Week 5

Posted 6/27/2018 11:28am by Stephanie Bradshaw.


Hi Friends,

As our 5th week of the CSA ends, we hope you guys are enjoying the boxes and looking forward to what the next week brings.  Our tomatoes are finally in, and they just make summer meals taste so much better.  Sautéed squash and onions, topped with some fresh basil and tomatoes, is one of my all time favorite things to eat!  When it comes to getting your kids to eat veggies, it can sometimes be a little tricky.  First, don't give up...they need those nutrients, and it's worth it to figure out ways to get it in them :)  Spaghetti sauce is an easy way to sneak them in.  You can blend up any of the squashes or zucchini and add it in when cooking.  It just makes the sauce a little thicker, but most won't even notice.  Make sure you get the onion and garlic in as well...they're potent cancer fighters, and make an unbelievable flavor.  If at the end of the week you have any greens left (kale, bok choy, etc), try blending them up and adding to a soup.  If you have any tips you'd like to share, please add them to our FB page...we'd love to hear from you!

Lots of you have asked me about the B&W salve in the store.  Yes, I use it on my face at night....I'm thinking if it helps your skin to heal, it should help prevent wrinkles...right  :)  It's my go to for sunburns, eczema, or any skin irritations.  It's just a great healer in our home for skin!  As you use it, let me know what you think.

I know we've been low on our pastured meat, but I only use farmer's that I trust.  Sometimes that means having to wait for an animal to be ready.  Yesterday, I headed out early in the morning, and loaded up on Pastured pork and Beef!  I've sent 150 chickens to the processor this week, and those will be added to the store next week.  We've got tons of bacon, sausage, pork chops, ham, NY strips, Porterhouse Steaks, and Ribeye's!  Enjoy folks....it's the best of the best! 

 

Next week's harvest should include:  Celery, Onions, Squash, Zucchini, Green Beans, Kale or Swiss Chard, Carrots, Cauliflower or Broccoli, Cucumbers, Tomatoes, and Potatoes!  I've got an amazing recipe for Porkchops with squash and potatoes, and a Black bean-Potato-Swiss Chard Hash that are delish.  Add in a NY strip with green beans and a cheesy broccoli casserole, and you'll have three great meal ideas for next week!  

Don't forget about the Family Farm Day coming up on Saturday, June 30th..We hope to see lots of you come out!
