November 23, 2015 Gratefulness

Most of us miss out on life’s beg prizes.  The Pulitzer.  The Nobel.  Oscars.  Tony.  Emmys.  But we’re all eligible for life’s small pleasures.  A pat on the back.  A kiss behind the ear.  A four-pound bass.  A full moon.  An empty parking space.  A crackling fire.  A great meal.  A glorious sunset.  Hot soup.  Cold beer.  Don’t fret about copping life’s grand awards.  Enjoy its tiny delights.  There are plenty for all of us.
-Wall Street Journal, about 1988
Dear Friends,
     First thing is to remind everyone of this week’s changes to your delivery day.  Wednesday shareholders will remain the same and although it’s not quite ‘fair’ to Thursday people, your delivery day will be Tuesday.  We figure at least half of you will not be thrown off schedule.  We will have the same arrangement for the week of the 23rd of December but will be back on schedule for the next week.  I’ll remind everyone again because if you’re anything like us with shortened days and holidays, time gets even more compressed!
You’re ingredients for the week are with Thanksgiving in mind.  Don’t be put off by the cranberries.  There’s nothing easier then putting into a medium pan, add some water or orange juice, a little sweetener and lightly season with cinnamon or nutmeg to taste.  You can get more elaborate, but this way is fresh, a little sweet with a tanginess.  It only takes about 12 minutes for the berries to cook.  You could also make into a salad or relish.
As we’re heading into our holiday season and some of you will be traveling, please remember the farm continues on with it’s cycles of planting and harvesting.  Your continued support of our production is valued and we’ll be here when you come back.  Our local military families benefit from your delivery donations and it helps with securing the security of the farm.
So enjoy your items in good health and happy cooking.
Thursday deliveries will arrive on Tuesday this week.
