Asian Pack

 

Ingredients to inspire your Asian-themed dining adventures! Chinese Chicken Salad (fancy), Chinese chicken salad (simple – shred Napa cabbage, carrot, chicken breast; top with snow peas, celery, and seasoned rice vinegar), broccoli beef, and stir frys galore! We always keep dumplings in the freezer – they’re a delicous and quick snack or supper! These vegetable dumplings are my daughter’s favorite. The carnivores in my life enjoy them, too, but prefer these Easiest Pork and Cabbage Dumplings Ever.

 

Hoping for Broccoli, Napa Cabbage, Mushrooms, Ginger, Baby Bok Choy, Shiitake Mushrooms, Snow Peas, Carrots, Green Onions, Garlic, Chinese Egplant, Bean Sprout

Lunchbox Pack

 

Have kids packing lunches or like having extra “finger food”? This pack is for you! Fill those tummies with something delicious and nutritious if you want those brains to fill up with reading, writing and arithmetic. We all think better with a full tummy and without artificial refined ingredients. So many kids “problem” classroom behaviors iron out when they start eating a clean diet.

 

Hoping for Clementines , Bananas, Baby Carrots, Persian Cucumbers, Snow Peas, Navel Oranges, Granny Smith Apples

Roasting Veggie Pack

 

Packed with root veggies galore, there’s a ton of nutritional variety and it is so pretty! When we get this pack we chop everything right away and put it in ziplock bags, and then each time we would like roasted veggies, we grab some and follow the directions below! NOTE: Be careful when leaving roasted veggies out on a sheet pan to cool. It’s so easy to graze on it all afternoon, and before you know it, you’ll have eaten most of the pan and there won’t be enough for dinner! This is a serious issue in our house!

 

Hoping for Cauliflower, Sweet Potatoes, Carrots Jumbo Roasters, Turnip, Beets, Red Onion, Garlic

 

Simple Roasted Veggies
Peel and Cube in 1″ pieces any/all the items from your pack!
Put them in a ziplock bag and drizzle in enough Olive Oil to cover, then I add salt and pepper to taste, and about a tbsp of onion powder. Add a tsp or two of any other herbs you love – we love thyme and rosemary! – and unpeeled garlic cloves if you love roasted garlic as much as we do.
Shake and shake and shake, then dump onto a pan. Put in over at 375. Stirring every 15 minutes if it is not single layer and cook until fork soft. About 45 min to 1 hour!

Feeling adventurous?
Mix up the seasonings and include about a tsp of cumin. After roasting, finish with a splace of red wine or balsamic vinegar!

 

Leftover roasted veggies are delicious cold as a salad topper the next day!

Bananas

Approx 90 count

Approx 40 Lbs

 

Your very own case of bananas! We love to freeze them for smoothies and shakes or rainy day banana bread and muffins. Or dehydrate them for chips. Let your imagination fly! We enjoy mini banana muffins in lunchboxes and for easy on-the-go snacks!

Cauliflower
Approx 12 count

 

Cauliflower is SO versatile! Do you eat a paleo or low carb diet, or do you just make sure to serve a veggie or two every night for dinner?  Either way this is a great opportunity to get your hands on lots of Cauliflower to par boil and freeze! Make last-minute dinners easy, and don’t forget to prep and freeze cauliflower crust for gluten-free pizza! Roasted cauliflower soup is divine.
 
Roast the whole head: Brush with olive oil, sprinkle with garic, and roast the whole head. I’ll cut into steaks, roast, and serve with salsa or chimichurri for my vegetarian kiddos, or chop and make seasoned “taco meat” and add lentils or quinoa. 

Or, if you want a slightly naughty and amazing and kid-friendly dish:

Recipe:
Steam cauliflower florets to just-tender
Dip one side in egg wash, then dip in Parmesan cheese,
Pan-fry in a bit of olive oil until golden brown and delicious!

Our kids will annihilate two heads of cauliflower in one sitting when we prepare it this way. A Sally family secret recipe… now not-so-secret!

Cara Cara Pink Oranges
Approx 88 count

Cara Cara Oranges are the perfect kid snack! Juicy, very sweet, low acid, and usually seedless, these are perfect served in wedges on a plate or in your beverage.

Red Pears

Approx 45 count

 

Eat out of hand, killer spiced pear or apple-pearbutter for brunch, apple-pear sauce for the lunchbox! These are beautiful bottled, and luscious baked en galette. Swoon!

Sweet Potatoes

Approx 40 lbs

 

Try them grilled, roasted, steamed, and baked. Prepare them cubed, mashed, pureed, made into fries, and baked into pies – and then freeze for later! They can be bottled, too! We love sweet potatoes, and I love having them prepped ahead for my holiday baking. Store as you would baking potatoes. Cube and roast (or roast and then slice) a few to top your salad – you won’t be disappointed!
