Local Food Love Affair

 

Valentine's Day has come and (mercifully) gone. What remains is our undying love for delicious, local food and our joy to share it with you. 

Love and respect are at the foundation of the local food system and we hope you find this week's share to be chock full of it. From the beautiful swordfish from Red's Best to the baby lettuces that Andrew at Clark Farm has grown and harvested just for us.  And of course, chocolate. The bars from Taza chocolate make a nice surprise gift or a perfect item to fiendishly squirrel away  in your desk drawer when lunch seems like a distant dream at work.

We are so enamored that we wrote you a poem, a haiku in fact, we hope you like it.

Local Food, So good
Tasty, Fresh and Delicious
More Donut Holes*, please.

Besides our (very obvious) poetic gifts, we hope you know how much we love and appreciate all of our Family Dinner members. If this were the final scene of Say Anything, we would be John Cusack outside your house- holding aloft a Family Dinner insulated bag full of treats instead of a stereo.

Thank you for making this all possible!
* Donut Holes will be back in the rotation soon.

RECIPES

Swordfish with Leeks and Citrus: Brighten up the winter blahurgggghs with this dish. If you don't have citrus you can skip or even replace with Apples.

Swordfish with Capers and Potatoes: If I had to think about my ONE true love, it would be capers. Little salty briny punches to your palate. A delight here. You could also move the Skate dish seamlessly into this recipe.

Skate Schnitzel: I'm sorry, what? Skate Wing Schnitzel? I am sure this has our Austrian friends aghast and saying "was zur Hölle ist das?" We get it, it sounds weird, but we can't wait to try it.

Potato Leek and Curry Soup:  Like a warm blanket and a hug from a puppy. Of course if you don't have curry on hand we can go for the original .
