Happy & Healthy

As we greet June, we all have our fingers crossed for a warmer (and sunnier!) month ahead, don’t we? But despite any lingering June gloom, this week’s box at least is off to a bright and happy start with such favorites as rich and buttery King salmon, locally foraged Morel mushrooms, Pain au Levain bread and creamy chevre from Lost Peacock Farm. In addition to our farm-fresh eggs and garden herbs, this week’s lineup also awaits with such produce all-stars as asparagus, red spring onions and a beautiful mix of salad greens. Enjoy!

Here are a few recipe ideas for the week:

Morel Mushroom & Asparagus Eggs Benedict
Served over toasted bread, this eggs Benedict is truly stunning.

Asparagus with Salt & Pepper Whipped Cream
