It’s Basket Day!!  My basket this week contained quite a few family favorite fruits and veggies.  Seckel pears, anyone?  Love these!  In addition to our regular produce, my basket contained a “new to me” item – the Chayote squash.  After doing a little research, I am intrigued with this chameleon-like vegetable and can’t wait to taste it.
