Recipe of the Week
The timing couldn't be more perfect. Last night's dinner found me using my very last frozen pesto from last year. I planted several large pots of our own organically grown basil just last week, and because we've had such great weather, it's ready to harvest already! It looks like I'll be processing a batch or two this weekend. I'll use some right away, and freeze at least half to use later on. Last night I tossed it with some stir-fried veggies, bowties and shrimp.
The pesto recipe and many others can be found in the Bartlett's Farm Cookbook.

Try a Cheese Sampler!
Cheese Platter
We're good at making group efforts here. Leah Mojer has brought in some great new selections of cheese for you, and Mj had the idea of presenting a collection of them on a tasting platter. That way, you can try out a few cheeses and not have purchase a whole block of any particular variety. We've tossed on a few crostini, some grapes and a sampling of cranberry honey to round out the platter.
