Local Box Meal Plan 11/21-11/25

It’s Thanksgiving week!  My husband and I will be the only two eating our Thanksgiving meal this year, so I am using many Local Box items on our menu, and to re-purpose the leftovers afterwards.

Local Box Contents:

  • Pears – Lightsey Farm
  • Apples – Top of Texas
  • Broccoli Raab Bunch – My Father’s Farm
  • Radish Bunch – My Father’s Farm
  • Flat Leaf Parsley – Tecolote Farm
  • Tomatoes – Engel Farm
  • Limes – G&S Grove
  • Acorn Squash – Gundermann Acres
  • Kale OR Collard Greens – Gundermann Acres
  • Green Shallot OR Green Garlic Bunch – Fruitful Hill Farm

Here’s the plan:

Meal One: Spaghetti with Broccoli Rabe, Toasted Garlic, and Breadcrumbs

Meal Two: Turkey Tomato Panini, made with leftover turkey of course! Sliced apples will make an easy side, along with other leftovers.

Meal Three: Hearty Turkey Soup with Parsley Dumplings. This is  kind of a cross between chicken and dumplings and turkey soup. I will be using our turkey carcass to make this.
