I have been so busy getting my flowers done that I haven't been able to do anything with my blog and it is starting to bug me, so here it is! I will just do a couple things today because I don't really want to wait for the proper day to post them.
Ok, First thing...Have you guys heard of Bountiful Baskets? My Relief Society President gave me a bag full of plums and said she got it from them so I looked them up on the internet and Hurray! They are here in Las Vegas now. So It is a food co op. You pay 15.00 and get like 25.00 or more worth of produce. You just have to sign up on your day and then go on saturday to your location, bring your own basket or cooler and you get a ton of produce! They also have bread and specials on seasonal stuff. So here is my basket. I also love it because it forces you to eat stuff that you don't normally buy so it made us healthier this week.
7 crisp gala apples
2 large bags of grapes, one green and one black which tasted like grape jelly
1 carton mushrooms
2 acorn squash
2 head of broccoli
1 large lettuce
1 large honeydew
Cool huh? I was super excited. I am going to do it again this weekend. Oh for you people in vegas, Sunflower Market has their Utah peaches on sale for 57 cents a pound and they are delicious! I bought like 10 lbs. and I made some peach jam today..
Alright, so I had to come up with what to do with my mushrooms and broccoli because I already had Broccoli in my fridge, so I found this recipe which is like a tater tot casserole that I have seen other people make but it was super yummy with broccoli.
Tasty Broccoli Casserole!!!
1 large head broccoli
1 lb ground beef
1/2 carton mushrooms
1 can cream of chicken soup
2/3 C sour cream
1/2 onion chopped
1/2-1 cup shredded cheese, I use a mixed blend
package of instant potatoes and ingredients to make that.
Start cooking the ground beef. Chop up broccoli and put in a medium size casserole dish. Remove stems from mushrooms, rinse and chop. Chop onion, add to ground beef. Drain ground beef if there is a bunch of fat. Add mushrooms, Saute until soft and getting brown. Add can of chicken soup and sour cream, mix together. Add broccoli and mix. Turn on oven to 350. Dump broccoli mix into casserole dish. Make instant potatoes according to package directions, spoon over top of broccoli mix. Sprinkle cheese over top and cover with aluminum foil. Pop in the oven and cook for 1 hour.
This was very delicious, Ella liked the broccoli and Warren and I ate it for leftovers for a couple days because it was so tasty.
So that is what I have been up to, along with working on my flowers during all my spare time. Hope all of you are doing great, I'll try to post a couple more things this week. Have a great week!
