A Special Thanksgiving Week Basket and Recipe Ideas

Posted by Melissa on November 23, 2011 in Weekly Recipe Lists |

Happy Thanksgiving! This week’s basket is amazing and so festive for the holidays! Instead of a meal plan this week, we’re sharing extra recipe ideas along with table-scape and fall decor tips for Thanksgiving Day…and what to do with the Leftovers!

This Week’s Basket includes: 

  • Microgreens from Chef’s Greenhouse
  • Green Beans
  • Cranberries
  • Sweet Yellow Onions
  • Garlic
  • Yukon Potatoes
  • Macintosh Apples
  • Sweet Potatoes
  • Granny Smith Apples
  • Acorn Squash
  • Salad Mix (or Lettuce)
The first thing I did (after taking today’s picture using my Instagram app) was wash the salad mix and microgreens and toss them together with thinly sliced pears, apples, shallots, avocado, and carrots and topped with chopped nuts, feta cheese, dried cranberries and balsamic vinegar. If you’re not sure what to do with microgreens, mixing them with your salad greens is delicious!
