Sweet Potatoes with Pecans and Goat Cheese

Hey Fellow CSA Members,

The below link is a recipe from Smitten Kitchen, a wonderful and reliable NYC food blog. It made me hungry just reading the recipe! Order some goat cheese from Lewis Waite Farms and you can find local shallots and celery (or use stalks from the pak choi or tatsoi as a sub) and make this yummy looking recipe as a change up from the usual sweet potato preparations.

Notes from Green Thumb Farm

November is here, summer is gone and our Fall crops are doing well.  We will have plenty of greens of all types; broccoli and cauliflowers are just now beginning as are our crop of cabbages - green, red and savoy. We continue to have many types of lettuces and radicchio. We have winter squash - mostly acorn and butternut and we have sweet potatoes and enough to last through to the final deliveries.

Our garlic did not grow out  as expected so there is not much of that. The cloves are small and it was possibly planted too late last fall.
