Is all I really need to whip up to take me right back to Thanksgiving. You can pretty much toss any cooked veggies in (fennel, sweet potato, carrot, celery, onion are in this one), make the creamy sauce, and whisk up some drop biscuits topped with fresh rosemary and you've got a real deal feast.
Now the freakishly enormous celery that is hoppin' out of my farmbox is so dang intimidating, I had to turn to the cookbook, Tender. He takes celery and poaches it with onion and bay leaf, then tops it all with a butter sauce and homemae breadcrumbs...and let me put it this way, what pops out of the over is damn near to-die-for. Just such a great way to prepare boatloads of celery.
But, the doozie are these cookies. Oatmeal, dried cherries, cardamom, shaved coconut, brown sugar, cinnamon, vanilla and an egg. Add a little flour and baking powder. Bake for about 12 minutes and while they are filling the house with some heavenly scents, toss some almond milk in the freezer. Once done, put on jams and call it a day.
