Thanksgiving Share for Friday, Nov 20!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!! We hope you have a truly wonderful time celebrating, with thanks to God, the bounty we have been given.

We have some fresh herbs coming this time for your turkey. Coral Gables will have all herbs on the bonus table only, none in the regular share. To easily preserve what you don't use right away of your fresh herbs, just put the whole little box, as is, in the freezer and use them as you have need. They will "freeze dry" and be perfectly preserved for future use.

Please bring clean, reusable plastic bags to your host as often as you can, and don't forget your blue bag as well. We still have honey, coconut oil, and organic eggs (by pre-order only) available at all sites when requested. Please let your host know ahead if you would like one of those items, and we will get it to them.

Green Beans
Sweet Onions
Celery (Doral gets Spinach)
Lettuce, 2 heads
Mushrooms (Doral gets Carrots)

Roasted Delicata Squash Stuffed with White Beans, Greens & Sage

an Eggs on Sunday original

2 delicata squash, halved and seeds scooped out (you can save them and roast them for snacking!)
1 large garlic clove, minced
extra-virgin olive oil
1 15-oz can small white beans (such as navy beans), drained and rinsed
about 4 large handfuls greens – baby spinach, chopped chard, chopped collards, etc. – washed and spun dry
1 tablespoon minced fresh sage leaves
1/2 cup fresh breadcrumbs
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place the squash halves (cut side up) on a sheet pan or in a baking dish. Drizzle the surfaces with some olive oil, and season with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper. Bake in the oven until the flesh is tender when pierced with a knife or fork, about 1 hour. Remove the squash halves from the oven and set aside.

Meanwhile, make your filling: heat a little extra-virgin olive oil (about 1-2 Tbsp) in a saute pan over medium heat until hot, then add the minced garlic and saute for about 30 seconds, until fragrant. Add the greens and saute until wilted. Now add your drained, rinsed white beans and continue cooking the mixture until the beans are heated through. Stir in the chopped fresh sage, season to taste with coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper, and set aside to cool slightly.

Now you'll fill the squash halves: first, preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. In a small bowl, mix together the breadcrumbs and grated parmesan cheese. When the bean and green mixture has cooled slightly, stir half of the breadcrumb mixture into it — this will help bind the filling together slightly. Divide this filling mixture between the cooked squash halves, mounding it in each.*

Sprinkle the remaining breadcrumb and cheese mixture over the top of the filled squash halves. Drizzle some olive oil over the top of each squash half. Return the pan to the oven and bake the squash halves until the topping is golden, about another 15 minutes or so (check a little bit before so the topping doesn't burn.

Serves 4.
