Dear Members,

Greens are back! And, cantaloupe to make a wonderful share for our Weekly members. I could put almost all of it into a smoothie and whirl away! Try Cucumber-Cantaloups Green Smoothie or any of the terrific recipes below. 

CSA Shares - Weekly Members

Cantaloupe and Cucumber - these two friends are just fabulous together in Minty Cucumber and Cantaloupe Salad (with feta!!!). Or, make water for your favorite prince or princess with Cucumber and Cantaloupe Water. Cucumber and Cantaloupe Salsa perks up everything from fish to chicken to eggs. Rain and heat have ripened the cantaloups to make it extra sweet and ready to eat! See Fall Greens Mix (below) for a great salad. 

Eggplant - With all of these beautiful veggies, I think you should totally indulge in Panko-Crusted Baked Eggplant Fries with (or without) Curried Cashews.  

Malabar Spinach - Malabar is not related to spinach. Rather it is a rich, nutritious red vine with beautiful, succulent leaves that holds up well in soups and stir-fries.  Try it as a salad green, stir it into pasta, or garnish your sandwiches with it. Add black beans in this vegan and Indian with Malabar Spinach Curry. Or, extract its healthiest nutrition in this Mushroom and Malabar stir-fry. 

Fall Greens Mix - Yummmmm! Greens again. I'm so ready for them. In this mix, we've taken the baby leaves of Swiss Chard, Collards, Brussels Sprouts, Broccoli and Kale and combined them into a sweet and tender collection - perfect for a salad or stir-fry. Consider throwing in cantaloupe and cucumber, along with your favorite nuts and dried fruit, a little mint and feta cheese. Dress with a light All-Purpose Citrus Dressing.  These greens will also stir-fry well in a base of chopped onion, minced garlic cooked in olive oil before adding the greens and cooking them until they wilt, as in Sautéed Greens with Garlic. Make it a meal by throwing in any can of black or white beans and top with cold feta. 

Sweet Peppers - Roast these in the oven with or without squash for a sweet and savory side dish or topping for your salad. Roasted Summer Squash with Sweet Peppers and Onion is delicious! You might also chop them (removing stems and seeds) and sauté them with onion and garlic before adding your Fall Greens Mix or Malabar Spinach, above. 

Yellow Squash - Roast as above, or seriously, you should make the Yellow Squash Casserole or the lighter version Summer Squash Casserole or Squash Pie. Lighten it up even further with Sautéed Summer Squash with Pepper and Onion, substituting your sweet green peppers for the red ones recommended. 

Protein Shares - Weekly Members

London Broil - Easy and delicious, we recommend Ant Kelly's London Broil Marinade Recipe. Ant is not a typo. Try your Cantaloupe Cucumber salsa on the side!

Pork Bratwurst Links - These links are perfect when cooked in the pan or or Grilled. Last week's pepper relish would be a good topping. The Fall Greens Mix Salad and Roasted Peppers, Onion and Squash (recipes above) would be awesome compliments, as would the squash casserole.  

Enjoy!!
