Meal 1: Sweet Corn Fritters, Green Salad, Sauteed Broccoli.
·     Turn-out the corn base into a mixing bowl.  Season with salt and add about 1T water per share to the base.  Stir, and crush some kernels with the spoon.  Add a little flour and more water VERY gradually if necessary to make a lightly flowing but very coarsely textured ( because of the corn) batter of the mix.
·     Spoon dollops of batter into hot fat in a frying pan and cook about 2 minutes per side to get a nice golden brown. Reserve on paper towels and proceed in batches.
·     Heat the bacon/ tomatoes in a little oil. When sizzling add the shallots and cook about 2 minutes until softened and fragrant.  Increase the heat and add the broccoli.  Toss to heat through.  Season with S and P. Serve.
·     Dress the salad.

·     Toss the cauliflower in a saute pan with a little olive oil if necessary.  Season with salt and pepper, which we omitted, and transfer to a serving plate.

·     Dress the salad.

Meal 2: Sweet Corn Tamales, Pinto Bean-Corn Salad, Latin Cole Slaw

·        Warm the tamales.  A microwave works great.  You can also steam them for 5-8 minutes in a steamer basket.  Also, and what I do, is to pan fry them in a generous helping of fat ( butter is great ) in a non stick pan.  About 2 minutes per side to brown them nicely.  Out of this world with a little yogurt and chopped tomato.
·        Serve the bean salad at room temp or you can heat it in the skillet - yum!

Cauliflower Fougasse and Stuffed Napa Cabbage


Meal 1: Fougasse of Cauliflower, Roasted Red Pepper, and Chevre, Summercrisp and Frissee Salad, Giardiniera.
·     Warm the fougasse on a cookie sheet in the oven at 350° for 10 -15 minutes to just warm through and crisp up a little bit.
·     The Giardiniera is a live, fermented pickle.  Serve it chilled.  Reserve the brine to use in a salad dressing, or drink as a probiotic or simply discard.   I prefer this pickle fiery, but this batch is mild.  Add red pepper flakes if you like it hot too.
·     Dress the salad.

Meal 2: Stuffed Napa Cabbage, Stir-Fried Cauliflower "Rice", Cucumber and Tofu Salad  
·        Warm the cabbage slightly in a microwave first.  Add a drop of water to the dish to expedite the process.  Finish by warming at 325° for 10 - 20 minutes, depending on share size, in the oven.  Alternately you could warm these in a steamer for 5-8 minutes.
·        Heat some oil in a saute pan until very hot.  Add the shredded vegetables and stir fry for a couple of minutes.  The cauliflower pieces should brown a bit and cook through.  2-4 minutes should do it.  Larger shares might want to break the task into two batches to get a good hot stir fry on the vegetables.  Season with a little salt or soy sauce.  Garnish with a little extra sesame oil if you have it.

·        Serve the cuke salad at room temp.
