One of my friends introduced me to an organization here in Utah that does a food co-op that is just AWESOME! I got everything above for $23. Everything is local, so you're supporting local organizations and you get everything for about half the normal cost. Best of all, everything was GREAT quality. This month's shared includes: 2 lb chicken breasts 1 lb beef stew meat 1 lb pork spare ribs 1 lb lean ground beef 5 lb Red Potatoes 6 oranges 6 apples 1 bunch green onions 1 head red leaf lettuce 3 artichokes 1 package mushrooms 8 kiwi 1 loaf Stone Ground Artisan Wheat Bread 16 oz rice
There is no hardship requirement to join this group - all that you have to do is dedicate 2 hours a month to service to qualify. Most church callings more than cover that! If you're in Utah and want more info about it, go HERE.
I'm the happily married wife of the most terrific (and helpful in so many ways!) man I know and mother to my two cute and crazy kids - a 6 year old boy and a 4 year old girl, and the stepmom of a spunky 12 year old girl who has insane amounts of energy. They keep me busy. I'm currently working in Public Relations and helping put my husband through nursing school. Super busy, but super happy! :)
