We’re in the holiday spirit here at Mixed Greens and as a way of expressing our appreciation to all of you, we’re giving away 6 of our 2011 calendars. All you have to do is leave a comment telling us about your favorite seasonal food for 2010. Feel free to elaborate on the season, the setting and the deliciousness of it all, if you’re so inclined. On New Year’s Day, we’ll draw 6 names from the comment hat. Be sure to leave a correct email address with your comment so we can contact you if you’re one of the lucky winners.
For those of you unfamiliar with our fabulous calendars, trust me, you’re going to want one of your own. They feature a photograph of a seasonal food for each month along with a recipe on the back of every page. The clear jewel box case doubles as a stand which sits nicely on your desk and is also handy for viewing recipes while cooking in the kitchen. We’ve used 100% post consumer recycled paper and will ship it to you in a recyclable cardboard mailer.
To get the conversation started, I have to mention the incredible winter carrots I’ve been getting from Whistling Train Farm recently. We’ve been traveling back and forth to Orcas Island fairly often and I usually pack a bag of carrots to snack on. Plain, unadorned except for a sprinkling of sea salt, they’re unbelievably sweet and crunchy. So simple.
There you go, we’re looking forward to hearing from you. If you just can’t wait or want to purchase a calendar as a gift, we’re selling them on the blog too. Wishing you all very happy holidays filled with wonderful memories. We’ll be back soon after the New Year.
