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?

Fall Salad with Pears and Curried Cashews Recipe – Farm Fresh Tuesday (#24)

This week in our Farm Fresh Tuesday Blog Hop, I am featuring an amazing recipe for a Fall Salad with Pears and Curried Cashews! This sounds sooooo good! Fall Foods = Salads? I know when fall rolls around, that all I crave are warm dishes like soups and stews. But we must remember to eat our veggies! Even though I am a pescatarian (a vegetarian who eats seafood), I still sometimes struggle to get in enough veggies. A hearty salad is just one way to do this. This recipe (scroll down for link to my featured article this week) for a Fall Salad with Pears and Curried Cashews caught my eye in last weeks blog hop, and I have it on my list to give it a go in the next week. Even though it calls for bacon bits, it’s easy to omit them for a veggie/vegan/plant based option. One of my all time favorite hearty salads is this Galicky Kale Salad with Crispy Chick Peas that are seasoned with Indian spices from Minimalistic Baker. So when I saw this salad with the curried cashews, I was instantly interested! Another favorite hearty fall salad of mine, is this Kale Salad I shared in a previous Farm Fresh Tuesday Blog Hop post, Planning Dinner from Your Garden Harvest. Favorite Fall Recipes on the Blog I have shared a couple of other fall favorite recipes here on the blog, including my Hearty Pumpkin Spice Steel Cut Oats. And on another previous Farm Fresh Tuesday Blog Hop post, I shared these Fall Flavored Cupcakes and Muffin Recipes.
