"Taste Makers"

"Taste Makers"

ANOTHER book review, Erin? Two weeks in a row?

Yes. Another book review because I am still 8 year old me, plowing through books in the summer so I can win silly posters from the Scholastic Book Club or personal pan pizzas from Pizza Hut. I'm rather a fast reader so there were a few summers in the early 90's where I was basically a personal pan pizza.

I digress. The book "Taste Makers: Seven Immigrant Women who Revolutionized Food In America" is a delight.

A little help for our friends

A little help for our friends

Historic flooding of the Connecticut River and others has left local farmers reeling and caused millions of dollars in damages in the state.

Fields with late adolescent corn, or hay ready to be rolled are under lakes of muddy water, unrecoverable and unsellable.

Waste not, want not.

Waste not, want not.

Part of the core mission of Family Dinner is to eliminate waste. Did you know that between 30-40% of food goes to waste each year in the US? It's a shocking statistic.

From our side we're trying to use technology and data to eliminate waste in the food supply chain - all of YOU are a part of that effort and we appreciate you support. At Family Dinner each week we order to meet near exact demand, we keep little inventory and almost nothing goes to waste.

Fruit shares are back

The Summer Solstice just passed us and despite the rain has us feeling as bright and cheery as kittens (whatever that means).

Have you lost your favorite vegetable?

Boy, oh boy do we love a produce based pun around here. We have the humor of a 70 year old dude in a Kenny Loggins t-shirt who lives off Coors Banquets and Werther's Originals** and we won't say sorry for it.

Tourist Season

Tourist Season

Howdy-

Joe here. In addition to GM-ing the heck out of Family Dinner, I've been playing in bands for... geez... 30-odd years? And back on May 19th, my current one, Gozu, hit the road for a few weeks to play a bunch of shows throughout the US. 22 days of driving ~7,500 miles across 24 states. We saw dozens of faces. And we rocked some of them. (Bon Jovi, anyone?)

All GUSSied up.

All GUSSied up.

We're so excited to have asparagus back in the shares this week. The season is short so we love to it as much play time as possible.

There are so many ways to enjoy this, in pasta, on a tarte, plain with butter - just don't over cook it. It goes from the perfectly crisp spear to a mushy wand in the time it takes to say "what the hell is a Vanderpump rules?". So take your time with it, be delicate and let all the summery deliciousness be the star of your plates.

Are you ready for some football....

We have long been Superfans of the Boston Renegades, the professional women's tackle football team.  These women are pure grit, and pure inspiration.  They also, no big deal, are four time National champions.

A coupla smootches....

A coupla smootches....

People have long been asking about treats and food for the the #1 person in their lives, their dogs.

This week our pals at Brookford Farm heroically answered this call. They are making raw chicken and carrot patties for your pooches to treat them like the royalty they are. Bella, pictured, can vouch for them. Two paws up.

Member Highlight

Meet Amy and Bruce Rogers, two of the G.O.A.Ts of Family Dinner. Amy and Bruce have been with us since the beginning, supporting and encouraging us, providing feedback and helping us grow.
This week marks their 300th order. Honestly when I saw that number, quite by accident, I teared up a little (I think someone must have been mincing onions nearby). Though we're thrilled to call them friends now, we didn't know them when they started with Family Dinner, and they have stuck with us providing incredible support along the way.

Mom's favorites

Mom's favorites

Joe and I asked our mother's, both dyed in the wool foodies and excellent cooks, what some of their favorites are. Just hearing back from them harkened back to childhood, a family table and the ability to eat absurd amounts of food without gaining weight. Here are what these two legends have to say:
