Baked Pears!

I love simplicity. I think a small part of all of us crave it. One of the beautiful things about Brewers is that we make it simple. Your food comes straight to your door. 🙂

Here is a recipe from one of you, our spectacular customers, that celebrates the simplicity of food.

Baked Pears: Peel and halve pears, top each with dab of butter, chopped walnuts, cinnamon, natural sugar and spritz w/lemon. Bake a short time at 350 til butter melts and they look irrestible. Enjoy! Marros

Fried Rice Pilaf

Thank you Martha S. for submitting this recipe. You have earned rockstar status AND a free small box of produce.

Lucinda’s notes: I don’t have or use vegetable oil, so I used butter (everything is better with butter). I also think that olive oil would be great with this. Furthermore, the produce I didn’t have (like green onions) I just didn’t use. I also replaced the soy sauce with Bragg’s Amino acids (the msg in the soy sauce makes myself and my little Fiona just a tad bit crazy). Yum Yum.

Fried Rice Pilaf. (makes 3-4 servings)
1 cup jasmine rice (or brown rice)
1/4 cup vegetable oil
4 eggs beaten
Salt and pepper
3 scallions thinly sliced, white and green
1 large red bell pepper
1 zucchini chopped
1 can white beans
1 cup chopped carrots
1 tsp ground cumin
2 tbsp soy sauce
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
Chopped garlic to taste
1. Cook the rice according to package instructions
2. Meanwhile in a nonstick pan heat 1tbs olive oil over medium heat.  Add the eggs, season with salt and pepper and cook.  Transfer to a cutting board and let cool, then chop
3. In the same pan heat more olive oil and add scallions, garlic, pepper and zucchini.  Cook for one minute then add the carrots and beans and cook until heated through.  Transfer to a bowl.
4. In the same pan heat more oil and add cumin and stir in cooked rice.  Spread out to a thin layer and let cook until it forms a crust.  Then add all your cooked ingredients and soy sauce and cook until heated through.  Enjoy!

Flowers for you!

Hey there Brewers Organics’ Foodies.

If you got a box on Wednesday, then you got edible flowers. (From the heart for Valentine’s day. Now, you can’t say you didn’t get flowers!!! ) Wondering what to do with them now?

I add them to water and freeze to make pretty ice cubes. However, I saw this idea: http://www.kitchencaravan.com/content/floral-homemade-pasta (making them into pasta) and loved it!!

Enjoy!

Cheers and Happy Eats!

FUN THINGS!

Valentine’s day, as you know, is Tuesday. Yay! Hearts and flowers, and expressions of love. My daughter, Fiona, and I have had a blast getting ready for this ooey gooey, lovey dovey, holiday. She has been making cards for her classmates that say “you are the apple of my eye” and tying them to the stems of apples with ribbons. I have also been working on a special gift – for all of you!  Check your box on Wednesday- I hope you love them. I am really bad at keeping secrets, so please don’t ask me any questions. 😉 Check facebook or our blog after your delivery to know what to do with your special, from the heart, gift. 🙂

ITEM OF THE WEEK!

I just want you all to know that you are amazing! It may not seem like a big deal, leaving out a toothbrush or a bar of soap, but to those without, it means a lot. One act of kindness, does a world of good.

This week “item of the week” is shampoo. Got some to donate?  Leave it in your cooler and when we drop off your produce we will pick it up. We will send it over to the Hope House to be distributed to homeless.
RECIPES!

Cooking something up in your kitchen that I should attempt to replicate or be jealous of? Shoot the recipe over to me, and if we feature it on our blog we’ll give you Rockstar status AND a free small box of produce.

CELERY STALKING!

We invite you to celery stalk us on our blog (www.brewersorganics.com/blog). If you aren’t getting an order but you want to stay up to date on this newsletter, you can find it there. And if the pesky little thing we call weather causes drama in the fields, and we have to make change to the contents of the boxes, you can read about it on the blog.

COOLERS!

If you aren’t going to be home during the day on Wednesday, don’t worry, even if there are flurries.   Just leave a cooler out for us to put your produce into. When you get home, you will have organic deliciousnes on your door step.

DELIVERY INSTRUCTIONS:

Oh, Brewers Organics Foodies. You are the apples of my eye, you make me smile until my face hurts, I bless your pea pickin hearts. With that said: If we need to swim a moat, slay a dragon, knock down castle walls, and save a princess to get you your delivery, we will do our best to make that happen. However, if you give us a heads up we can make sure to put on our hero gear on your delivery day. So please- update your delivery instructions if you live behind iron gates, have a doorman, a front desk, entrance is hard to find, we need a code to get into your building, or have a rooster that might chase us.



Cheers and Happy Organic Eats!

DELIVERY TIMES!

I want to personally thank all of you for your patience over the past week with our delivery times. Our delivery times range from 7 am to 8 p.m. but generally we do like to have them all done by 5:00 p.m. I know that wasn’t neccesarily the case for all of you this past week, and again I truly appreciated your patience. This week we have made a few changes so everyone should have their order by 5 on Wednesdays. Superstars, that is what you are!

SO…WHERE YA FROM???

It’s a question I got a lot this week, and not about me personally. Y’all want to know where your produce comes from. yay! I love people that are interested in their food and where it comes from. I now have the origins of the produce in your box listed on the website for your review. You will see a state or country listed after each item. Want to know even more? Shoot me an email, I love talking food. Oh, and the absolute middle of nowhere, a town of 600. That is where I was born and raised. You know, just in case you were asking. 😉



ITEM OF THE WEEK!

Thank you all that donated socks last week. I dropped off your donations yesterday and they were soooo grateful. Also, thanks to your patronage, we were able to drop off some produce as well. The kids loved the blood oranges. Check out our facebook page for a picture of Jenny, the youth director of Hope House. To me, she was a ray of sunshine in a dark place. She is so dedicated to helping the homeless and underprivileged children of  Milwaukee.

This week “item of the week” is soap. Got some to donate?  Leave it in your cooler and when we drop off your produce we will pick it up. We will send it over to the Hope House to be distributed to the homeless.
