What to Do With Your Share---Week 9

The last week have been a real rollercoaster of weather. The wet, cool holiday weekend did provide some physical relief, but the blast furnace was turned back on today. It is nice to be enjoying the fruits of summer as a payoff for the day.

As an avid customer of Companionship Bread, we find many ways to enjoy John's hand crafted and cultured breads. Many of his breads are leavened with wild ferments. This natural yeast really gives the bread flavor, and helps is stand up well to hearty recipes.

This year's red onions: Cabernet, Tropea and Rosa di Milano

Sloppy Joes are the perfect meal to incorporate those loaf ends and other slices. We find ourselves making them often this time of year. It is a great way to enjoy your Parker Farms ground beef or pork. Top it off with grated cheese from your cheese share and a garnish of herb, and you have a true local treat.

Sloppy Joes

2 onions, diced
2 peppers, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tsp salt
1 summer squash or eggplant, chopped
2 tbsp fresh summer savory
1 lb ground meat
1 quart tomato sauce
2 tbsp olive oil
sliced and toasted bread

  • In a large sauce pan sauté the onions, pepper, garlic, salt and olive oil over medium high heat for 3 minutes
  • Add squash and summer savory, cook 5 minutes
  • Push the vegetables to one side and add the meat, brown the meat over high heat
  • Once the meat is browned form a well in the center of the saucepan and add a cup of tomato sauce
  • Once the sauce thickens add another cup, repeat until all sauce has been added to the pan and thickened
  • Pour over bread and top with garnish of grated or crumbled cheese and fresh herb
