While you wait!

We have been in Omaha, in our "new" old house (how did we buy yet another home with a non-functional kitchen in need of a gut and remodel???) for 5 days.  We've been through 5 gallons of paint so far (no VOC, of course), used an entire box of screws, and 37 paper plates (blush).

And even though my kitchen is a 1970's nightmare, food has been coming out of it. Really boring food, but food nonetheless.

While I'm gone, I want to suggest you check out http://www.bountifulbaskets.org/.  My sister introduced me to this new co-op and I'm very excited to make my first order this week.  Unlike many co-ops, this is a weekly fresh produce co-op, with no fees.  I was pretty impressed with the things she was getting in her baskets and was thrilled to find there is one already set up in Omaha, with the drop only a couple blocks from my house. 

While there is not a drop set up in Wichita, Kansas, where many of my readers live, I looked into it, and setting up a local group seems pretty simple. 

Happy summer eating!

  1. I've been using Bountiful baskets for about 2 years in Nevada...an I LOVE it!

  2. Hey, Gluten Free Mommy-

    Do you have ALDI stores where you are? I am just curious. I actually took the money I was going to spend on my Basket this week to ALDI, and I have to admit, I could get more at ALDI. I am thinking the Baskets might be a better 'deal' in the winter when fresh produce isn't coming out everyone's ears? Not sure. Omaha's drop is pretty small so you can't get the extras like bread (not that we could eat it) or granola (would be nice to ge that after baby comes and I'm not making my own).


  3. You can't even get the organics here. That would probably work out to be a better deal, too. I am probably nothing, if not cheap... WELL healthy, too. But cheap.
