Heart Healthy Organic Produce and Your Weekly Newsletter Update

Happy Monday Mainers!

If you aren’t over the moon about it being Monday…let me tell ya…I’m about to make you REEEEEAALLL HAPPY!

I’ve been doing the happy dance all day since I found out that we are getting ARTICHOKES! Grilled artichokes are one of my favorite things to make (eat) and I really can’t wait. So I decided that I would just send out entire boxes of artichokes to all of you. Who needs variety when you have artichokes? Ok, Ok, I’m kidding:)

Sunset Farm OrganicsThis week we are rockin’ a heart healthy box featuring Spinach from Flying Pond Farm, Arugula from Sunset Farms, and more of those delicious Red Maria Potato’s from Thibodeau Farms. Oh and also, a little pug dog told me that he stole my laptop and ordered some Portobello Mushrooms. Darn Dogs;) I guess since he ordered them we will have to grill up some Portobello Pesto Burgers. Check this recipe out!

Ok, my darlings, there is more! Log into your accounts and check it out! Flip, switch, swap, and sub and enjoy every second of it! Remember, we love to hear what your cooking up and even better…post pics to our facebook! Give us a hug on Yelp! And feel free to send me any questions, suggestions, or even love letters at justpeachy@cascobayorganics.com. I hope you enjoy your menu as much as I enjoyed making it.

 

Be Happy,

Celebrate Earth Day at Casco Bay Organics Spring Dug Carrots

Happy Earth Day Mainers!

I hope this email finds you all in great spirits! I, for one, am pretty darn excited about this beautiful weather we have been having. You know, I’ve been an east coaster my entire life and I still get blown away every. single. year. I can never believe how cold it gets, or how long it takes for spring to get here, and man…what about how hot it gets in the summer?! Still surprised. Every time. And I like getting excited about surprised just like you (hopefully) get excited about this week’s menu! So here’s the breakdown:

*BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND* we have some delicious spring dug carrots from that cutie patootie Farmer Ben over at Life Force Farm, Russet Potato’s from our pals at Nature’s Circle, and our greens are coming to us from Flying Pond Farm in Vienna, ME. Psssssttt…we also have CRIMINI MUSHROOMS!!! Yahoo! There is more, so log into your accounts and check it out. Flip, switch, swap, and sub and get psyched! Don’t be shy about telling us what you’re cooking up these days. Visit us on facebook! Tell us you love us on Yelp! Send me questions, suggestions, or youtube videos at justpeachy@cascobayorganics.com. Enjoy your menus, my friends. I enjoyed making it.

Newsletter Update- Freedom Farm and Patriot Day

Happy Monday Mainers!

What’s today? Today is Patriot’s Day…today is tax day…today is the DAY YOU GET YOUR PRODUCE MENU!

Today also happens to have a black cloud looming over our fruits and veggies. The tragic events that took place in Boston this afternoon have sullied my normal super pumped up self. Holy Cow!!Did you know I am from The Commonwealth? Did you know Maine used to be part of Massachusetts? Grrrrr…in such a rough and sad world we should probably take more than a minute to appreciate how grateful we are for what we have and who we love (insert lots of moments of silence here).

Now let me tell you what you have…in your box…this week! We are featuring Spring Dug Parsnips from Freedom Farm (FARM CRUSH OF THE WEEK), delicious Mizuna Lettuce from our friends over at Sunset Farms, and Copra Onions from Nature’s Circle. But that’s not all. Go log in and see what you got. Flip, switch,swap, sub…make it YOUR box.

But, hey…do me a favor. Hug your family and friends tonight…and ALWAYS.

Be Happy,

Jillian
