Speaking of performances, the Bryn Mawr Twilight Concert series begins next week, May 29th, at 7 pm with music from Susan Werner. Pack a farmers' market picnic and enjoy wonderful music outdoors, right in Bryn Mawr. Click here for more information including upcoming performers.
And of course we're celebrating strawberry season - reaching its peak now. Livengood's and Herbal Springs Farmstand both offer the sweetest berries around, with organic berries available as well. Eat them plain, toss 'em in a salad, pair with your favorite cheese, combine with Hail's yogurt for a smoothie, cook them with rhubarb to make a crisp .... the possibilities are endless! See the recipe below for another fun way to use strawberries.
And finally on a more serious note - earlier this week NBC Nightly News aired an important segment reporting a possible link between pesticides and behavior disorders in children. Their recommendation - buy local, in-season produce, and wash it well. You can watch the clip here.
Note: Due to a family emergency, AndyB will not be with us tomorrow, he will be back on May 29th.
Hope to see you on Saturday!
Strawberry Crunch Snack (serves 1)
Adapted from The Top 100 Recipes for a Healthy Lunchbox by Nicola Graimes
1/2 cup oats
1 Tbsp granola (try AndyB's!)
1 Tbsp sunflower seeds (optional)
1Tbsp pumpkin seeds (optional)
1-2 Tbsp honey (try Two Gander Farm's)
7 Tbsp yogurt (try Hails Family Farm)
6 strawberries, sliced
Toast the oats in a skillet for 2 mins turning with a fork. Add the seeds and continue toasting on low heat until golden, about 2 minutes. Add granola and toast 30 seconds longer.
Remove to a bowl and add the honey, mix well. Sizzling sounds are ok!
Layer the yogurt on bottom of a tall clear glass, add berries, and layer granola. Repeat until all ingredients are used. Enjoy!
