The highs and lows of parenting and real estate.

This Week, We May Have Overdone It

Last week’s co-op produce was almost completely consumed (we have some romaine, a tomato or two and 3 carrots left, I think), so this week, when I was ordering, I decided to throw in a couple of extras. They were offering an Italian Ingredient Pack that I had seen the week before and it looked pretty good, and a Guacamole Pack. I am a sucker for all things Italian and even more so for The Most Perfect Food: Guac. So I ordered both. In addition to the regular basket. It was $30 and this is what we got:

Yes, that’s:

6 ears of corn
6 potatoes
1 bunch of bananas
15 small apples
4 tomatoes
1 butternut squash
5 pears
8 peaches
1 bunch of black grapes
1 HUGE eggplant
1 head of romaine
5 jalapenos
1 bunch of green onions
10 avocados
1 box of mushrooms
1 bag of Italian herbs (rosemary, basil, etc)
2 zucchinis
1 huge red onion
1 lemon
5 limes
4 yellow onions
2 heads of garlic
1 bunch of cilantro
1 bunch of Italian parsley

um…. holy cow what are we going to do with all this food? I need to rework my weekly menu. Anyone want to come over for dinner?

  1. That is a ton of food for $30. I am going to have to remember this. I think making marinara and other veggie-heavy things you can freeze is a great idea!

  2. Elizabeth,

    I’m a regular reader of Kelli’s blog and popped over her to see what you had to say about coupons. I think I’ll be a regular here, too! You are so right about feeding your marriage, and it looks like you do a great job at feeding your family, too. I heard about the co-ops in your area, and I hope to take part in that ASAP.

    My husband, daughter and I are moving to Scottsdale in about a month. (Kelli tried to connect us to you, but we were already connected with another fabulous realtor recommended by the company my husband is working for) I will certainly be looking at your blog for things to do in the area, and great recipes to fix for the family.

    I’m happy to meet you here, and maybe some day in person? Who knows!
