Hello out there! Not sure if many people read this(post a hello in the comments if you do). I know that it has been neglected for quite a while. Hopefully we can bring a bit of life to this blog. My name is Aaron and I will be posting here starting now and hope to do so somewhat regularly. Likely to be a lot of food related posts and probably some things that are going on inside and out of the store itself.
This post is about C.O.W.S or Co-Op Winter Shares. Basically it is a share of organic produce throughout the winter months when CSA's are not running and the farmers market is not regularly happening. If you are interested in the program contact email Carrie at firstname.lastname@example.org for details. The program is only a few shares in but the produce so far has been great. Pictured is stuffed acorn squash with white bean gravy. The squash, swiss chard and celery are all from the last share. Most of my other ingredients were also purchased at the co-op. Great northern beans, Earth Balance margarine, flour, onion, spices, actually the only item purchased elsewhere was the bag of stuffing. Yeah, I didn't make my own stuffing. I'll add that to my long list of things to make from scratch.
