At first glance, this week’s organic basket was a little light. And when we spend $10 extra for organic, that is not something we want to see. Upon closer inspection though, I think the items themselves were small (no giant broccoli or huge squash), so the overall haul was pretty good.
Our $26.50 organic basket included:
-6 gala apples
-8 small mangoes
-4 lb bag oranges
-6 sweet potatoes
-6 roma tomatoes
-1 bunch spinach
Leila dove right into the apples while we tried to figure out our mystery vegetable. I’m pretty certain they are beets. We had six of them in various sizes:
Two were tiny!
We also ordered the five pack of 9-grain bread for $10 so that we could stock up for the holiday break that our co-op is taking.
So, about the beets…Do you like them? What is your favorite way to prepare them? Please share in the comment section!
