Why? Fresh Fork!

I was ready for some more fall-like dishes this week and luckily our Fresh Fork Market bag provided the right ingredients for that!

What We Got:

1 bunch golden beets

Approx. 2.5 lbs San Marzano Roma tomatoes

Heirloom tomatoes

1 pint yummy pepper mix (all sweet peppers)

1 lb Berkshire bacon

1/2 lb mixed baby greens

1 head lettuce

1 head cabbage

1 quarter peck Gala apples

What We Made:

Lazy Stuffed Cabbage Casserole (click here for the recipe)

This dish was a hearty way to use up our cabbage, as well as some tomatoes (I substituted fresh tomatoes for the canned ones called for in the recipe). I recommend using some additional tomato sauce to give the casserole moisture. Also, I added garlic, basil, and oregano to the meat mixture.

Farfalle with Golden Beets, Beet Greens, and Pine Nuts (click here for the recipe)


I loved the fresh taste of this dish. The toasted pine nuts added a nice texture too. Perfect for a quick after-work supper!

Roasted Acorn Squash (click here for the recipe)

We had the acorn squash from a previous bag and this made a nice fall side dish alongside grilled pork chops. I really liked the amaretto and brown sugar sweetness of this recipe.

Breakfast (no recipe needed)

As I mentioned before, I’m not really a breakfast person. So I made this for Matthew before my yoga class on Saturday morning, but couldn’t resist snagging a piece of the bacon for myself. This is an entirely Fresh Fork ingredients breakfast: crispy Berkshire bacon and scrambled eggs with sweet peppers and grape tomatoes.

Apple Crisp (click here for the recipe)

This used both our apples and some of the rolled oats we got a couple weeks back. This dessert really lets the apples shine and the oats provide a nice, hearty flavor to the crumble top.

How did you use your Fresh Fork this week?
