November 29 weekly menu | fall table

Farm Fresh

That is, still farm fresh, from the mountain of Thanksgiving veggies I received just before the big feast!

brussels sprouts, carrots, celeriac, potatoes, radicchio, shallots, beets, winter squash

What’s for Dinner?

Well, “A for Effort,” that’s for sure. One can only use so many pounds of veggies in one meal! But now what? We (over) did the Thanksgiving dinner, and as much as I absolutely love the tradition of turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, & all the various veggie sides, I love it once. Then I switch gears, to one that’s friendly to my tired and aching feet, and one that’s decidedly un-American (food-wise, that is.) This week, what’s left of my bounty, plus turkey…lots and lots of turkey.

Friday – chili & cornbread
