No Mamas at the Saturday Market This Week!

Hi everyone! This is just a quick note to let you all know that we will not be at the Saturday Market this week. That's tomorrow! Oh my!

To repeat: 

No Macro Mamas tomorrow, September 16 at the Ithaca Farmers Market.

We'll miss you! But we'll be back next week with more delicious, nourishing goodies. See you then!

Autumn

Autumn

Autumn chill, a few frosty mornings, dusk deepening faster than before. Summer is quickly excusing itself and stepping out the door. That's okay -- fall is here. We're not quite ready for Pumpkin Spice Everything, and we're not rushing that, but the season's first apples and pears spark excitement nonetheless.

Our hearts are heavy, watching this wind and rain, a dim echo of the wind and rain wreaking havoc in Southeast Asia, in the Caribbean, on the Gulf Coast of Texas. Watching smoke billowing from Northwestern mountainsides. Watching children of immigrants lose the basic protections afforded them by DACA.

It's a lot to take in. A lot of suffering. A lot of pain and fear. Homes and sacred places devastated. Family, friends, humans, animals in grave danger. It's heavy.

I know it doesn't have much directly to do with our food. I know nobody likes unsolicited advice. Maybe I should stick to Rice and Beans. But we could all use a reminder:

Be tender and kind. Nourish each other. Love, fiercely, at all costs.

Thank you for being part of our circle.

A hearty welcome // Menu for Saturday, August 26, 2017

Today we bid a hearty welcome to students who have returned to Ithaca, or are arriving for the first time. This cool weather also reminds us that we can look forward to apples, persimmons, raspberries, sweet winter squash, and the other rich flavors of fall -- before we know it!

In the kitchen this week, we played with Shiso, an herb used in traditional Japanese and macrobiotic cooking. Shiso is usually pickled in salt and used as a condiment, and to be sure we're trying our hands at that. But we've also found that it makes an exquisite and unusual addition to lemonade. Try it and enjoy!

Peach season is in full swing, so of course -- peach pie! And with the season's blueberries dwindling -- blueberry coffee cake! And blueberry blondies! Our dessert display for the market is overflowing with delicious and nutritious goodness. 

As always, we thank our farmers and providers!

Rice and Beanly Yours,

The Macro Mamas
