Week #19 — Oct 18 [A week]

Weighing Potatoes....

Despite the slight Fall chill in the air, the night was gorgeous and we were able to hang in the fabulous Woods backyard for distribution. A few favorite Berry share friends stopped by (cuz they missed us!) and it was another great distribution filled with the swapping of Fall recipes and quick cooking tips, toasts, and laughs. Oh yeah, and outrageously gorgeous local produce! Continue reading

Member Diary #18 — Georgie

My full Veggie share: 1 lb Poblano Peppers, 1/2 lb Chilaca Peppers, 1 lb Tomatoes, 1 head of Cabbage, 1 head Red Leaf Lettuce (I took 2 by accident…ahem), 1 bunch Cilantro, 1 Acorn Squash, 1 Butternut Squash, 1 bunch Lemongrass

My Egg share: A dozen nice healthy eggs

My Fruit share: 1 qt. Apple cider, 1 lb Golden Delicious Apples, 1 lb Crispin Apples, 1 lb Empire Apples

Hello! The theme of this week for me was definitely “Everything tastes better with roasted Poblano or Chilaca peppers”- they are both so mild and delicious when roasted on an open flame. I also used the gigantic head of cabbage in quite a few dishes so that was a hero ingredient too. I love cooking with CSA food- everything is always so fresh and tasty. Here are some of the things I made this week from my share. Continue reading

4th Annual Craig Murphey Memorial Fundraiser – 10/16

On October 16, 2010 Craig’s friends and family will gather at a location to be announced for a party commemorating Craig’s life, and to celebrate the joy he brought to everyone who knew him. Craig was known by most for his roaring laugh, contagious smile and outrageous dancing that kept us all entertained. A hummus cookoff, live music, and the yearly raffling off of prizes provided by the community will take place throughout the night. Craig Murphey was a young community organizer and anti-poverty advocate whose life was cut short in a tragic bike accident in 2007. Continue reading
