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, and Dried hot peppers.

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 Tangerines, Bananas, Baby Carrots, Persian Cucumbers, Snow Peas, Navel Oranges, and 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, and Fresh 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!

Anaheim Chile Peppers

Approx 10 Lbs

 

Hoping for Let the pepper roasting begin!  Serve these delicious chiles roasted and peeled, whole or diced, and in flavorful sauces. They are excellent in green sauce and pair well with rice, chicken, pork and monterey jack cheese for some delicious concoctions. Chile rellenos are simple and delicious! Have you tried raw chile rellenos? Just as delicious as the cooked variation! You can simply wash and freeze or roast and peel first – I separate roasted chiles with wax paper before freezing for ease of use. You can pickle peppers (can you hear the rhyme?), pressure can peppers, water bath marinated peppers, and salsa-ify them! Don’t forget pepper jelly – one of my favorite homemade gifts!

Braeburn Apples
Approx 125 count

Approx 38 Lb

 

Braeburns have a fantastic shelf life when kept in the refrigerator! This is a great time to stock up and process snacks for the winter months! Dried apples, apples sauce, fruit rolls, apple pie filling (for pies or crisps!), apple butter! Plenty of options to make some healthy and delicious snacks and treats! Braeburns were one of my grandmother’s favorite pie apples.

Blueberries
Approx twelve 6 oz containers

 

Don’t leave these sitting! No matter how you serve or preserve them, these little gems are delicious! They dehydrate well, jam up nicely, can star in an amazing pie, top yogurt and ice cream, and are great to snack on! We love to add them to pancakes, muffins, and scones.

Grapefruit

Approx 48 count

 

Grapefruit are chock-full of Vitamin C and have many other health benefits – exactly what we want! These are a lovely, refreshing breakfast side.

Mangoes

Approx 9 count
Approx 4 kilos

 

Mangoes are a great, fresh addition to salsas, smoothies, yogurt, granola! Make mango water, mango sorbet, or mango-mint limeade!
