I love lunch every single day. It is so nice to be able to take a break from teaching, and talk with adults. I learn so many things during my lunch break. People bring leftovers which sparks conversations about new meals. I also recieved a recipe for amazing granola along with a sample this week. The women (and men) that I work with are amazing.
One day somehow we came upon the topic of Bountiful Baskets. And after that I knew I wanted to try it. With cooking more, and trying to eat more healthy I have noticed my groceries are not so cheap. Especially right now with trying to eat more produce. The other day I wouldn't buy ingredients for a salad because lettuce was $3 a head, and tomatoes were almost $3 a pound.
Today I went and picked up my first basket. I was so impressed with what I got. Unfortunately the truck that brings the food was late. I woke up at 6:45, got dressed for the gym and planned on picking up my basket, running 4 miles, and then going to a gym class at 8. The truck got there when I got there so I ended up helping/waiting for almost an hour before we could load up our food and take it home. It wasn't a huge deal, but I hope things go a little more smoothly next time. I had to sacrifice my 4 mile run to get my produce, but I guess it's ok this week.
I ended up with:
Carton of strawberries (2) (I got an extra for helping put baskets together)
Head of lettuce
Bag of green beans
Green peppers (2)
Zucchini squash (20
It costs $15 for a basket. If it's your first time you have to pay a $3 fee. So for $18, I have enough produce for me and my sister. I am really excited about this!
