News Flash!

There are two new products on our a la carte offering! Delicious almond milk from Nectar and Green;  and Chickens from Tad at Feather Brook Farms! You can still get your coffee fix from the folks at Tandem as well as all the other add ons. Keep your eyes peeled for more news in the a la carte aisle!!

The Good Stuff:

So many of our members share their incredible creations with us week-to-week on social media, text messages or email.  We love seeing what you do with the goodies we carefully curate for you every week. Most of the time it makes just hungry and jealous.... but we love it.

Some folks have asked about more food resources and recipe ideas- so we want to share resources as they come across our desk/table.

It's exciting to learn that some of our members are food nerds themselves and it gives us great pride to share their work with you, to help create a community around great local food; how to source it, how to cook it and how to love it.

RECIPES

We wanted to have a white fish to offer with the tacos but then on Friday's availability list with Red's Best we saw Yellow Fin Tuna, and we fell in love all over again.  We *hope* there will be more Tuna on Tuesday for our weekday deliveries but availability changes daily. We will let you know if there are any changes.

Seared Tuna Tacos: Chef Sanchez called for lots of citrus here, but we think that you can do with some garlickly raw greens or seared chard.

Swiss Chard Tacos: When Clark Farm told us about the beautiful Swiss Chard they have, we jumped, thinking about sautéed greens in tacos. I'm going to include the tomatoes and smear on the haydari from Magic Bites like a crema. YUM.

Fennel Salad: Still dealing with last week's celery? Go for this bright punchy salad.

From the Sprout Kitchen:

Tomato Soup Straight from the Market - a perfectly cozy soup

Egg Sandwich Topped with Kale Pesto- If it has kale, this is a basically a salad, right?

 

 Stuffed Butternut Squash - Can't wait to try this!
