Holiday Meals Made Easier Thanks to Whole Foods
Thanksgiving and the holidays are my favorite time of year. I love getting together with my family and just enjoying time catching up, playing board games and enjoying some delicious food. The food is definitely one of the highlights because everyone is always trying their best recipes and old family favorites. The only thing I dislike about the holidays is all the pressure and stress of getting everything done and feeling like I would rather just sit down with the kids.
Sunday, I was invited to go visit Whole Foods in Hyannis to check out the Holiday Menu, sample some of it and see what I thought. I admit the ease of having the work already done for me plus no mess or time spent cleaning up certainly appeals to me plus the food was delicious! As a huge cheese fan, I was immediately drawn to the delicious looking baked brie with apple, cranberry and raisin on top. As soon as I tasted it I knew I had to have it for dinner this weekend! It comes frozen and all you have to do is pop it in the oven. I definitely will be adding this to my holiday meal shopping list and will unashamedly take full credit for making it myself to anyone who asks. It really is that good and perfect for an appetizer!
We moved on to sample some other delicious foods including green beans with crispy shallots, vegan roasted cauliflower, vegan lentil & mushroom stuffing and my personal favorite mashed potatoes rutabaga. I have no idea what rutabaga is or what it normally tastes like, but these mashed potatoes were the best I have ever had. I am responsible for the mashed potatoes this year and I am seriously contemplating ordering some and again passing off as my idea.
Last but certainly not least was the delicious roast turkey which Ethan gave a thumbs up. He is a super picky eater and he got several samples of turkey and declared it the best ever. All of these foods even the tasty pumpkin pie for dessert are sure to be a hit at any Thanksgiving table this year. I recommend giving Whole Foods in Hyannis a call and preorder something to make your life just a little easier. Whether you are cooking the meal or bringing a dish, order it ahead and spend more time with the kids. These meals give you one less thing to worry about! Check out the flyer below and be sure to order asap (orders must be made by the Monday before Thanksgiving).
