Stove Top Stuffing Cheat – Farm Fresh Tuesday (#29)

This week in our Farm Fresh Tuesday Blog Hop, I am featuring a post that shares a quick and easy way to dress up your favorite Stove Top Stuffing just in time for the holidays! Stuffing or Dressing for the Holidays Do you call it stuffing or dressing? We call it stuffing in our household, and Stove Top is the family’s favorite. It seems like a cheat to use stuffing from a box on the holidays, but my family won’t use anything else. I think doctoring it up slightly, is a great way to dress it up and hopefully your guests won’t be able to tell its from a box! Happy Holidays to you and yours!

How to Cook Winter Squash in an Instant Pot – Farm Fresh Tuesday (#28)

This week in our Farm Fresh Tuesday Blog Hop, I am featuring a post that shares how to cook a winter squash in an instant pot! Perfectly timed before Thanksgiving! Winter Squash for Thanksgiving Thanksgiving is just a little more than a week away, and many people will be cooking winter squash for the holiday. But why take up an extra burner on the stove? Use your instant pot, and get the job done quickly and efficiently! Also a great idea for those busy week day evenings! Pressure Cooking Winter Squash There are several ways to cook winter squash in a pressure cooker or instant pot. You can leave it whole or halve it, which might work well for spaghetti squash, delicata or acorn squash. Or you can cube it, which might work better for butternut, jarrahdale, sweat meat or blue hubbard. See our featured post down below for more info on how to cook a halved squash. Increase the time to 25 minutes for a whole squash, and let it naturally release for at least 10 minutes. For cubed squash, peel and seed the squash or pumpkin, cut into 1″ cubes, add to pressure cooker with 1 cup of water. Cook on high pressure for 3 minutes if you want them to hold their shape or for 4 minutes if you plan to mash them or want them softer. Than do a quick release.

Thanksgiving Dinner Recipes – Farm Fresh Tuesday (#27)

This week in our Farm Fresh Tuesday Blog Hop, I am featuring a post with list of all the recipes you need for Thanksgiving Dinner! Happy Veterans Day! As I write this post on Veterans Day, I wanted to take time out to thank all of those who have served or are serving our country. I thank you for your service! Thanksgiving Is Almost Here! Are you hosting? Do you have a plan? We host Thanksgiving dinner every year, but thankfully, my husband likes to prepare most things. I do one dish that is called Veggie Mash in our house, a recipe that my mother-in-law always made before we started hosting. I think it is a traditional English dish, as my in-laws are British, and it is basically exactly as it sounds. I will post an actual recipe very soon, but in the mean time, I will give the most basic instructions for it down below. Using root vegetables such as carrots, parsnip, turnips or rutabegas, along with a large butternut squash and some onion all chopped up well into 1/2-1″ size or so, boil all together until root veggies and squash are soft. Drain, mash with a potato masher, add some salt, pepper, thyme and butter, and walla! You can mash it smooth or leave it a little lumpy, it’s totally up to you! I personally like to leave it a little bit lumpy. This recipe uses up alot of things in my vegetable storage from the garden too! And so yummy! What is your favorite Thanksgiving dish?
