Eating Seasonally – Fall Into Winter

A customer recently asked on Facebook if we could provide a weekly menu to help shoppers cook seasonally. Never one to let an idea slip by without at least investigating it I decided to see what I could come up with off the cuff. Volunteers Autumn, Denise and I came up with these ideas this afternoon. Checking this grouping out I realized I totally forgot about our pasta and pasta sauce selection, many of our other currently available squashes, the plethora of greens that we have in right now. And mushrooms were delivered just as we were finishing up! We’ll see if we can make this a regular Monday thing. ~Raine

A roast is the perfect way to start the week. If you buy one larger than what you need for dinner you have a couple of lunches as an added bonus – without any extra work. A simple salad or roasted potatoes would complete this meal easily.

Butternut Squash Soup
Tuesday
The Potager Butternut Squash
Gardner Farms Bacon
Fuhrmann Apples
Four Seasons Bread
Velvety butternut squash soup, with added oomph from the bacon is a win-win. Four Season Farm’s hearty bread is a nice complement. Add salad for the win!
Roasted ChickenWednesday
Gardner Farms Chicken
Asberry Farm Sweet Potatoes
The Potager Garlic
Back Acher Farms Rosemary
Another roasted dish. Rosemary and chicken are two great tastes that taste great together. Sweet potatoes add a lovely richness. There are so many greens at the market that a salad or braised collards from LeJa Produce would finish the meal.
Stuffed Bell Peppers IngredientsThursday
Rolling R Italian Sausage,
Kim’s Greenhouse Bell Peppers
Laurel Valley Creamery Mozzarella
DJ Produce Garlic
On a cool fall day stuffed peppers are easy to fix and always a crowd favorite.

Rolling R Brisket
JB’s BBQ Sauce

Who needs anything else when you have this much beef? But if you did, a bright green salad would be a nice counterpoint.
Salad FixingsSalad Fixings
Gritt’s Greenhouse Bibb Lettuce, Cucumber, and Tomato
Back Acher Carrots and Mesclun Mix
Killer Bee Endive
Salad is too easy, especially with ingredients like these. Radishes will be back soon and sweet bell peppers would be a nice addition. Other great sides would be potatoes, broccoli, spaghetti squash.
