When I start working on what goes in the bags, it's often months in advance. We usually count on February to be more - you know - February like. Snow squalls, frozen ground, and blustery winds. Instead, the sun is out and the temperature will peak in the 60s this week.
Oh well, I like pot roast any time of the year! This week's feature ingredient is a grassfed beef pot roast with a quart of animal stock. Use the stock to braise the beef roast, make soup, or make gravy. See below for some easy beef pot roast recipes.
Also, This week we have sugar cookies! We may have missed Valentines Day last week, but it's never to late to say I love you - or just enjoy - some buttercream frosted sugar cookies.
Lastly, there have been some requests for more Meatballs and Smoked Chicken wings. Both are available on the website. And Brent at Miller's Mushrooms has brought us some extra mushrooms this week for those hoping to pair mushrooms with this week's bag. And if the grill is tempting you this week, check out our new burger flavors.
Oh, and new produce in February. John at All Seasons Fresh Greenhouse - the new greenhouse in Big Prairie that I wrote about a few weeks ago - has not only tomatoes, but also jalapeno peppers, sweet banana peppers, and poblanos.
