On the day before Thanksgiving, you can't show up the banquet, so we went with a simple meal of meatloaf. We had some peppers pre-cut and frozen from our garden and picked up the ground sirloin, which happen to be in abundance as everyone was buying bird and pork. The market was all a buzz, and we look forward to showing you our mashed potato contribution to tomorrow's meal.

Ingredients / Vendor:

Ground Sirloin / Eckerlein Meats
Honey / Bee Haven Honey
Spices / Herbs & Spice & Everything Nice
Tomato Paste / Madison's
Brown Sugar / Madison's
Onions / Madison's
Potatoes / Simpson's Produce

Recipe from old standby "Betty Crocker".

With the days getting colder, we have definitely been enjoying the comfort foods. And with the holidays upon us, leftovers are key to getting it all done. Fresh makes it best.

Eggplant Sticks with Babaganoush and Mixed Green Salad

We typically follow the rule that if it's breaded, it's automatically going to be delicious, and also tandemly bad for our health. Well the script was flipped on this one and we broke all the rules making a fried and breaded vegetable that turned out to be both delicious and somehow good for us...yeah I know what you're thinking...the twilight zone right...too good to be true. Well our taste buds will contest that it wasn't too good to be true, and we honestly just couldn't stop ourselves from eating healthy.

Ingredients / Vendor:

Eggplant / Madison's
Mixed Greens / Madison's
Panko / Saigon Market
Eggs / Heist Seafood & Poultry
Tahini / Dean's Mediterranean
Olive Oil / Dean's
Pita / Madison's

Recipe from Grandma's kitchen.

Double eggplant (eggplant strips and baba) means double happiness. Round it out with a simple salad, game over. Fresh makes it best.
