She Enjoys the Harvest (Week 3)

Wow! This week's basket is super exciting (at least to me)! If you can join a produce co-op, you really should do it. It's so healthy for your family to have all the fresh produce on-hand and it's so thrifty!!! I am excited to see how things progress over the next few months as our co-op has to move indoors and the veggies and fruit choices vary with the changing of the seasons...

4 lbs baby potatoes, 3 heads of broccoli, 1 bunch of grapes, 7 ears corn, 4 plums, 1 bag of carrots, 1 lrg head of lettuce, 5 gala apples, 4 pear-apples, 5 limes, 1 bunch+ bananas 3 red peppers, 3 pomegranates

This week we added an extra item to our basket: Tortillas! These fresh tortillas are so amazing.

One trick with them is that since you recive 7 dozen, it's best to put some in the freezer. I just slip wax paper between each one (half a sheet folded over with tortillas between every-other) to keep them from sticking together as they defrost later on before use. The 12-inch ones are especially great for enchiladas, burritos and fajitas and the 6-inch ones make great Homemade Tortilla Chips!
