"In all things of nature there is something of the marvelous" -Aristotle
Tuning into the seasonal change, as gracefully as the leaves fall, it's now time to gather the last of the harvest in preparation for the winter. We've had an abundant season and with that comes a humbling gratitude; Thank you for believing in us and the hard work we promised to fulfill. I hope that eating locally
has nourished your body and lifted your spirit!
With only a few months left of 2016, it's time to reflect on our progress and evaluate where we still need to grow. There is a never ending list of improvements and steadily with strong hearts we will continue to reach new heights. Listening to the rhythm of the earth I trust it will just keep getting better and better. Together we are creating a beautiful community.

BAKED EGGS IN SQUASH RINGS
Ingredients (serves 3-4, depending on the size of your squash):
- 1 carnival or acorn squash, sliced crosswise into 3/4 inch-thick rings, seeds and pulp scraped out
- Olive oil
- 3-4 large eggs (1 per slice of squash)
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Fresh herbs or freshly grated cheese (optional), for serving
Preheat the oven to 425 and line a baking sheet with tinfoil. Spray the baking sheet lightly with cooking spray or coat with a little olive oil. Place the prepared squash rings on the baking sheet, and brush the tops and insides with some olive oil.
Bake the rings for 20 minutes, then flip them over and return the baking sheet to the oven. Have your salt and pepper handy, and prepare the eggs by cracking each one into its own bowl or cup.
Remove the baking sheet from the oven, and slide one egg into the middle of each squash ring. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, and carefully return the pan to the oven. A tiny bit of egg white may ooze out from the edge of the squash rings, but the pan should be hot enough to set the eggs fairly quickly and keep you from losing too much.
Bake for 8-12 more minutes, or until the whites are almost set and the yolks are almost done to your liking. The eggs will continue to cook some after you remove the pan from the oven, so it’s best to take the pan out when they are somewhat underdone.
Use a spatula to carefully transfer the squash & egg rings to plates and serve hot, topped with salt & pepper, herbs, and cheese as desired.
