Farewell

Tomorrow is Will's Farewell-a month before he goes.  This is because there are so many things going on in the ward this month.  It is going to be like an old fashioned farewell.  We are all talking.  I am the Youth Speaker!!!  See you tomorrow!!

The Bounty

At work, I heard about a produce co-op, Bountiful Baskets.  Every Saturday you have the opportunity to get a basket of vegetables and other things for a great price.  The week, our first week, we got the following things for $40:
  • Strawberries-1 basket
  • Bananas-1 large bunch
  • Apples-10 Galas
  • Kiwi fruit-11
  • Cantaloupe-1
  • Romaine Lettuce-1 head
  • Celery-1head
  • Red bell peppers-2 large
  • Onion-1
  • Artichokes-2
  • Carrots-2 bags
All of the above things were $16.00
We added the following:
  • Ciabatta-5 loaves-$10
  • Box of tomatoes-40 huge tomatoes-$10.50
It is a great deal!!  It is like chopped...you have to think of what to do with what you get!! Your first week you also pay $3 for the baskets they have at the pick up area for sorting the produce!!

We have given our neighbor a loaf of bread and some tomatoes.  I made spaghetti sauce from 12 of the tomatoes-I have never done this from scratch!!

We can't wait until next week to see what they have.
