Cornucopia (Horn of Plenty)

This is Jenny - I decided to change pace with a post about something other than our latest adventures. Plus, I have to tell you about Bountiful Baskets.

For those of you who haven't heard about Bountiful Baskets, it's a weekly produce pick-up - provided by local co-ops - where you get a basket full of fresh fruits and vegetables for $15.00...yes, $15.00!!! I love it!

You can go to www.bountifulbaskets.org to sign up starting at 7:00 p.m. every Monday for the pick-up on Saturday (It's $18.00 for your first pick-up) - But you have to hurry, the pick-ups fill up fast! You just pay online with your debit or credit card, and they have pick-up locations all across the Western United States, so it's ridiculously convenient...Our closest pick-up point is less than 10 minutes away.

I've never enjoyed shopping, and so I prefer this much more than combing grocery store ads for sales, and picking out produce that looks decent and standing in line...Plus, you could never get all of this produce at the store for $15.00. Check out this week's basket!

Amazing!...pineapple, spaghetti squash, butternut squash, cantaloupe, 7 Fuji apples, 4 Asian pears (SO DELICIOUS), 1 carton of blackberries, 3 bunches of bananas, 4 tomatoes, 3 seedless cucumbers, 1 bunch of celery, 1 head of romaine lettuce

Giant organic blackberries from our Bountiful Basket...mmm!

Stuffed spaghetti squash with parmesan...beautiful!

Let's have spaghetti squash instead of turkey for Thanksgiving next year! (Just kidding...)

  1. They should pay you! If I wasn't already doing Bountiful Baskets, you'd totally have me sold. Also, your stuffed spaghetti squash looks really delicious, so we need to get the recipe from you. We made our first one into normal spaghetti, so we want to try your yummy idea on our second :)

  2. I love local co-ops! Ours are a little more expensive down here though...$22 a week. But still a definite steal!! :)

  3. I need your spaghetti squash recipe! They are rather new to me and I only know how to boil them and serve them with butter - and my husband won't eat them.

    Cute blog. :)
