Bountiful Baskets

I have to start this post off by thanking my friend Dallas for introducing me to the wonderful world of Bountiful Baskets. It is AMAZING! What is Bountiful Baskets, you may wonder? Let me share this pearl of wisdom and hopfully you'll treasure it! Bountiful Baskets is a food co-op that is completely run by volunteers. Each Monday you can place an order for a produce basket. It is typically over $60 worth of produce for the tiny price of $15. That's right, fifteen smackaroos! As you can see from the picture above, it is a worthy investment! James and I can't ever finish that much produce so we usually end up giving some of it away so it doesn't go to waste. Ordering opens at noon on Mondays and closes on Tuesdays at 10pm and then on Saturday morning you drive to your local pick-up station for your basket. It is such a great idea! But wait, I haven't even shared the best part of Bountiful Baskets... drumroll... the BREAD!!! They have the yummiest 9 grain bread in the world. It is only 50 calories a slice and much tastier than the cardboard version that SaraLee makes! Even better, it is only $2/loaf! We usually only order from Bountiful Baskets every other month so we buy this bread in bulk and freeze it. We ordered 15 loaves on our last order!!! It is fabulous and I highly suggest that you check it out! Here is their website... enjoy!
*I just realized that this post sounds like a paid adverstisment or something, but honestly... I really do just love Bountiful Baskets that much!!!
