Bountiful Basket 10/02/10

This week's basket cost me $26.50 total.  I bought just the basic basket and then the 5 loaves of 9-grain bread.   Since I didn't buy an extra pack of some sort this week it kind of looks like I got less, but really didn't!  There's quite a bit there, trust me!   Here's this week's breakdown:

7 Green Plums (never heard of them before, but they look yummy!)
6 Bananas
6 Apples
1 Canteloupe
1 Bag of Green Grapes
1 Box of Strawberries

5 Tomatos
5 Red Peppers
5 lbs Bag of Potatoes
2 Artichokes
1 Cauliflower
1 Romaine Lettuce

5 Loaves of 9-Grain Bread ($10 Extra)

Now, a quick note on that bread.  If you recall, I purchased the bread with my first Bountiful Basket last month.  It is honestly the second best bread I have ever had (the first being the pumpernickle bread from Outback Steakhouse).  It is delicious!  And since I've been making so many jams lately we've been eating a lot of bread lately.  Anyway, if you get BB and haven't tried the 9-grain bread yet, you won't regret giving it a try!  It's only $2/loaf and in the supermarket comparable bread would be $4/loaf at least!  It's simply delicious!

I did end up using most of my Mexico pack, btw!  Stay tuned in a few days to find out what I used it for.  :)

Wow, yes I agree multi-grain bread is life changing:) Where do you find the 9-grain, like whole foods or somewhere?

I get the 9-grain from my co-op. If you live in Arizona, Utah, Nevada, Colorado, Idaho, Texas, Wyoming, or Washington you may have a Bountiful Basket near you! Check it out at
