This is it for Sarah's Eat Local Challenge at OTC Grocery! We've come to the end of the month, which means her last post is up on Will Run for Pasta. What a glorious 30 days it's been together--we've gotten to know each other, we've shared meals, and now we're fellow business owners. This is what the co-op experience is all about. Thank you, Sarah! It brings us joy to share our love of food with you and so many others. Read Sarah's sign-off to the month here.
Our resident co-op blogger Sarah was feeling under the weather this past weekend (feel better Sarah!), but she still managed to give us the lowdown on the most recent CSA share. Whether or not you're a CSAer, take a cue from Sarah and scroll through our blog to learn what's currently in season and ideas for what to cook with our ingredients. If you're not receiving a fall CSA share from us, then come see us at OTC Grocery for organic vegetables and more. You may run into Sarah there! For now, read Sarah's latest installment on Will Run for Pasta.
Sarah takes us back to the joy of last Sunday's member potluck in her recent post on Will Run for Pasta. Describing our meal, she reminds us how time at the table is a particularly important moment of connection and communion, especially when it involves s'mores. We promise there are more of these gatherings ahead, but, in the meantime, come see us at OTC Grocery because we love feeling in community with everyone every day that we're open! Check out what Sarah wrote here.

OTC CSA vegetables, Deck Family Farm pork sausage, Rogue Creamery blue cheese, and Roman Candle Baking Co. bread--Sarah's basket from OTC Grocery for the week sounds amazing.

Harvest, Hoops, and Hilarity
We also had a little fun on Thursday's harvest that I wanted to share with all of you. I've always been fascinated by gnarly, twisted, roots that always seem to look like people in the most awkward of embraces. And, I've always thought about keeping a catalog of the most interesting ones and then making a coffee table book or something out of the images one day. The idea was as simple as that until Karen, Jen, and Dawn suggested that not only should there be pictures of twisty roots, but that they should be paired with pictures of live reenactments. Genius, right? So, here you go, the first in our new series of Our Table root vegetables and our reenacted versions. Enjoy!
Have a great weekend!
Til' next time,
Beautiful December Harvest
