30 pounds of Apples

I know I have posted before about Bountiful Baskets, but again I have to remind everyone. I love waking up on Saturday mornings and picking my basket up. I pick up at my school because it is at 9:00. There are sites closer to my house, but they are earlier. Sometimes I go to the gym before I pick it up and sometimes after. Today was an after day. I just couldn't get out of the house fast enough.

A couple weeks ago we had these awesome apples in our baskets. Junami apples! Never heard of the them before but they were amazing and I ate the quickly. So this week when I ordered my basket I saw that you could order a case of them. So I did. I read that it was 30 pounds, but didn't think much of it. I was in for a special treat today when I got my basket and apples. I counted, there are 80 of them. Good thing my Mom said she wanted to split the box!

And just incase you wanted to see what we will be eating this next week, here are my fruit and veggies. (Oh don't worry, I got even more apples... haha)

Apples, oranges, bananas, pineapple, mangos, and lemons

Spinach, tomatoes, jerusalem artichokes, squash, cucumbers, and lettuce.

One quick trick that I love is to clean and cut up my leafy greens. Then I store them in the plastic container that I got when I bought some spinach at Costco. I've been eating a lot of salads for lunch and this makes life a lot easier.

First off, the site closest to my house is at 7:45 am! I love bountiful baskets but it makes it a little harder when i know i have to go that early. I still do it but not as often. However, a couple of weeks ago I got those same apples and they were SO good! Wishing I got a basket this week for more of them. They seriously are the best apples i've ever tasted! Maybe i'll order this week and hope for more junamis!
