Final Order for March 5th, 2010

Dear Members,


We look forward to seeing you this afternoon and hope you are as excited about today's selection as we are!  I was sad we couldn't get the yellow cauliflower, but the promotion for it was only early in the week.  The English peas should be delicious whether you put them raw into a salad or cook them up with some butter and garlic!  If you're not sure what to do with the eggplant, try dicing it with the zucchini and add some whole garlic cloves, toss with olive oil and your favorite herbs, then broil.  Delicious!   Martha has a fabulous recipe for the cilantro, an authentic Mexican dip excellent with corn chips.  Look for that posting in the next day or two.  I can't wait to try the red potatoes with some of my left over parsley and a little butter!   Looking for healthier options for you dairy products?  We can get raw dairy (non-pasteurized, non-homogenized) labeled for pet consumption only as per FL law.  If interested email Martha at  


Just a reminder, please donate your clean plastic bags and return your blue bags to us.  We keep them rotating and it helps with the organization to have them on hand.  Also, if you haven't read our letter on member policies, there should be one in your bag today (Redlands and Coral Gables).  Other locations, ask your host for this.  We also need everyone to sign a sheet with your information on it.  If you haven't filled this out already, please do it today at pick up.  And, always, let your host know how you can help us.  When we work together, it makes the job easier for everyone and that is what co-ops are all about!  


Finally, we are looking for a host for Coral Gables.  Pass the word to people you know who have time to be there from 1 to 5 every other Friday and who would appreciate getting FREE organic produce.  We are looking for a reliable person who lives in the Coral Gables area.   


That should wrap things up for this week.  Don't forget to check back for the cilantro dip recipe! 


God Bless,


Cyndi and Martha
