Farm Share Week 12: Aug 19-22, 2015

Hello from the farm! This is Stephanie again-Jenny was kind enough to take over the blog for a few weeks while I got to spend time bonding with my family upon the birth of our second son, Daniel. I apologize for not having a picture of the farm share box this week-I’ll get one up for the next blog 🙂
Every year I have a hard time figuring out what to do with the tomatillos that come in the farm share box, we don’t eat a lot of salsas which seem to be the primary use for them.  I did however find a unique recipe I’m hoping to try this weekend that actually fries them and you eat them with a dipping sauce.  I figure this recipe would be great for an alternative-if anyone has any great recipes for them please email us with a recipe!
Here is what you can look forward to in this weeks box contents:

About the Author

StephanieMy name is Stephanie Hofman and this is my third year with the farm share program-second doing the blog. I'm in my late 20's and expecting baby #2 in early August. My son Richard Jr-who many of you might have seen if you were able to attend the open house will be 3 in Oct.I am an earth loving hippie-follower of Christ-lover of all people and love to try new things. I am not a blogger outside of zephyr organics-so please keep this in mind as I continue to learn the in's and out's of what it means to create a good blog and to be a good blogger!My family and I do our best to make everything at home from scratch, but we are not fully organic, non-GMO, nor are we dairy free or gluten free. I do my best with what I have and am slowly but surely making changes (I'm very excited about sheep cheese-cheese is a staple that wouldn't end well if I tried to remove from our diet) towards a more healthy lifestyle.I will do my very best to keep the recipes that I share to encompass all diets-some will be desserts, some will be juicing recipes (last year I failed epically at my juicing fast-FYI don't add 'more kale' just to use it up in a recipe) some gluten and dairy free-some vegan and many in between.Most of the items in the box I am familiar with now-but 2 years ago I didn't know what bokchoy was nor had I ever heard of swiss chard-now they are my 2 favourite items to get in my box!I'm a free going spirit who has taught herself most things and love to help others out since I've only become who I am and gotten to where I am in life because of the love and generosity of those who've I've encountered. I've never been very good at spelling nor have I been very computer savvy. Any feedback and suggestions are always welcome.Thank you so much for joining us on this journey towards supporting local farmers and supporting the growing organic food movement. May your box bless you and your family all season long and I look forward to sharing my recipe successes and failures with you.View all posts by Stephanie →
