Some of the happenings this week…

 

Couscous with Roasted Winter Squash, Apple, and Chorizo

Well, it is the week before Thanksgiving and in between all of the prep for the big day, we’ve still got to eat…cue seasonal, easy recipes that can make a lot.  I made this recipe last night and it is delicious and full of flavor.  I wish that I had doubled or tripled it; which you can easily do (as long as you have a big enough bowl to mix it all in.)  My one tweak would be on the apples.  I used granny smith and cut them into 1/2 inch dice as instructed; they disintegrated.  Next time, I would cut them into 1 inch pieces or reduce their cooking time.  Everything tasted great, the apples were just off texture-wise.  Also, definitely taste at the end and don’t skimp on the smoked paprika.  Happy Thanksgiving!!

SOUTHERN NATIVE PLANTINGS AT LONGWOOD PLANTATION

Mike and Karen Smith are farmers’ farmers. From their busy piece of rural paradise in tiny Newington, GA, this powerhouse couple does a unique kind of agriculture: they help others grow their farms. “We call ourselves ‘farm-assists,” Karen laughs with a signature...

Sweet Potato Cheesecake

Not panicking, really…well, maybe a little.  Thanksgiving is 2 weeks away!!! It snuck up on me a bit (as I knew it would, due to the fall vacation,) but I am feeling like I can still pull it all together, kinda.  I made a tentative menu this week and have ordered the turkey that I want, so that part is under control.  I know the potatoes that I want to have, still looking for green veggie recipes and had decided on dessert.  Then, I saw this recipe and thought; well maybe two desserts, who needs green vegetables anyway (me, after 2.5 weeks of vacation food.)  Still, I am sorely tempted to make this.  I do love a good cheesecake and how southern that it is with sweet potatoes.  I will keep you posted, but just in case anyone is looking for a show stopper dessert…let me tempt you.

Butternut Squash Soup with Brown Butter

Well guys, I made it back from vacation; tired and in need of another vacation, but I digress.  We had a lovely time and weather just could not have been better, but coming home to cold temps (it was 28F here,) not much in the fridge, and with a cold, meant that the squash I squirreled away before leaving was going to become soup.  Then with my vacation addled brain, it became a choice of which recipe to make.  So, shopping in my fridge and pantry revealed butter, leeks, carrots, shallots, and vegetable stock, so this is the one I chose.  Plus, I believe brown butter makes everything better.  There are a few steps (particularly if you make your own stock,) but it is well worth it in the end.  I would definitely double the recipe next time.  It heats up well and do not skimp on the garnish and crusty bread. Ciao!
