Welcome to Week 34, Thanksgiving Week!

Pickups are Monday or Tuesday, the 20th or 21st at Fair Shares (your choice, no need to let us know). UCity and Kirkwood pickups are on Tuesday. Regular pickup times at all locations.
Delivered share members received a double share yesterday, so we will skip delivery Thanksgiving week.

We've had members request early notification of the lists for next week, and we are trying to get the store updated so that everyone can place orders over the weekend. We have limited produce availability for next week because of the early schedule, but we are hoping some farmers might bring a us a few items after the markets this weekend. Honestly, we don't know what we will have or how much, and we'll substitute as needed for items in the shares or make prouce tradable if we don't have enough.

Volunteer
We will be short our regular help next week, and we have turkey delivery tomorrow, which has been rescheduled for late afternoon. We have potatoes and carrots several other things to weigh, and much food to organize and allocate. Monday and Tuesday afternoons we'll have lots of trades and orders to pull. We've been saying "Yes, please!" to everyone who has volunteered to help, but we could really use a reminder of who has offered to help at what time on which day or days. So please, if you didn't just email a note about it last night, email with the subject volunteer to let us know when you are available to help so we can be sure to have specific jobs ready for everyone and prevent an abundance of chaos. Thank you! 



Special note on orders this week:

Because we are allowing FS pickup members to come Monday or Tuesday, we will not close the store between the two days, but we will pull store orders at noon on Monday so that we have time to gather and organize everything. This means any orders placed after noon will not be filled until Tuesday at noon. This means any items available in the store may no longer be available because they could be purchased during Monday's pickups. Therefore, we recommend everyone order by noon on Monday. We will pull all store orders on a first come, first served basis.

Keeping the store inventory accurate is challenging with our schedule, so we may overestimate availability so that it doesn't falsely show that we are out. Please understand that we may send a choice, or notify you by email that we need you to give us a second choice.

Make trades by logging into your account here: https://csa.farmigo.com/account/fairsharesccsa/combinedcsa

If you email your order, be sure to include your account name--which is your last name and pickup group, so we know where to send the food.

Winter squash is such an easy-going, versatile ingredient, amenable to an amazing array of flavor profiles and cuisines. Sometimes it's difficult to decide whether to go Thai curry or Indian curry, Italian with brown-butter sage, or just make a simple rustic, all-American soup. This soup uses chevre, mushrooms and apple syrup, and is one of those recipes in which the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.Read more

Use celery root in similar preparations as potatoes--in soups, root veggie roasts, pan-fried, or boiled and mashed, as in this recipe. If the stalks are attached, freeze them in a zip-lock (along with the cleaned peels) to add to stocks.Read more

Roasting chestnuts is easy, but the preparation can seem laborious if you aren't in love with chestnuts like I am, or if you don't use the right tool, or if you haven't done it numerous times. It's worth it, I asure, and I would be happy to give a demonstration if you pick up at the Mothership.Read more
