You might have noticed this fancy little badge in the right-side rail of the blog. Allow us to explain …

It should be fairly obvious by now that we’re pretty in to Meatless Monday around here. [Ahem.]

For the past three years’ worth of Mondays, we’ve taken turns posting a menu item that’s meat-free, and this week Meatless Monday recognized our efforts, adding So Hungry I Could Blog to its list of Bloggers on Board. We couldn’t be more thrilled!

Some facts about MM:

  • Meatless Monday is an international campaign that encourages people to not eat meat on Mondays to improve their health and the health of the planet. — Wikipedia
  • Meatless Monday began in 2003, launched in association with the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. — MeatlessMonday.com
  • Meatless Monday has a global presence and is now active in 29 countries. — MeatlessMonday.com

What it means to be a MM blog:

  • There are more than 130 blogs officially linked up to Meatless Monday at last count.
  • Affiliated Meatless Monday blogs provide a staggering number of meat-free recipes options. We make up a strong network of resources for people who choose to skip meat on Mondays and other days. Explore the other blogs here.

So! On this eve of Thanksgiving, we’re thankful to be MM official. Going forward, we’ll keep sharing our favorite meatless recipes on Mondays, and we hope you’ll keep trying them.

Thanks for sharing in our excitement, and Happy Thanksgiving!

— Caitlin and Sarah

Strawberries at Maxwell’s Strawberry Farm are sweet and red, red, red to the core. The farm operates several fields for picking and rotates as the crop becomes picked over. If you’re in the Cape Elizabeth area of Maine, south of Portland, look for fields marked with red and green signs — and the droves of people and cars, of course.

Taking your own bags to the farmer's market is always a good call — it's a pain to wander through stalls with tens of different little plastic bags. Plus, it just even looks like you've got it all together!

Taking your own bags to the farmers market is always a good call — it’s a pain to wander through stalls with tens of different little plastic bags. Plus, it just even looks like you’ve got it all together!

To wrap up Farmers Market Week, we’ve giving away the perfect tote bag to carry all your market goodies! And truth be told, this is also the perfect bag for the library, the beach and a regular old trip to the grocery store.

This polypropylene bag with nylon handles measures 16 inches across, 15 inches tall, and 6 inches wide. Think that’s enough room for a butternut squash, some kale and a few pints of cherry tomatoes? I’d say so.

Detail of the bag. (I hope you like the color scheme I picked out! Just seemed perfect for spring, summer and fall market shopping.)

How the giveaway works:

You’ll have until noon on Monday to enter for chances to win the bag. At that point, we’ll use a drawing to pick a random winner, and we’ll announce the winner in a new blog post later that day. That winner will need to email us with their mailing address so we can send along his or her prize.

Ways to win:

  • What’s your favorite farmers market? Leave your answer as a comment on this post (share a story, too!), and you’ll be entered in the drawing once.
  • Click “share” on this Facebook post to tell your friends and family about our giveaway, and you’ll be entered in the drawing once more.
  • Retweet our tweet about this giveaway, and you’ll be entered in the drawing once again.

Simple as that! Good luck — we’re looking forward to hearing about your markets!
