Sides

Roasted winter vegetables w/ rosemary, thyme, & crispy sage

Vegan mashed potatoes w/ olive oil & crispy shallots
If you think cream and butter are required to make amazing mashed potatoes, you are in for a surprise.

7 cup Pyrex
Chicken noodle soup from scratch/ Vegetable noodle soup from scratch
This slowly-simmered soup made from a whole bird provides the right combination of fat, salt, and flavor and produces a fragrant, golden, savory soup you want to eat all week long. The vegetarian version is equally good. Soup is gluten-free.

Notes: This food is carefully cooked and packaged in a facility that uses nuts, wheat, and soy. * Pyrex can be put in a pre-heated oven up to 400 degrees. Do not put under the broiler. Place on soft hot pads or silicone once you remove it from the oven. Never put Pyrex on a hot burner. It will explode. Plastic lids cannot go in the oven. * Pyrex is also freezer safe but make sure to unthaw and bring the dish to room temp before popping it in the oven. Extreme temperature changes can cause it to crack. * Salad dressings that have congealed in the refrigerator can be nuked for 5-10 seconds to liquefy.* Most dishes are better if you cover them with saran wrap before microwaving. It prevents them from drying out. * Salad dressings, and most soups, benefit from a good stir or shake before serving. * Eat seafood within the first few days of delivery for optimum freshness * You can freeze wide-mouth Ball jars as long as there is 1″ of headspace at the top of the jar. Unthaw gradually in the refrigerator. * Please wash your empty dishes before loading them into the cooler. Stack rectangular dishes together and round dishes together when possible. Put lids ON dishes to prevent chipping. Place defrosted ice packs on the bottom .* Thank you! jennifer@littlepinkkitchen.com 303-725-3836.
