Wednesday Specials

Pesto Caprese Panini

Curried Lentil and Cauliflower Soup
(vegan) and Sausage Kale Soup.

Michael and I went out to Sherwood Farm to pick up our first goodies from the CSA - a quart of fresh, damp from the rain strawberries! We ate the whole thing before we even got back to the cafe. The farm was especially verdant is the cool afternoon drizzle. What a beautiful place - the creek, meadows, freshly turned soil and gorgeous trees are the very definition of bucolic.

But there is a scoundrel afoot! More than two dozen chickens have gone missing. Chicken thief! One of the things about CSA membership is you share both the bounty and the loss, so there goes my egg allotment. Happily, I have an unlimited supply of great, locally produced eggs delivered weekly from Springfield Farm, but I'm disappointed for the other CSA members who will have a much more limited access to eggs.
