What’s in the share/Recipes – 11/28 + 29

Hi members, I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We are very grateful to have you all in our lives and as members this season. You are a very important part of the local food system and support the farmers we work with. I’m sure you don’t want to hear about more food, but maybe as Tuesday and Wednesday rolls around, you will be more ready. Recipes will follow, I just wanted to get this preview out so you can plan. Remember this list is subject to change. I will do my best to let you know of any changes.

And we will be taking orders for Christmas Trees and Wreaths! I’ll have info on pricing hopefully up on the website soon along with delivery availability, Mark is still working that out with our tree farmer, Gerald Jones. They are spray free Frasier Firs, very beautiful and fragrant, and well balanced.
