Surprise! New Add-ons!

Surprise! New Add-ons!

It turns out that every six years, Erin's and my (Shannon's) birthdays fall on consecutive packing days, and this happens to be one of those years.  And who doesn't love giving presents on their birthdays?? This year, we are gifting you not one, but TWO new add-ons!  (And a short newsletter!)

So what are they?

  • For my fellow GF eaters, we are now offering a Gluten-Free Grain of the Week add-on! A rotation of breads, pastas, granolas, and more! 
  • For those who daydream about rolling around in a meadow of wildflowers, we have you partially covered with a Flower Bunch! A rotation of bunches while the season lasts!

Head over to the Pick of the Week page to add these new and exciting add-ons (or shoot us an email at hello @ sharefamilydinner dot com to have us add them for you)! 


WHAT'S IN THE BAG?

Delivery dates: Saturday, 8/14 and Tuesday, 8/17

Note: If you order a "Meat and Fish Share" you will receive just the meats listed, not the "dairy" items (i.e., eggs, yogurt, etc). If you order a "Fish and Seafood Share" you will receive the fish listed, not the dairy items.

AVOCADO Reminder: At certain points of the year, avocados will randomly decide to be grey on the inside, while not discernible from the outside. For this reason (and for only a few weeks), we will be switching to an Organic Avocado from California in our tropical fruits section.

RECIPES

(from Shannon)

I want to see what you're making! Send pics of your creations and other recipes to recipes at sharefamilydinner dot com for us to highlight.

Peach Salsa - Did you somehow not inhale all of last week's peaches immediately, or are you receiving a fruit share this week? Check out this salsa recipe sent in by David C! Thanks for sharing!!

PIZZA DOUGHHHHH - New to working with pizza dough? A little intimidated? No worries. Check out this step-by-step guide on working with fresh 'za dough. :) 

Haddock, Mushroom, Cheese Bake - I mean, do I need to say any more? Mushrooms and cheese and haddock? Yes, please! 

Pepper, Onion, Feta Pizza - I'm going to make a bold statement: I LOVE feta on pizza, maybe more than mozzarella...

Cucumber and Tomato Salad - Not feeling tomatoes on your 'za? Well, try them in a cucumber salad!  (One of my favorite summer sides!)

Green Bean Salad - My next favorite summer side? Green Bean Salad! Woot-woot!

Plum Recipes - This week's Fruit Share features a new variety of plums.  If you're wondering how to eat them (other than shoveling them right into your face), here you go! 

Peach Tarte Tatin - If you were curious as to what kind of kid I was in high school, in French class we did a unit on French foods. I picked out a Tarte Tatin, and--without being asked--made said delicious pastry for class, and subsequently requested extra credit points. (Yep, I was that kid.)  BUT replace the traditional apples with peaches, and oh, my--you will thank yourself later.
