Meal Plan: 5/16 - 5/22

So, we've been participating in Bountiful Baskets for about a month (?) now... And I've got to tell you, I'm a fan!  It's not necessarily ideal, but it works for us.  Ideally, I would have a garden and grow my own produce.  I would love to try supporting our local CSA, but it's just too much money right now.  We only get a basket every other week.  And for the most part, I've been pretty pleased with our baskets.  Our produce consumption has gone through the roof!  I couldn't be more thrilled :)  Admittedly, our family probably eats more veggies than most families.  But I would only buy what I needed.  Now it's more of a forced variety, and that's a good thing!  Now we eat things like pineapple and fresh corn, things I love but wouldn't normally buy.  And it's been nice to have the extra fruit on hand for snacks, etc.  Also, it's been fun planning my meals around our groceries vs. the other way around.  You know me, I like the challenge ;)

Mexican Monday: turkey tacos
Oriental Tuesday: veggie chow mein
Twisted Wednesday: banana pecan pancakes w/ buttermilk syrup
Authentic Thursday: spinach & cheese ravioli/tortellini
TGIFriday: English muffin pizzas
Super Saturday: DATE NIGHT
Special Sunday: chicken pot pie w/ salad

Upcoming recipe: green super smoothie.  You're gonna love it!  *B

I am glad you tried Bountiful baskets. I feel the same way you do about it. We do it about every other week too.
