Hoping for Acorn Squash, Butternut Squash, and Spaghetti Squash.

Hostess Pack

 

Additions to round out your Thanksgiving feast! I like to prep ahead of time and freeze for a low-stress holiday

Roasting Veggie Pack

 

This is one of our favorite packs right now! 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!

 

Hoping for Fresh Thyme, Rosemary, Sage, Red Potatoes, Cauliflower, Carrots, Beets and Onions.

 

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. 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!

Bananas

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!

Carrots
Approx 48 lbs

 

Shredded, roasted, steamed, peeled and dipped, juiced, pressure canned, pickled, par boiled and frozen, carrots are multi-use! Roast them for a naturally sweet treat. My kids cheer when they see that big bag – it means apple/carrotjuice is on the menu for the week! Grab some celery and onions and chop up a bunch for mirepoix and throw in the freezer for easy starts to innumerable savory dishes!

Kale

Approx 24 bunches

 

Make kale chips (a family favorite!); braised kale; kalesalad; juice it or put it in smoothies, egg scrambles, pasta, and soups and stews; and on pizza! This superfood veggie is so versatile and so good for you. My current daily breakfast: fresh kale, sweet potato (cubed, roasted, and frozen), chopped garlic, olive oil in a pan; top with a fried egg, homemade sriracha, and crumbled bacon or sausage if there’s any languishing in the fridge! It is an amazing start to my day!

Pomegranates
Approx 36 count

 

These delightful healthy treats are one of my favorite was to occupy my children.  Sit them outside with a pomegranate and a cup and they’ll be busy for an hour and get healthier by the moment!  I freeze the arils on a sheet pan and then throw in a freezer bag, ready to top salads, include in recipes, and enjoy out of hand – they freeze beautifully! – and of course there are faster ways to get them out of the fruit than picking!  Check out You Tube for some fun videos. The pomegranate has strong symbolic meaning throughout history in Greece and is present in many Greek dishes and sauces. And they’re gorgeous in a fall display!
