Saturday Meal Planning

You know the drill- it was Bountiful Basket Saturday! I am super excited by our basket this week. Strawberries and corn on the cob-awesome! I hoping to get some seeds planted today for our own garden. We’ve had varying success with gardening over the last three years and I’m hoping that this year will be a good one. Having Bountiful Baskets has made it seem like we have a successful garden year round. It’s been a lot of fun. 
So here’s what we got in our basket (all for $15 and with no extra add-ons this week):
Bag of Apples
6 Kiwi
7 Roma Tomatoes
3 Lemons
8 Bananas
6 Ears of Corn
2 Romaine Lettuce
Bunch of Spinach
3 Yellow Onions
4 Yellow Squash
And here are the meal ideas I’ve come up with:
Sloppy Joes with Savory Grilled Corn on the Cob
Grilled Tomato & Cheese Sandwiches with Side Salad
Spring Veggie Rolls with Rice
Chinese Chicken Salad

Apple Turnovers
Apple Scones
Banana Bread (requested by my husband)
Lemon Brownies(recommended by my sister)

Now it’s your turn- share one favorite recipe in the comments section that you think we should try!

  1. Your basket looks amazing! I totally want to get one myself but all the pick up times here are early AM and it's hard to get out with Russell that early. Plus I know the site says they would like you to volunteer when you can and there is no way I could do that with Russell. At least not effectively. HA HA HA! MMM everything looks good though! I don't have a recipe but my go to lately has been oven roasting veggies. A little olive oil, garlic salt and pepper and it's just so good. I even found I love brussels sprouts cooked that way. :)

  2. I have been obsessed with apple pie lately! I make moms pie crust…then mix my apples with some cinnamon, sugar and a little flour,and the best part a strudel topping. Serve with vanilla ice cream. Yum! I would love a basket sometime…maybe I will have you try for me since I am to slow :)
