A Message From the Owners

Posted by Melissa on August 10, 2012 in Organic Living |

A Message from Ivan and Christine on August 9th, 2012:

“This week, we were forced to make a decision between two wonderful but opposing opportunities for our family and, sadly, Milk and Honey Organics came in second place. We will be suspending all deliveries after Friday, August 10th, 2012.

“We have really enjoyed serving each and every one of you. As a result of our business, we have had the pleasure of meeting some brilliant minds in the GREENville area, some of the most dedicated and hard-working farmers, and enjoyed conversations with many of our hundreds of customers. We thank each and every one of you for your support, feedback, and kindness.

“Our blog with all of the recipes, meal plans, and articles will still remain and we will continue to answer phone calls and emails. If you have any questions, feel free to get in touch with us. We’d love to hear from you!!!
“We hope to see all of you again soon!!!~Christine & Ivan” 

And a side note from Melissa, the M&H blogger:

“I have enjoyed partnering with Milk and Honey Organics (M&H, as I call them) these last fourteen months and am sad to see them suspend deliveries. I will definitely miss the colorful, delicious and nutritious baskets delivered to my door step each week! I wish them the best in their future endeavors!

“I will still be maintaining my healthy living blog (MyJourneyToLean.com) and hope you will follow me over there, as we learn to live healthier lives together. My Journey contains all kinds of recipes, ideas about exercise, personal growth and development, meal plans, and organic tidbits. So, please feel free to join me and enjoy the journey!

Weekly Meal Plan for July 7-13

Posted by Melissa on July 6, 2012 in Meal Plans |

This Week’s Basket Included Bananas, South Carolina Peaches, Red Globe Grapes (caution: watch out for seeds), Tommy Atkins Mangos (not pictured: we got more of something else), Purple Garlic, Ginger, Local Green Cabbage, Hurricane Creek Romaine Lettuce, Globe Eggplant, Russet Potatoes, and Bioway Farms’ Squash and Cucumbers.

This Week’s Meal Plan:

Recipes for this Week’s Meal Plan:

  • Pancake Bar – use your favorite pancake mix or simple recipe and top with anything you like. If you’re adding peaches, bananas, chocolate, etc. to them, pour the batter first and let it cook for a minute on the first side, then top with fillings and cook another minute or so before flipping.
  • Egg Salad – hard boil eggs ahead of time, cool, peel and chop, then add the dressing (1/2 c. mayo, 1-2 tsp. prepared yellow mustard, salt, pepper, dill, a pinch of sugar and a splash of apple cider vinegar whisked together).
  • Grilled Peaches – Spray with a little olive oil before adding to the grill at the last five minutes or so of cooking the pork chops (optional: sprinkle with nutmeg).
  • Sautéed Squash and Onions – Pan fry thin slices in 1 Tbsp. butter with salt and pepper till just soft and slightly translucent.
  • Sautéed Cabbage – Chop into bite size pieces and cook in 1 Tbsp. butter with salt and pepper till soft and slightly caramelized (medium to medium high heat and keep it moving so it doesn’t burn).
  • Sautéed Onions and Peppers – slice into strips and toss in a hot pan with 1 tsp. olive oil till just tender and slightly translucent. Feel free to cook the chicken sausage links right down in the middle of this, if you don’t feel like grilling.
  • Baked Potato – rub with oil, sprinkle with coarse sea salt, and roast on a pan at 450F for 40-50 minutes.
  • Bacon Jam
  • Enchiladas
  • Cheesy Garlic Bread – mince garlic and mix into a stick of melted butter, brush over bread (French loaf or Italian loaf, cut in half, cut side up on pan), sprinkle with shredded cheese, and broil till cheese is golden brown (keep an eye on it).
  • My Favorite Falafel
  • Tzatziki Sauce
  • And the rest are on the Recipes Archive page.

  • Giada’s Spinach Lasagna Rolls
  • Cream Cheese Dill Spread (for Cucumber Sandwiches and/or Veggie Dip): combine 2 blocks of cream cheese with 1/2 c. mayonnaise and 1/2 c. sour cream; add 1 Tbsp. dried dill (or 2 Tbsp. fresh), 1 tsp. garlic powder, 1 tsp. onion powder, 1/4 tsp. salt and 1/8 tsp. pepper. Peel cucumbers and slice thin for sandwiches.
  • Chicken Satay
  • Thai Cucumber Salad (add cooked and chilled rice noodles to salad, if desired, or serve rice noodles hot on the side)
  • “Compost Pizza”
