Sloth Sunday and Bountiful Baskets

Bountiful BasketsMy favorite tradition.  It will include a trip somewhere for Allegra-D (my prescription for 30 at a time ran out so I have to sign my life away for 10 at a time OTC).  Michael said he is cooking some sort of BBQ that he saw on DDD (which means I will spend an hour cleaning up after him).  And I making homemade guacamole from last weeks Bountiful Basket.

Bountiful Baskets Food Co-op is a participatory experience. Participants all save a substantial amount of money on healthy food. In exchange there are no employees to guide participants through the experience.

You decide when to participate (each week or as often as is appropriate for your family) and they have multiple pickup locations in multiple cities and states.  It is $15 each time (extra $3 first time) and then there are add-on’s.   You receive a variety of fruits and vegetables (50/50) and they keep it as seasonal and local as they can.  The add-on’s are things  such as bread, granola, or the guacamole pack that I added last time.  There is also an organic option.

The baskets are HUGE and you are allowed to look through them before you choose.  Some may have more fruit, some more veggies, etc.  Our first week, some had more cherries than others.  Some had more blueberries.  Michael wanted more blueberries (remember the muffins?).   This last time was a lot of radishes.  But it definitely makes you eat things you might not normally buy and find new ways of preparing them!

I am approaching 40 and have been married since my early 20's. I have become more than a little frustrated with having to answer incredibly personal questions about my choice to not have children. It is apparently taboo to talk about religion and politics, but confronting me about my reproductive choices is fair game. It is not a choice I made alone, quickly or lightly. My husband and I made it together. I am not "withholding" children or grandchildren from anyone. There is an astonishing lack of understanding over the idea that it is an actual choice, to have a child or not. There is also an amazing lack of support, discussion and resources for those like me, that have made the choice. This is not a blog for kid-haters, or mocking people for having kids. It is a place where we can talk about living full lives, without kids, and without guilt.

  1. I love this idea. We have CSAs around here which are shares in local farm markets. This sounds better actually.
