Fair Shares Season End

The survey linked below should only take 1-2 minutes to fill out. Please fill out the survey by the end of day February 29 (it's a leap year)!

We hope everyone enjoyed their Mardi Gras 🎭 and Super Bowl 🏈 celebrations, and Happy Valentine’s Day 💝 to all!

If you didn't already get your sweetheart a treat, there's still time, and if your pickup isn't until Thursday, remember it's the thought that counts... 🥰 Say "I love you" with a treat from Fair Shares.

Rice with Mushrooms and Sausage

Rice with Mushrooms and Sausage
This may be the best thing I’ve made in a while! I had lions mane mushrooms, but any mushrooms will work here. I didn't have heavy cream so I used sour cream and quark--it worked beautifully! Don't be afraid to use what you have and sub out ingredients make it vegetarian by leaving out the sausage. Read more

Winter Squash & Lentil Chili

Winter Squash and Lentil Chili
"A recipe is simply someone else’s idea of how to make something."

I live by this quote. When I come up with a recipe for this group or any other recipe I will look at several different recipes and take parts of what I like and incorporate ingredients that I have. I rarely make a recipe as written. I hope you do this too. Swap out what you have in your share or your pantry. Read more

We've heard from a number of members that they don't know how to use these mushrooms, so here is a suggestion that I've tried and enjoyed, and also a link to aubreyskitchen.com, where you'll find a recipe for Vegan (or Vegetarian) Crab Cakes that looks and sounds like a special treat.

Monte Carlo Bars

Monte Carlo Bars
When Lindy told me she made this recipe substituting Marina's Cranberry Chutney and pecans from Fair Shares, I have to admit, I had no idea what Monte Carlo Bars were. My mind went to the cocktail with rye, which sounds fine to me, and also the Monte Cristo sandwich, which is something completely different.
