Get yer Oats here!

Edible Boston! Get Your Edible Boston right heeere!
We were tickled pink to be featured by the amazing Rachel Caldwell in the most recent edition of Edible Boston.
It perfectly captures what we are trying to do with Family Dinner, the love we have for our farmers and members and that facts that we're complete nerds. We would say that's about perfect.

Newbies:
We have two New Kids on the Block this week!!
Maine Grains and Lark Fine Foods are coming into your Family Dinner shares for the first time!

Maine Grains is the maker of the rolled oats you'll discover in your bags. Maine Grains wants to be a "partner in the regenerative economy by milling nutritious, organic and heritage grains using a traditional stone milling process. " 

These little guys are packed with flavor and ready to play a role and in your sweet or savory recipes.

Next up, Lark Fine Foods is a 100% female owned (oh, heck yes!) bakery of "Cookies for Grown Up" in Essex, MA. 
We got to visit the beautiful facility two weeks ago and sample all the fresh goodies. Erin ate cookies for breakfast for days. (Three cheers for Research!) We settled on the flavors we see in your shares. We hope you love them as much as we do!

RECIPES

Overnight Oats: What is the damn trend of deliciousness everyone is brining into the office in mason jars? Overnight oats are a great hearty snack to prep the night before with your favorite accoutrements. In the morning you just grab and go. Try with the almond milk from Nectar & Green!

Savory Sunday Oats: Oatmeal isn't just a mattress for raisins and brown sugar. Its also ready for your savory preparations. 

Simple Granola recipe: Just what it says. Makes the whole house smell amazing.

Sweet Potatoes and Ground Beef: Speaking of grab and go for the office, this dish is ideal for weekday lunches; warm, hearty and quick!

Salmon with Beets and Horseradish: I love the bite of horseradish mixed into a cream for fish, or in mustard for sausages. Its a nice thing to keep in the fridge to add bite to dishes.

Cookies: Grab them and eat them like a frenzied zoo animal before anyone else does!
