Hello, fellow sharemembers!

Hi, my name is Brittney and my husband (Sal) and I are Wealth Underground sharemembers. We live just across the river in St. Johns in a Craftsman-style bungalow with a view of the St. Johns Bridge that we've been fixing up since the day we moved in. You can learn more about us and our house on our website, The Hallway. We first learned about Wealth Underground from last year's St. Johns Farmers' Market and we're big fans. We feel very fortunate to live where we live and to have an opportunity like this one, to support wonderful local agriculture that's committed to the same values we are.

Sal's the chef in the family (literally), so we've been enjoying some amazing creations using our fresh produce since the share started a few weeks ago. And when we start to get a little behind on using things up and another Tuesday is looming, there's always stir fry to save the day.

I pack bento* lunches to take to work, and as you might imagine, all the delicious produce we've been getting in our canvas bag each week has made each lunch a special treat. Thursday's bento was a particularly delicious salad -- it included beets, spring onion, and green and red leaf lettuce from this week's share and a radish from last week's:
  • green & red leaf lettuces lining the box
  • herb roasted chicken breast
  • julienned carrots
  • beets roasted with spring onion and a bit of olive oil and sea salt
  • radish "flower"
  • sunflower seeds
  • homemade sweet vinaigrette

Sal always says the secret of good cooking is good ingredients...we certainly have that from Wealth Underground, don't we?

*(Bento, if you don't know, is a Japanese-inspired style of packed meals. Not only is it nutritious, it's great fun, too! And addictive...I highly recommend it.) And if there's anyone out there who does bento, I'd love to hear from you!
