Some of the strawberries that live in our refrigerator!
At Milk Bar we know a good snack when we see one! At any given day in our busy office one may find a veritable smorgasbord of potential new treats laid upon our big meeting table for tasting like a Parthenon offering to the statue of Athena. A day’s work is all too often punctuated by the remnants of these delicious creations some of which find their way to our menu while others remain a happy memory in our collective palate perhaps to be resurrected by a culinary epiphany at some future date. If one is not careful, however, by end of day one may find he has quietly amassed a mountain of plates with the evidence of the milky, sugary goodness staring him in the face reminding him he’s substituted chocolate malt for a midday meal once again. Not a bad gig for any burgeoning snackmeister, I must say.
Around the Milk Bar office our CSA share has given us a few new daytime snack options. We store our share in the office refrigerator where most mornings members of our Press team can be found stirring a handful of blueberries and strawberries into their yogurt or oatmeal. Weekly meetings, once dominated by a spread of goodies that would make Marie Antoinette blush, now share the stage with snap peas and berry bowls. Though our tastings remain sacred we turn to our CSA share for much needed midday sustenance and each member of our team is free to visit the fridge at his or her delight. Personally, I’m partial to a cornflake-strawberry-blueberry admixture – great for snacking with multiple pencils tucked behind your ears and an inbox bursting at the digital seams.
