Some more meal ideas...

I love taking pictures of food we made using ingredients from the farm.

 This is a mango, banana, soy milk, and orange juice smoothie with some kale added in to give it that green colour and a vitamin boost. You could do that with any combination of fruits or yogurt you like. Even add in a sweetener like honey or maple syrup.
  Parboiled new red potatoes cut in halves then fried with spices and oil is a great side dish. Beet greens, with a big or small beet attached are delicious boiled whole with some salt and butter or margarine on top. Greens like bok choy, kale, swiss chard mixed with onions, snow peas, green onion fried with oils and spices are great as well. Can you tell we like to fry things?

Island Taylored Meats preservative-free sausages on a whole grain bun with a salad of mixed lettuces, cucumber, and tomato. Also on the side is a mix of garlic scapes, onion, kale, joi choi, sweet red Italian braising pepper, and spices.
