Thankful Thursday: Bountiful Baskets

As a mom who is working and trying to keep my household on a budget... not to mention trying to feed my family healthy food(!) I am thankful for Bountiful Baskets!

Bountiful baskets is not a business, they are a Co-op, which is a group of volunteers working together to make sure we have some of the best, freshest, cheapest, local produce we can find. You need to check out their website for all the information.

Basically you place your order, show up on Saturday mornings at your pick up location and bring all your globs of produce home. You never know what you are going to get, but that keeps it interesting! I have come home with so many different things, it is great to search for new recipes and invent your own. 2 weeks ago we had some of the best asparagus ever! And can you believe that my 4 year old can eat her weight in asparagus, mushrooms, and spinach? I totally think she can.

This group started in Arizona and they have spread to Utah, Idaho, Texas, Colorado, Oregon, Washington, Montana, Nevada, and Wyoming. Seriously, something this amazing doesn't spread this fast unless it is really good. Basket prices start at $15 for way more produce than a family of 4 can handle in a week (we usually share our basket with a friend every week) so it is a screaming deal.

Check it out, you will be THANKFUL you did.
