It's Bountiful Basket day! I was excited to see what we would get in our basket this time. I was hoping for some berries, since we haven't had berries in a while.
We got some! Strawberries AND blueberries. We also received a pineapple, nectarines and plums. For veggies we received green cauliflower, broccoli, onions, yellow squash, brussels sprouts, and tomatoes !!
It is the first rainy, cool day that we have had here in NE Georgia for a long time. Bonus! I can roast them all in the oven. This time I tried using a large ziploc. I put the cut up veggies in it along with a glug of oil and salt. I closed the ziploc and shook it with all my might. I think the oil coats the veggies better than when I put them in a bowl and toss. An even coating is the key to even baking and thus the key to even flavor. The oil seals it in and allows a gentle crisping.
I baked some potatoes and popped some oatmeal-banana bars in the oven too. I had a couple of leftover bananas from the last basket, so I mashed them and threw in a cup of oatmeal, a pinch of sugar, salt, cinnamon, and butter, added raisins and sunflower seeds. A healthy baked snack.
Of course while it was baking I had a cup of caramel ice cream with caramel on top. Life is good.
