Bountiful Basket is fan-flippin-tastic.  It’s like a co-op order that you place with people in your community for a bunch of local, seasonal fruit and veggies.  All of this was $15!  I ordered this one a few weeks ago. Yesterday we got an order, and it was bananas, plums, apples, pears, grapes, avocados, broccoli, carrots, cauliflower, tomatoes, lettuce, and cucumbers– in even greater quantities than the above things.  You can also order organic, bread, “theme” baskets (Italian, Mexican, etc), pumpkins/gourds, tortillas… Kind of the bomb.  Anyway, if you live in the states, they do it all over the country.  Especially with winter coming it can really save you money on produce: the best tasting produce I’ve ever had.
I’m going to use the cauliflower to make a base for a healthy chowder or cream soup.  Stay tuned! If it’s a success, I’ll post the recipe ;)
