We Missed You!

We hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and enjoyed a bit of time off and some delicious food. From our side, we spent time with Family eating, drinking and getting our butts kicked by our moms at Bananagrams and Scrabble. We also got the chance to tour some farms and meet this magical lady. A cow who can lick her nose with her tongue may have nothing to do with the content of this week's share but it is AWESOME.

This week we wanted to give us all a break from the heavy meats and dishes drowning in gravy (not that there is anything wrong with that.) We are serving up Pollock from Red's Best . Delicious, versatile and decidedly NOT turkey. We hope you love this light, bright fish this week.

RECIPES

Foil Fish Packs: A quick way to dress up your Pollock mid-week. Low-Key on the clean up too, so you can get back to watching House of Cards.

Thai Coconut Fish Curry: A few more ingredients from the Pantry, like coconut milk,  but its a warm bowl of happiness.

Kale and Squash Minestra: "Minestra" is just a light vegetable soup. Further proof that even the most dull things sound better in Italian.  You can use the pasta here if you wish or skip it and drag some of the Bear's Beans out of your cupboard.

Cottage Cheese Alfredo:  Don't knock it 'til you've wolfed down an entire bowl of it before anyone else could even sit down.

Black Sea Bass with Tomatoes: Calls back to summer with a light, acidic broth. 

TIP
The pasta from Lord of Pasta was made Friday afternoon. It will hang happily in your fridge for a few days but if you don't plan to eat it right away it can be frozen for up to 4 weeks.   When cooking it should be in the 1-2 minute range so keep an eye on it!
