Azure – July 2013

The truck arrived at out home yesterday with everybody’s Azure orders. I’ll have to remember to take pictures of the truck next month. 🙂

If you don’t know what Azure Standard is, you can check out a previous post that I wrote about them. And you can always check out their web site, too.

When people first hear about Azure they often ask what I buy. It can get overwhelming looking through all the items they carry because they have a lot! But here are some pictures of what I got this month. We have a certain amount budgeted each month for Azure. And since there is so much great produce available this time of the year, I spent a good portion of the budget on produce like…

Organic grapes

Organic Cherries

Organic blueberries

Some odds & ends like raw, organic cheese.

And a case of Lundberg organic brown rice cakes. I figured you didn’t need a picture of those. 🙂

At this point you might be thinking something like, “What the heck are you going to do with all the fruit, Antoinette?” Yep, that’s a lot of fruit. However, the kids love frozen grapes, which is why I bought so many. They are so expensive in the store, but when I can buy them in bulk I get a much better price. Same with cherries.

We bought a cherry pitter last year when I bought our first case of cherries.

It may only get used once a year, but it was well worth the price.

The boys are working hard to get those cherries in the freezer. (Well, what didn't go into their mouths any way.)

And here's our first batch of grapes ready to go in the freezer.

And guess what? I mentioned wanting to try making Clafoutis this week. I’d never heard of them before until I came across them in this blog post. Well, I actually made them! With fresh cherries! And they were yummy. 🙂

What kinds of items do you buy in bulk?
