Notes on the box.  

This will be the last peppers of the season!  cold temps are coming and these beauties will be knocked out.  
Brussel Sprouts are coming again next week.  

Cosmic Wheel Creamery Cheese Shares.

Some lovely fresh Whole Milk Ricotta.  Perfect time for butternut squash lasagna.  Or some ricotta and honey for breakfast.  
And the first First Snow of the fall! Our camembert style cheese that I can only make during cooler temperatures.  It is about half ripe with the center still being firm.  You should let it come to room temp before eating for maximum deliciousness.  If you want it to get more ripe and oozy, just leave it in your fridge in its ripening paper for another week or two.  

Recipes.

Roasted Cauliflower and Ricotta Grandma Pie. Sounds delicious and has the best name.  

Beet and Ricotta Gnocci in case you are looking for a weekend project

Butternut Squash and Sage Lasagna

Butternut Squash Carmalized Onion and Spinach Lasagna. in case you can't decide what kind of lasagna to make.

On the Farm.

The cold weather has all the farmers in the area including us scrambling to get things into places where they won't freeze and get all the crops harvested that we can.  We are hoping that the cold weather doesn't stop the growth of the romanesco in its tracks.  It's so close and we were hoping to get it into the last boxes.  Frosty fingers crossed!
