Last night I attended “A Holiday Tasting for Our Favorite Bloggers” at Whole Foods Market Del Mar. It was a preview of what Whole Foods Market will have available during the holiday season for simple already-made side dishes, last minute pickups and holiday catering.
I have no objections to eating Thanksgiving food more than one time a year 😉 Especially when I don’t have to cook it.
Holiday dishes included:
- Turkey with a mushroom gravy
- Farro with pomegranate seeds, celery and all-spice vinaigrette
- Stuffed acorn squash
- Delicata squash filled with yams, celery root and apple
- Brussel sprouts and pancetta
- Cheese plate with cranberry cheddar cheese and triple-cream brie with cranberry chutney
Seriously, if you would rather not slave away in your kitchen all day, definitely consider these options (or similar) from your local Whole Foods Market. It will make your life a whole hell of a lot easier, and I promise it will taste – <–that far from homemade.
I also met Jayla, the creative genius behind Bon Affair. If you know me, you know I don’t drink a lot. I hate the feeling of being unproductive the day after drinking, so I just never do. And, well that was the thought process behind Bon Affair. It’s a very light wine spritzer, with no added sugar, and half the calories of regular wine. It’s basically wine infused with purified carbonated water, with added electrolytes and grape seed extract. It has 6.5% ABV and a refreshing crisp taste. I can already see a holiday sangria recipe in the near future!
Stay tuned for some more Whole Foods Market Del Mar holiday fun coming soon!
