Hello all I hope that you are enjoying the bright sunshine that this week has brought. This will be the last week that you will see Amanda in the Waverley Church parking lot.  She is heading out to Toronto for some training for a new career next week.  Be sure to give her a big hug and smile because next week you'll be stuck with ME during your CSA pick up! All Shares to receive the following base Lettuce, spray free Herbs, spray free Carrots, organic.  I don't know about you, but I just LOVE our producers local organic carrots.  Even in February, they are sweet and juicy.  When I'm not just eating them raw, I'm currently in love with washing them, slicing them thinly on a mandolin or with a knife, and giving them a quick sautee in sesame oil with some ginger, then sprinkling them with black sesame seeds.  This side dish takes MAX 10 minutes to make, and it is just so delicious. Onions, organic Potatoes, organic.  I'm into oven fries right now.  There are lots of how to's online, and the basics are all the same.  Cut potatoes into french fry shape.  I like to cut potatoes into 4 slices, then cut each of those slices into 4 to 6 fries.  Put the fries in a big bowl.  Add a couple tablespoons oil, add seasoning (I like salt, pepper, tumeric, and smoked paprika), toss to coat the fries.  Lay them on a cookie sheet (use parchment paper if you have), and place in a pre heated oven (convection setting preferred if you have), at 350 degrees.  Use a spatula or egg flipper to turn the fries every 8 minutes until done to your desired crispness. Frozen Haskap, spray free Mixed shares to receive the above base as well as Beef Stew.  With the carrots, potatoes and onions in this week's share, you know that you have everything that you need to make beef stew.  And if you're anything like me, you have a frozen tomato or two kicking around the freezer from the last few deliveries.  There are so many versions of beef stew out there.  From the basic, to the fancy, the general idea is the same.  Thaw your stew meat, brown the beef, add a liquid and seasonings and braise (simmer) the meat until tender, add veg.   The rest is just window dressing.
