Aloha Oahu Fresh Ohana! We are looking forward to this week’s bag…it’s the pre-Thanksgiving bag and we always enjoy putting this one together. We hope you’ll find the items useful in preparing your family’s dinner either that day or in the days to come. You’ll be receiving Nalo Farms poultry herb mix (perfect for your turkey!), Nalo Farms tomatoes, Ho Farms Japanese cucumbers, Ho Farms collard greens, Pit Farms kabocha squash and papayas, and 808 Farm Fresh lettuce. With all this you can make some wonderful dishes to go with your turkey or take to the dinner you’re attending!
Roasted Cauliflower and Kabocha soup This sounds really tasty and could be a perfect first course at Thanksgiving dinner! Serve it in small bowls or cups as an appetizer.
Collard Greens with Ham Bone We used to have so many guests at Thanksgiving when I was growing up that we always had a turkey and a ham…which made wonderful day after lunches! If you are looking for a way to try collard greens, this recipe is a winner. Get a ham bone or hock and try this out. Then you can easily recreate it next week if you’re feeding several!
Papaya Bread A sweet bread that would be a great gift to take your Thanksgiving dinner host, or to make for your own dinner. You could serve this with cream cheese and lilikoi butter and it would be a yummy dessert option.
Happy Thanksgiving (early!) from Oahu Fresh! We won’t be delivering the week of Thanksgiving so that we and our drivers can enjoy the holiday with our family and friends. We’ll see you the week after and hope you have a lot to be thankful for.
