Weekly Menu

Happy Thanksgiving week everyone!!  Hopefully you will all enjoy extra time with family.  We are having a very small Thanksgiving dinner this year (just my immediate family of 4), so I have total freedom in menu planning!  I'm kind of excited for the change of pace and the chance to build some traditions of our own.  We picked up some great produce at the farm this week and even have a brand new veggie to try: romanesco broccoli!  I am so excited to try it because it might be the coolest looking vegetable ever!  Along with the romanesco broccoli, we chose some chard, red leaf lettuce, romaine lettuce, kale, zucchini, tomatoes, green beans, and cauliflower.  We also picked up some pie pumpkins and red potatoes from another farm that are not pictured.  With that, we will make the following:

  • Gardein Crispy Chicken Wraps with Sauteed Cauliflower
    • using the lettuce, tomatoes, and cauliflower

  • Thanksgiving Menu!
    • Roasted Romanesco Broccoli, Green Bean Casserole, Mashed Potatoes, Roasted Chard With Feta, Pumpkin Pie, and Pumpkin Pie Martinis!  We will be trying the Vegan Seitan Wellington from Native Foods Cafe as a main course (something I have been wanting to try for years!!)


  1. Ah - finding new veggies to try is always so exciting!! Happy Thanksgiving!! Enjoy!

  2. enjoy your thankgiving!! that broccoli looks awesome!
