Hostess Pack

 

This hostess Pack is fabulous if you are the chosen one pulling it all together for your frineds or family this Christmas, or if you want all the holiday fixings at home even though you are doing the official dinner elsewhere!  

Here are some of my fav simple holidays ideas for this pack.

Hoping for Rainbow Carrots, Russet and Sweet Potatoes, Pineapple, Green Beans, Kale, Tangerines, and Green Apples.

Russet Potatoes – Sour Cream Mashed over here.

 
Rainbow Carrots – Roast them to keep the color! A perfect addition to a fresh veggie platter.

Sweet Potatoes – Baked, then peeled and cut into rounds and topped with a drizzle of melted butter and some spiced pecans.  This is great with a bit of brown sugar too, but we are staying away from refined sugar so not that way this year for us.

Pineapple – for a fresh fruit platter or pineapple upside down cake! We love to blend with orange juice and add some sparkling water for a special morning drink!

 
Green Beans – we go simple! For the kids, panfried and al dente with chopped garlic, red pepper flake, and a splash of soy sauce or coconut aminos. For the husband, panfried and tender with onions, butter, parsley, lemon, and slivered almonds.

Cutie Tangerines – the perfect traveling snack, full of Vitamin C!
 
Kale – a darky leafy green that stands up to cooking and performs beautifully raw in shredded salad! We love soup for Christmas Eve, and either do a Beef Stew or a Zuppa Toscana in bread bowls (to make it fancy!). 

Granny Smith Apples – for a perfect Pie.  I have taken to putting my peeled and sliced apples in a ziplock and I shake them with the Flour, Sugar and Spices so that they are perfectly covered before putting into the crust!  Best Pie ever.  My daughter loves to plan and implement a fancy top crust design!

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 Red, Russet and Sweet Potatoes, Carrots, Beets, Turnips, and Red 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!

Red Beets

Approx 25 Lbs

 

Crisp, juicy, and sweet! We love them thinly sliced with lemon and chile; roasted and tossed with goat cheese or feta and greens; sprinkled with garlic salt and cumin roasted with sweet potatoes; in soups and stews; and pickled!

Kohlrabi
Approx 12
bunches

 

Kohlrabi is a cultivar of cabbage – a “cabbage turnip! Enjoy both raw and cooked. Leaves are interchangable with spinach and kale’ roots and stems are often used in salads like broccoli and carrots. Spirilize or matchstick, slice thinly or cube in salads. Grate (like hashbrowns) or fry for a dinner time side. Steak, then blanche and grill as a veggie entree!

Parsnips

Approx 20 Lb

 

In the carrot family, this root vegetable is AMAZING roasted! Nuttier and sweeter than carrots, they can be prepared the same – roasted, roasted then frozen for later, in soups and stews, We love them simple with salt and pepper, more completx with the warmer spices like ginger, cinnamon, and nutmeg, and with stronger herbs like cumin, coriander, and fresh garlic,  rosemary, or thyme.

Pineapple
Approx 8 count

 

Delicious fresh and in smoothies, add to jams, and bottle chunks! Freezes beautifully for smoothies or later processing. Juice some up with oranges or mango for a super special anddelicious breakfast beverage. Have you tried dehydrated pineapple? So easy and delicious! A perfect summer-y, sweet, and healthy snack at home or on the go.

We enjoyed a lovely punch at Thanksgiving with fresh pineapple juice and floating pineapple rings. Pretty and delicious!

 

My kids love Virgin Pina Coladas as a special treat, and they’re pros at making them – even my 7yo! Into the blender goes chunks of pineapple, coconut milk or coconut creme depending on what we have, ice, and just a squeeze of lime. No sugar or dairy required!

Turnips
Approx 25 Lb

 

These nutty, almost sweet root veggies are a favorite in this house! They have a nice storage life. We love them roasted on a sheet pan with other root veggies, garlic, and herbs; pan fried in a cast iron skillet in a breakfast hash; glazed with carrots; in soups, stews, and chilis; julienned in salads; and baked, boiled, steamed, and then mashed like (or with!) potatoes!
