And so it begins...

I brought home my annual Pre-Thanksgiving haul from Whole Foods!

So, I guess I'd better get to work!

On another note, I have been making an effort to try new things. Last week at the farmer's market, I was talking with a hydroponic organic farmer (so cool!) and she turned me on to Yellow Squash Blossoms.

I asked her what to do with them, and she said, make quesadillas, with lots of cheese. Hmm. So a Mexican flair? I made a flatbread sammy with Avocado Cilantro hummus, roasted red peppers and squashblossoms sauteed in onions and garlic. Yummy.

When I have some time to whip up some queso, I am going to try out that quesadilla idea.


  1. I can't wait for thanksgiving!!!

  2. I miss squash blossoms! I don't know if its an Italian thing, but my family lightly breads and fries them (you know, in an effort to make things that are good for you totally fattening and delicious). I've never really heard of putting them in anything Mexican before!

  3. Next time you could stuff the blossoms, but no matter what, they look always beautiful.
    Have a great Thanksgiving!

  4. You're going to be busy! I can't wait to see the finished dishes.

    I'm with Mihl. I had a stuffed squash blossom that was then tempura'd in a restaurant once. It was delicious. But I'd dig into your quesadilla super fast, too.

  5. Wow--that is quite the haul from Whole Foods! I am sure your Thanksgiving meal will be delicious!


  6. Your WF grocery haul is awesome! I'm sure an amazing feast will come out of it.

    Have a happy Thanksgiving Joni!

  7. Those squash blossoms are gorgeous!

  8. I've only heard of stuffing squash blossoms, but haven't done it yet!

  9. I harvest these straight from my garden. You can do lots of stuff with them including frying!
