Now available for pick up at Whole Foods Columbia.
I have blogged many times about the locally raised turkeys that we order every year for Thanksgiving. From Maple Lawn Farm in Fulton MD.
Last night we had a tasting menu event at the new Whole Foods in Columbia. They announced that they have arranged to sell for in store pick up the same local turkeys we can get at the farm. This adds Whole Foods to the list that includes Boarmans and Roots in our local area.
In fact, Whole Foods has all sorts of options from uncooked to oven ready to fully prepared feasts.
Let’s just say we didn’t have to cook dinner last night.
I think my favorite of the evening though, was the dessert. I will probably be getting one of these to take to my family’s Thanksgiving. Pumpkin pie on the bottom. Pumpkin mousse on top.
From soup to nuts, and including some packages that are already cooked. For those who are pressed for time, or cooking area, or are wary of roasting a whole turkey themselves, Whole Foods joins other area restaurants and food stores in offering a complete meal, ready for reheating and serving.
This was our first time attending one of the Whole Foods tastings. I liked quite a few of the dishes, particularly the cream of mushroom soup, the cranberry orange relish, and of course, that pie.
For those living in the area, a new option to make Thanksgiving a little easier.
But, for those who know me, I will be cooking that Maple Lawn farm turkey with my favorite sausage dressing (thanks to Boarmans for their sausage). I will be using Whole Foods for their stuffing cubes, brining kit and nuts from their bulk selections.
Thanks to Mia, Katie and Chef Patrick for hosting the Howard County Food Bloggers yesterday.
Hi Annie, Great post! And great to see you and Jack out last night. My faves of the evening were the sweet potatoes, stuffing (not usually something I’m excited about), mushroom soup and cranberry relish. See you around.
