New Farmer in the House!

Good Morning!

We have had a very busy week here at Family Dinner and we are excited to bring you this week's great haul of goodies! 

A few more notes about precautions we are taking on our side in addition to increased cleaning and sanitation measures in our facility:

  • We are greatly reducing the number of people in our kitchen at any time so that we can maintain distance between our team members. 
  • We are always wearing gloves and changing them between tasks.
  • We will still be doing "unattended delivery" in paper bags. The drivers will text you when they arrive and then leave the share in a safe space. We will not be taking anything (bags, milk bottles) back at this time.
  • We are continuing to ask our team members to stay home if they don't feel well or if they have recently traveled and we are paying them for their time if they have to stay home due to sickness or as a precautionary measure.

We are taking the work of helping us all stay safe and healthy very seriously and we love being able to do the work of keeping us all well fed.  We want to continue supporting the farmers and food purveyors who are affected by the market and business closures, and we recognize that the only way to continue doing that is to make sure that everyone is as safe and healthy as possible.

Thank you for the opportunity to serve you and your family,

Erin + Tim

 

NEW FARMER IN THE HOUSE!

We are really excited to be working with Drumlin Farm this week to bring greens into your shares! Ok, so maybe the title is misleading. Drumlin Farm in Lincoln, MA isn't "new", they've been part of the Mass Audubon Society for a long time as a wildlife sanctuary and a working farm all in one.  But this is the first time we have worked with them and we want to share the news. 

(And if we want to get technical; there is no "house" either so the title is doubly misleading.  But I hope you'll forgive us because the alternative "Experienced Farmers Join a Food Start Up on a Virtual E-Commerce Platform For the First Time" was a mouthful.)

Drumlin is a beautiful space; 4 miles of trails and plenty of peace and quiet. There are pigs, sheep, chickens, and cows on the working farm and big, bright greenhouse housing this field of verdant deliciousness. They reached out to us this week to see if we had room in our shares for their crops and we always love to say yes to that! We hope you enjoy and that they brighten up your plates!

Also for some inspiration this week check out this wonderful series: "What's Eating Dan" from our friend Dan Souza from America's Test Kitchen. We're gonna dive into the episode on mushrooms for ideas for this week's goodies from Fat Moon Mushrooms.

RECIPES

 

Pan Roasted Chicken: Simple and no-fuss. Save the carcass to make broth for recipes later in the week.

One Pot Chicken and Dumplings:  I would sell my soul for a bowl of this right now.

Creamy Dijon Salmon:  I think this creamy dijon sauce would be heaven on almost anything. Roasted Potatoes, Carrots, Chicken,  a Bowl of Cheerios... you get the idea.
