We’re looking forward to offering some seafood specials to our members from Shem Creek Seafood and Catering!
Thank you, Suzi White, for sharing with us!
1 2/3 cups whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
3 teaspoons baking soda
3 1/2 cups pitted dates
1 cup pineapple chunks (fresh or canned in own juice)
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 cup shredded beets
3/4 cup shredded carrots
1/2 cup shredded zucchini
5 Tablespoons cocoa powder
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 to 1 1/2 cups water
2 teaspoons vanilla
Mix flour, baking powder, and baking soda in small bowl and set aside.
I ground the dates through the zucchini in my food processor adding a little water until it was puréed. I stirred in the dry ingredients, cocoa powder, walnuts, vanilla. Add water as needed until the batter is the consistency of brownie batter.
You can bake in a 13 x 9 inch pan for one hour or make 24 cupcakes for 35 minutes (until a toothpick comes out clean) at 350.
This comes out dense like brownies and is good without any frosting. However, the taste improves after a day. It also freezes very well.
I hope this will interest someone!
We’re excited to announce a Travelers Rest Branch!

Not entirely off the produce subject… and having just benefited from this AGAIN, I wanted to post about it.
I don’t always remember to do this, but when I do I’m always surprised! And usually what reminds me is the box on the payment page that says “Coupon Code:___” At that point I open a new tab and type in the name of the website and the words “coupon code.” In my most recent search, I was trying to decide between an $80 meal planning software and a $40 one that might have been just as good, but I was sure they were charging $40 more for some good reason and was sure that at some point I would find out why! Being the bargain hunter that I am, however, I debated for some time. I finally made up my mind to spare no expense for the sake of my fellow rabbits, and opted for the $80 software. Then I saw it… “Coupon Code:___” I clicked on another tab, typed in the site and hooray! I saved $24… which made the cost of the higher priced one much more satisfying!
It just occurred to me that I probably could have saved some money on the $40 software with a coupon code… but I don’t really want to know about it!
These have no produce in them (unless you count the coconut :), but I wanted to share this recipe because they have been a big hit at our home!

Prepare rice, grits, quinoa, wheat berries or whatever grain or starch you want. Once the leaves are cooked lay flat on a cutting board and spoon on filling. Roll them up! I cut out the thickest part of the stem. Taste the first one to test seasoning. Because I did not season the greens when I cooked them, I needed to add a little salt to my filling. I am thinking of doing the next batch with grilled chicken, roasted red peppers and seasoned quinoa. In the summer, large romain leaves make great wraps for chicken salad or grilled chicken with some dressing.”

You have until noon on Monday, March 18th to order! We are still running a $5 off for your first time trial basket! http://www.thenoisyrabbit.com
Did you know you could throw a frozen 5 lb roast in a crock pot before midnight tonight, cook on low for 12 hours and it will be ready for lunch tomorrow! Cover with a couple cans of “cream of” soups (mushroom, chicken, butternut squash :), roasted red pepper… or some of a couple and some seasoning – onion soup mix is most popular). Put your cut up carrots, potatoes and onions in around 8am tomorrow morning so they don’t overcook.
