Easy Weeknight Roasted Veggies

posted on November 2nd, 2017 by Leslie Thomas

We all get busy sometimes. And with the holidays approaching, life just seems to get more hectic each day. So coming home to prepare a dinner from scratch for the family isn't always a priority. But greasy and mysterious ingredient take-out isn't always what we want to do either. The simplest solution we can suggest? A hot and juicy hormone and antibiotic-free rotisserie chicken from our stores paired with easy and oh, so flavorful roasted vegetables. Because roasting vegetables like carrots, squash, and potatoes is what you do in the Fall and Winter. Ingredients: 2 lb Yukon Gold potatoes 2 lb.

Halloween 1‑Week Countdown Checklist

posted on October 24th, 2017 by Leslie Thomas

Can you believe Halloween is just one week away? October has already come and {almost} gone. What do your Halloween plans entail? For many of us, the actual night, which falls on a not-so-fun Tuesday this year, will consist of trick-or-treating with our little ones all dressed up in costumes of their choosing. An evening with way too much candy and possible battles to relinquish said candy, it's just one of those holidays the kids can't resist. We have bags upon bags of candy just waiting for you too. Because unless you want to turn off your lights...and maybe the doorbell ringer too, the kids will be a-coming for their treats. And while candy is a Halloween must, there are tons of other fun items to consider too. Full Disclosure: We do not have your scary and elaborate haunted decor or your costumes. But we do have loads of candy, pumpkin craft beer, tabletop decor,  all the fixins' for caramel apples, and of course, every kind of pumpkin you could ever want. Your… Read More

Sausage, Sauerkraut, and Apple Hash for Oktoberfest

posted on September 25th, 2017 by Leslie Thomas

It’s hard to believe that Fall is officially here. Between pumpkin spiced everything and an undeniable urge to pull out all the scarves and booties (speaking to you ladies), the delightfully fragrant and perfectly chilly season full of soups, stews, and crock pot suppers is underway. And with the Autumn time air also comes a tradition that’s rooted in Germany but often celebrated by many here; Oktoberfest. Beer slinging festivals with pretzel and sausage stations are pretty common in big cities and small towns alike. There’s no doubt we’ll be celebrating in our own culinary kinda way as we get further into Fall - but for now, we’re starting with an Oktoberfest Sausage sale and a deliciously easy weeknight kinda meal with those snappy and succulent sausages. Make it tonight...or make it for breakfast this weekend with a fried egg on top - sure, it’s not the authentic German thing to do...but it’s a spectacular addition (trust us on this one).
