Serving Suggestions: 10/3/17

Hi folks!  We had a gorgeous share today – again with more beautiful red peppers.  Shana put those peppers to use right away:

I  saved mine and roasted them today. I know this is not the most exciting, unique thing to do with peppers but they were absolutely sweet and delicious! I use them on toasted bread for a quick bite, on homemade pizza, salads or with tahini for a snack!

Looking for other uses for roasted peppers?  Check out this page with 20 ways to use roasted peppers – most don’t even need a recipe!  Bob made a shortcut shepherd’s pie tonight using CSA potatoes:

On Sunday’s I like to use my slow cooker while I watch football and this week made a simple beef stew.  I saved the leftovers and tonight used the leftover stew, a pound of ground pork from Griggstown Farm and CSA potatoes/chives to make a weeknight shepherd’s pie.  It was so good.  Possibly the best weeknight meal I’ve had in awhile.  It’s always fun to use leftovers in creative ways!  If you want to make a shepherd’s pie from scratch, use Alton Brown’s recipe, and also use up your CSA onion/garlic/carrot/chive.
