Andy went on a bike ride with a friend this morning. While he was gone I shampooed our carpet. I started on it yesterday. It was quite the job. The carpet is drying as I write this and I’m hoping to be able to move the furniture back in place by this evening.
We got also another Bountiful Basket
this morning and I am so thrilled with what we got! I couldn’t wait to start using it all. See- I already used some of the celery, green onions, and oranges to put together this lunch-
This week we got our regular conventional basket but we also added an asian themed basket. I’m wishing we had got another 5 loafs of 9 grain bread but I didn’t realize we were low. We only have one loaf left and I have been inhaling that bread, it’s so delicious! So here’s what we got this week:
Conventional Basket ($15)
8 chili peppers
17 little orange peppers (anyone know exactly what these are?)
bag of carrots
Asian Themed Basket ($8.50)
10 water chestnuts
bag of basil
ginger root (yay! I use ginger a lot)
bag of snap peas
Still loving Bountiful Baskets! If you want to participate check out their website
. They have sites in 20 different states (multiple cities per state) with new sites being opened every week.

As you can see, a lot of my recipes this week are coming from For The Love of Cooking
. I just discovered that blog and I am anxious to try a bunch of her recipes out! Anyone want to come to dinner? We have a lot of veggies to get through!
I’m going to spend the rest of the day cleaning the house and doing laundry. I need to wash linens today as well as our normal load. Fun, huh? I also need to go to the store for a couple of staples and household products. But don’t worry. I do have some ‘fun’ time planned today. Pilates and Stretch this afternoon and it’s nice enough to play frisbee with Ash in the backyard. I also need to get caught up in my journal and caught up on Downton Abbey
! I love Saturdays, don’t you?
