetti squash, plums, apricots, grapes, pineapple, watermelon, and bananas. I know I haven't been very consistent with my posts lately, and I know you need recipes before your produce goes bad, so I thought today I could include a few links for recipes I don't have on my blog.
Potatoes: potato salad, funeral potatoes, or fried potatoes with bacon
Mushrooms: deep fried mushrooms, kabobs, or sauteed mushrooms (yummy on steak)
Cucumbers: cucumbers in vinegar, various salads, or slice and eat with veggie dip
Romaine lettuce: green salad or grilled romaine
Spaghetti squash: cook in slow cooker and serve with pasta sauce (I can't wait to try this!)
Plums: plum-apple butter (I have made this and it's really good) or plum buckle (I think I'll make this this week)
Apricots: apricot freezer jam (use this recipe but use apricots instead of strawberries or use half of each)
Grapes: grape salad (I have a recipe but it's a family recipe and I can't share it, so use this one) or freeze and eat (so yummy when it's hot)
Pineapple: cut into chunks and eat, grill, or cut into spears, roll in toasted coconut, and freeze
Watermelon: cut into chunks and eat
Bananas: banana "ice cream" or frozen banana bites (careful, these are addicting)
