Baby it’s cold outside, isn’t it?!? With that in mind I’m having fun with some of my favorite hearty tummy warming recipes, like the Meatball Casserole pictured here. It’s on the menu this week, along with Lula’s Hunter’s Chili with Venison and Beef, served up with our famous Moist Corny Corn Bread.
Further down the page, take a sneak peak at our Creamy Pear & Celeriac Soup – an accidental moment of brilliance on my part a few years ago when trying to figure out what to do with some softening pears. I figured, apples go in soup all the time (have you had Lula’s ABC Soup?!?). I was playing with Celery Root (Celeriac, which is different than the celery that went into this week’s LulaTuna Salad wink wink). Some sage from the garden and voila, a masterpiece was born. I’m bored with chicken so I’m offering an old family Pork Chop recipe this week – updated and refined by Lula of course! Browned with oregano and garlic, then put in a slow oven with wild mushrooms, these bone in chops almost melt in your mouth, and you’ll want to drink the sauce! These are served with Lula’s Herbed Smashed Potatoes – another stick to your ribs, winter defying satisfying option. You can see ALL of this week’s options here.
Again, Happy New Year, and a wish for all that with the passage of each day, we feel safer and more love than ever before!
