Here we are in December with the holidays coming up and the last Market of the season several weeks behind us. I don’t know about you, but I still have a few items from the Market in my freezer and pantry. What, I wondered, can I do for holiday celebrations that would also use those last BRFM purchases?
My pantry turned up a butternut squash and two small pie pumpkins, as well as half a dozen apples. I also found maple syrup, honey, and some rutabagas. My freezer held a salmon fillet, 1 lb. of ground bison, persimmon pulp, and a frozen loaf of ciabatta bread. Green beans and fennel were in the fridge. Now here is the plan!
Snowy Day Warm-Me-Up Lunch
(substitute bison for the beef and rutabaga for the potato!)
Christmas Eve Elegant Supper
Christmas Morning Breakfast
(use any good bread and top with real maple syrup!)
- 1 cup plain nonfat yogurt
- 1 cup persimmon pulp
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 3/4 cup crushed ice
Puree ingredients in a blender. Divide between 2 glasses and serve.
New Years Day
(add a big green salad and you’ve got an easy meal!)
