Okay, locals: listen up. This post is for you. (for everyone else: check into co-ops in your area...they're everywhere) I mentioned the produce co-op that I do every other week, Bountiful Baskets. I got lots of questions and I know a ton of you haven't participated yet. Seriously - you have to check it out! It seems that each week, I'm getting more and more food.
This is what I just came home with for $15...
9 ears of corn
5 HUGE tomatoes
a lunch sack full of green beans
2 heads of broccoli
3 green peppers
a bag of grapes
6 white peaches
For $15 !!! They say it's $50 worth of produce; enough of each serving to feed a family of 4 for the two weeks between deliveries. And I decided to try their bread this time for $2 each. I got the 9 grain and the honey whole wheat. Trader Joe's just keeps raising the price of my $1.50 bread...it's now almost $2.50. I know, I know...it's only a dollar, but still, every little bit helps in this economy, right? There are a bunch of pick up sites around the valley, but if you don't see one close enough, they're looking for "hosts" to run new locations. I'm tossing the idea around in my head of talking to them about one near my house...like I need something else to do! Okay, I'm off to revise my meal plan for this week.
