READY FOR YOU!

READY FOR YOU!

Dinner, as we all likely are aware, comes at the end of the day. Sometimes it comes at the very end of very long days, where we have been stretched and pulled in a thousand directions, seemingly simultaneously. We get home and the prospect of dinner looms large, imposing another demand on your tired brain that feels like it clocked out hours ago. 

Some days you just can't. Some days you eat Peanut Butter and Jelly on an onion bagel again (don't you dare judge me) and call it supper. 

On those days, put down the Jelly and the allium-laden substrate and let us take over.  We're launching a new Prepared Foods aisle of our store to help you out in these moments of need. Lasagnas from Dave's and Valicenti, delicious vegetarian soups from Forge (pictured), Mac and Cheese, Clam Chowder, and more. 

We will be actively adding to this page (hello, Pot Pie!) and would love to hear any suggestions or cravings you have. 

Take a nice, deep breath, folks--it's Friday. We hope you enjoy something delicious this weekend.

RECIPES (MA)

(from Erin)

Ina Garten's Meatloaf: Ina Garten wants you to have meatloaf for dinner, and so do we. Fun fact - did you know Queen Ina used to work in the White House on Nuclear Budget issues? Dang, woman!

Italian Wedding Soup: Let's stay with the Queen here and cook up Ina's soup. This is super riffable. Sub the chicken for ground beef. Use whatever greens and pasta you have. Go loco on the garlic.

Fried Cod: Winter has me missing clam shacks and super crispy fried fish. Get after that nostalgia at home and whip up a slaw with any cabbage or carrots you have left over. 

Turnip and Potato Gratin: Buuuut because it's still winter, how about a potato and turnip gratin? Serve as a side, or as a main with a big green salad.

RECIPES (ME/NH)

Blueberry Pancakes - Kinda set you up for an easy score with this one. Delicious, ME-made pancake mix and frozen wild ME blueberries? And bacon? And eggs? And butter? Happy weekend. 🤤

Blueberry Agrodolce - Savory fruit preparations! This recipe uses salmon but this would be excellent on some haddock or sea bass or chicken or pork.

BLT - Feel like I'm cheating on recipes this week... you've got bacon, you've got beautiful heads of butter salanova from Dandelion Spring, you've got lovely tomatoes from Backyard Farms. Delicious food needn't be rocket surgery.
 
Bitter Greens Salad with Melted Cheese - Holy crap. My partner just reminded me about this amazing bitter greens recipe from Josh McFadden's cookbook Six Seasons (which is excellent, by the way). This is super tasty and what we'll be doing with our radicchio and eztron mix.
 
Pickled Beet Salad with Chickpea Mash - Pickle some beets and toss a portion into this and you've got yourself a meal or a side and maybe even some leftover pickled beets in the fridge.
 
Substitutions for Cooking - Shan put this into the MA newsletter a couple weeks ago and I knew I had to pass it on. Super helpful reference guide, especially for those of us who are trying to be better eaters and consumers (more local, more seasonal, less waste). Strengthening your adaptation muscles will, over time, make cooking way more intuitive, interactive and fun.
