Food and Fun


What a healthy dinner! Of course after, we filled up on BYU Mint Brownies that Brynn and I had made. We just googled "mint brownies" and that was the name of the recipe that came up. Our brownies however, were True Blue because we didn't have any green food coloring.

Anyway, thanks to http://bountifulbaskets.org it has been like summer every day with all this fresh garden produce. Bountiful baskets, in case you don't already know is a food co-op where you get a good haul of fresh produce in exchange for a minimal fee and some volunteer effort. This is our second time ordering. We got avocados, oranges, strawberries, blackberries, tomatoes, cucumbers, romaine, squash, and a coconut. Total cost $15.00. Something about having a basket full of garden surprises makes it way more fun to eat veggies. ( You never know what you're going to get when you show up) We've had salads every day. The bread is ciabatta bread. I didn't know what that was when I ordered it but I thought it sounded fun. It made for some tasty garlic bread. I first heard about this organization from Michelle. Has anyone else joined? So far so good...

We could have lost all our dinner at the carnival which we headed to shortly after. The people on the ride before us did.
The girls absolutely would not let the weekend go by without making sure we took them to the carnival. Kate and Brynn were up for all the wild rides. The carnival workers don't really enforce the height rules so I was able to take them on the whirliest twirliest ride there. Luckily, we all kept our dinners down but there was plenty of screaming! Cannon and Adrie went on the Merry -go -round. At least we didn't lose Bud this time but we did lose Dad. He kept getting sidetracked by people that I didn't know...which could only mean that they were clients.
Fun times for everyone!

That is awesome that you get all that in the co-op. What a great idea. I'll have to check into it.

My neighbor started doing the co-op as well. I'm not quite ready to gamble on the limited selection of veggies we'll actually eat, so we'll wait until they have a straight corn/carrot offering.
Love Adrie's hat. Love carnivals--BD make any carnie cracks?

Yum! I don't think we could do the baskets yet. Too much pressure on just Russell and me to eat all that healthy goodness!
Looks like carni fun!

food looks yummy to me. And the brownies sound great!
The carnival looks like a lot of fun. It seems like you are always having a fun adventure.

tried to sign up when Michelle first told me about it - but it wasn't available in our area yet... and now that it IS available, I'm the last to hear about it somehow??? go figure, maybe I'll get in on it soon - gotta start eating healthy sometime right???

I was afraid to sign up. I'd have to drive 20 minutes or less to get the food and then I'd have to eat more veggies. I'm not sure I'm ready to be that grown up.
