January can be a hard time for many in New England. It is typically the month we see the coldest temperatures of the year and this year isn’t any different. You might find yourself dreaming of warmer weather, beaches and food that would be enjoyed if on a tropical (or warm climate) vacation!
This month our Farm to Table bag included recipes that we thought could help to escape the winter chill, even if just for a meal, that are full of delicious flavors! We wanted to share a couple with you!
Mediterranean Lamb Shanks
Did the word “Mediterranean” draw you in?!? Yes, please.
Don’t let the lamb scare you away. We know some people are a little unsure of trying lamb, but give it a shot. We think you’ll be pleasantly surprised. The flavors in this dish will have your taste buds thanking you!
Taco Bowl with Mango Salsa
I don’t think I have ever met anyone that didn’t enjoy mango. This is a kid-friendly meal that features our Fairmont Market ground beef and is a dinner that can be pulled together even after a long day at work. And of course, no taco meal is complete without Cabot cheese. This recipe can easily be adapted using what you have or want with additional veggies or toppings.
Our monthly Farm to Table bags feature 3-5 recipes and the meat and Cabot products that go along with them. We have the option to buy as a one-time purchase or as a 6 month subscription which saves you 15% per month. It is a great way to try new recipes featuring our products.
What are some of your favorite meals you enjoy while on vacation? If you are going somewhere warm this winter, enjoy! If not, try some recipes that will help you dream of a trip you wish you were taking! Maybe even throw a little umbrella into your drink. 😉
