Farm Share Week 16: Sept 20-22, 2017

It’s week 16 of the farm share season-apples are ready at many orchards in my area making it prime time for apple picking which also means fall is right around the corner! Already the leafs are changing colors and falling to the ground-a sure tell sign that here in Canada the nip in the mornings are coming shortly.  Which also means soon we will have pumpkins and squash and Thanksgiving (somehow its only 3 weeks away roughly).  But no more talk about fall-we’ve had some beautiful weather recently giving us all the last bit of summer weather before getting ready to have hot apple cider and pumpkin pie.

This week I’m sharing a site that has 15 ways to cook your tomatillo’s! If your anything like me they have begun to accumulate in your fridge, though I did the other week cut them up and added them with tomatoes for tacos.   They can be blended up for sauces, sauteed and eaten raw.
Here is the link to a few different ideas how to use them 15 ways to use your tomatillo’s. 

Jennifer is always so on top of taking pictures of her meals.  I always forget! Here is some lovely things she cooked up for dinner-including some bok choy-which is one of my favorites-with a little ginger and maple syrup.

About the Author

StephanieMy name is Stephanie Hofman and this is my 5th year with the farm share program. 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 towards a more healthy lifestyle.I try and 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 a few 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 →
