Dear Members, 

Weekly and Bi-weekly members have a few treats this week, including munchkin pumpkins, decorative gourds, cauliflower, spaghetti squash, and cabbage to accompany our delicious kale, collards, and broccoli. Enjoy!

CSA Shares - Weekly and Bi-weekly Members

Gourds and Munchkins Pumpkins - Put these in a bowl on your dining table and enjoy the fall colors!  The gourds are purely decorative and not suitable for eating.  We've had mixed reviews on eating the munchkins. I have not tried these recipes, but was delighted to find them specifically for munchkins. Stuffed Baby Pumpkins or Stuffed Munchkins are both a breeze to make and so fun to serve. Use anything for the stuffing, from quinoa to sausage and a few green peppers, onions and mushrooms. Or, sweeten them with cinnamon, brown sugar, and nutmeg.

Spaghetti Squash - This amazing vegetable is a fabulous pasta substitute. Someone said it was "the best carb-free comfort food". One of our members encouraged us to put fried eggs on top with broccoli on the side and it was delicious!!  But you can do anything with it. Here is a slide gallery that will be fun to flip through and contains 53 Recipes for Spaghetti Squash

Cauliflower - the most delicate and delicious non-green I've ever eaten, cauliflower is creamy and super tasty when it's this fresh. Cauliflower Pizza Crust is all the rage and it is great fun. For me the more elegant and super healthy Creamy Mashed Cauliflower is to die for. Cauli-power Fettuccini "Alfredo" (Vegan) is super special. And, kids will love Cauliflower Mac & Cheese

Broccoli - Add it to cauliflower for Cauliflower Mac & Cheese (above) or Cauliflower and Broccoli with Fresh Herb Butter

Collard Greens - Collard Greens, Cornmeal and Sausage Soup will kick your greens into high comfort food gear. And, you should not miss this Pasta with Collard Greens and Onions recipe. It's amazing!

Kale - We love to roast kale. Simply remove or not the stems (I like to remove them), break into large chunks, stir in a bowl with olive oil to coat, add salt and pepper to taste and cook in a 425 degree oven for 10 minutes. Add feta or parmesan or not (I don't). 

Cabbage - A cajun friend of mine told me this recipe for beer cabbage. Cut the core out of the cabbage. from the bottom, slice half-way down in a checker-board pattern. Pour butter and beer into the cabbage. Wrap in foil and smoke, grill or cook in the oven slowly. For me, the beer is optional. Here is a similar recipe for Grilled Cabbage. It the oven it would be Roasted Cabbage with Bacon (bacon is optional). And, everyone needs to know How to Make Sauerkraut in a Mason Jar.


Protein Shares - Weekly and Bi-weekly Members

This week's share includes:

Beef Roast - My sister is cooking this today and making Beef Sandwiches Au Jus. She literally chopped an onion very fine, added beef broth, and put it in a slow cooker. She'll put this beef on french bread, add a bit of broth and top with cheese, broil the open faced sandwich just long enough to melt the cheese and serve. Here is a similar recipe for Beef Sandwiches Au Jus

Pork Sausage - For breakfast or in a Spinach, Sausage, Feta Quiche. You might substitute broccoli or collards for the spinach. Or just make it into patties and add to biscuits - the Pillsbury kind in the refrigerated section of your grocery store. 

Beef Burger - This is delicious: Stuffed Cabbage with Beef, Pork and Rice


Enjoy!
