This morning, while the house was still asleep, a couple of Christmas elves snuck our Bountiful Basket into the kitchen (thanks Mom and Dad!).

Look who was up and ready to poke through our Bountiful Basket when I got home this morning. “Plums, Mom! I love plums!” I have been ordering organic baskets for the past few months, but this week I fell down on the job and ordered at the last minute. By that time all of […]
