Are you looking for a fun family event this weekend that is FREE?  Munnell Run Farm Day in Mercer is Sunday 11-4.  There will be children's activities, a quilt show, local crafters and artisans, farm market, wagon rides, live music, and more.  Did I mention it's FREE?  Unless you want to purchase items from local vendors or buy lunch to support local nonprofits.  They ask that you bring a nonperishable item to give to the Community Food Warehouse.  I will be there all day sharing info about our cooperative and CSA, and I will have a few items for sale on our table.  Stop by and say "hi" if you are there.

We need your help if you live in the Mercer County area.  Next Wednesday I will not be working, and Heather is still unable to lift boxes to deliver.  We have arranged for CSA delivery to some of our locations, but the people who we were counting on for the remainder of the deliveries have other commitments that they can't get out of.  If anyone is interested in delivering for us for a few hours (for pay), please contact me.  Heather can ride along to show you where to go and what to do, but you would have to drive our delivery van and lift all the boxes.

Recipes

Pickled Beets:  small batch with lower sugar

Roasted Beet Salad with Goat Cheese and Chickpeas

Cocoa Beet Chocolate Chip Muffins:  I understand that beets are a veggie that you either love or hate.  For that reason I tend not to put them in shares very often, and when I do it's more often in Full Shares or Choice.  So if you dislike beets, instead of letting them rot in your fridge or giving them away, disguise them with chocolate.  Beets make baked goods incredibly moist.

Beet Carrot Apple Salad

Garlic Butter Kale Rice

Kale and Apple Salad

Mushroom and Kale Garlic Herb Quinoa (use a healthier fat than the fake butter)

Mexican Caesar Salad

BLT Pasta Salad
