We have been having so much fun using the variety of fruits and veggies in our Bountiful Baskets over the past few months. (For those of you who don't know, Bountiful Baskets is a coop that provides highly discounted fruits and vegetables to its members. Each Saturday we pick up a basket full of a variety of fresh produce. We don't pick what we get, everyone gets the same things.) Thank goodness for Google so that we can learn about some of the produce and how to use it. A few weeks ago the kids and I had a great time preparing and steaming artichokes. We didn't love the way they tasted, but the process was fun.
This week we have to figure out Brussels Sprouts. It is fun to get creative, and having a bunch of fresh produce has helped me enjoy being in the kitchen a little bit more.
