Last week, I had planned to make caprese salad with dinner, but our schedule changed and the ingredients were still sitting around on Friday afternoon. I didn’t want them to go to waste, so I put the salad together on a piece of Trader Joe’s whole wheat lavash and wrapped it up as a sandwich. […]
This week I was so excited to discover a new pick-up site for our Bountiful Basket that is less than a mile from our house. How convenient! The time (7:00am) is a tad early for my liking, but I really can’t complain. Joe went with me and had a great time picking out the “perfect” […]

Last week, Bountiful Baskets offered a 25-lb. bag of green chiles as a $12.00 add-on to our basket. I knew I wanted some, but didn’t think I could handle all 25 pounds. Thankfully, my parents ordered a bag for us to split. Because there were so many chiles (and only 3 bad ones in the […]

My friend Angela suggested making a Thai cucumber salad. I went online to search for a recipe and came across several. So I took […]
