A Tale of Two Birdies

As you can see, the Graphics Department here at Family Dinner is deeply DIY. Hopefully you'll forgive our foul fowl drawings (wink).

Thanksgiving is just a few weeks away! For this holiday we have two great options for you. We are partnering with Steve Hurd from Hurd Farm in Hampton, NH. The farm has been family owned and operated since 1923 and pasture raises their poultry without antibiotics or hormones. They sell out every year!

We also have amazing Chickens on sale from Tad at Feather Brook Farms. Many of our members have called this the tastiest chicken they've ever eaten!

Place your order by Sunday evening (Nov 18) and we will deliver right to your door on Tuesday, giving you plenty of time to prepare these beautiful birds.  

Chickens range from 4-15 lbs.  Turkeys range from 12-30 lbs. If you’re ordering a smaller bird, we recommend 2 lbs per person. If you’re ordering a big bird, we recommend ordering 1-½ lbs per person.

We recommend ordering early! These guys are limited!

RECIPES

Don't wrap up that grill just yet. These brioche rolls from Iggy's will be a great bed for cheeseburger sliders, maybe with some Caramelized Onions  and a schmear of cheese from Couet Farm (if you have any left).  The cheese could also pair well with a grilled salmon or tofu slider. 

Perfect Scrambled Eggs: If you're not into the grill or your burger meat is going to disappear into a marinara sauce- think about egg sandwiches for those rolls. Lots of folks prefer a fried egg in their AM sammies, I like mine scrambled (so does Frank the Dog). The key to a perfect fluffy egg is time, low heat and patience.  You shall be rewarded.

Tofu Eggplant Scramble: A great dish to have on hand all week. I like to heat the onions first with a touch of curry powder to add a warm touch. This recipes asks you to add nutritional yeast but that seems like a little bit of a punishment so I skip it.

Stuffed Poblano Peppers:  They call for this to be vegetarian and you can certainly go that route. We're going to heat up some beef (Chorizo could work too!) and add it to the mix. Any left over "stuffing" you have make for a great base for a poached egg later in the week.
