I'm hoping to post a few favorite recipes soon that would be perfect for the Thanksgiving table, but since you never know what's going to happen around here (there's nothing like a ram who decides ten girlfriends aren't enough and breaks through eleven strands of barbed wire in order to reach all the ewes you really didn't want to breed this year—that would be yesterday's excitement) for now I thought I'd offer up a few tasty ideas from the Farmgirl Fare archives. Just click on each title to go to the recipe. Recipe roundups for Thanksgiving vegetable side dishes, breads and rolls, dessert, and more will follow. Enjoy!
Hot Swiss Chard and Artichoke Dip (and other ways to enjoy my favorite leafy green, which is so easy to grow from seed)
Sour Cream and Onion Dip (and foodie travel)
Quick Homemade (Relatively) Lowfat Buttermilk Ranch Dressing or Dip (great with a platter of fresh veggies)
© 2010 FarmgirlFare.com, the festive foodie farm blog where we went from sunny and 80° on Thursday to breezy with a high of just 48° on Friday—and an icy 22° this morning. It finally feels like fall again, and I've been warming up the kitchen doing lots of hearty slow Dutch oven cooking to prove it. On this week's menu are a pot of thick and comforting Roasted Leek and Potato Soup with Arugula (or Spinach) and a Slow Roasted Greek Style Leg of Lamb with Oregano & Lemon, Potatoes, and Swiss Chard. This time of year on the farm is one of my favorites—and it always tastes so good!
