Here are the share items for this week:

Produce Share:


Brussels sprouts
^Add a squeeze of fresh lemon juice for some tang!




Besides supplying good amounts of protein, phosphorus, and zinc, beet greens are also a great source of fiber. Packed with antioxidants, they’re high in vitamin B6, magnesium, potassium, copper, and manganese, and low in fat and cholesterol.”
^We made this for supper a few weeks ago and it is SO good!


^Two different apple and cabbage slaw recipes. Delicious served alone, or use to top your BBQ sandwich! I like to add pumpkin seeds if serving as a side dish.

Butternut Squash

Spaghetti Squash
^Vegan recipe! Substitute tofu and vegan cheeses for real cheeses if you limit your soy intake.



Shiitake mushrooms

And a recipe idea for all your Thanksgiving leftovers! Pot pie!


One Whole Trout

Two Trout Fillets

Puff’s BBQ
^Make BBQ sandwiches or tacos and top with the cabbage and apple slaw above!
