November is a month that brings thoughts of thankfulness and a feeling of appreciation for all of our blessings. At Daddy Pete’s Plant Pleaser, we want to say how thankful we are to all of you for buying and using our products, and for allowing us to share ideas with you each month in our blog. We love to help you grow…and we are blessed when you allow us to help you farm with Daddy Pete’s products!
November is also a time of gathering with family and friends to share a meal together and to celebrate the holiday season. So whether you have traditional family recipes or if you are starting from scratch this year, here are some recipes that will make use of some of the items you have harvested in your garden, raised bed, or patio containers. You may have frozen or canned fruits and vegetables that will work great for your Thanksgiving Day meal prep!
For breakfast we have a Whole30 Breakfast Casserole, a Berry Yogurt Breakfast Parfait, or the Perfect Biscuits with Homemade Blackberry Jalapeno Jelly. If you are having friends and family over to watch the Thanksgiving Day parades or ballgames, we have several snack ideas for munching while you watch: Turkey Vegetable Tray, Roasted Eggplant Hummus, Caramelized Onion and Cream Cheese Stuffed Peppers, Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus, or Maple Pumpkin Fall Harvest Trail Mix.
For your main, traditional Thanksgiving meal, here are some recipe options to get your chef juices flowing: Fall Harvest Salad with Pumpkin Goddess Dressing; Citrus and Herb Butter Roasted Turkey; Sage Apple Cranberry Dressing; Mediterranean Mashed Potatoes; Cheddar Green Bean Casserole; Zucchini and Squash Au Gratin; Better Broccoli Casserole; Roasted Brussel Sprouts, Cinnamon, Butternut Squash, Pecans, & Cranberries; and Nantucket Corn Pudding. Then for dessert, we have Sweet Potato Pie with Marshmallow Meringue, Easy Pecan Pie Recipe, and Cranberry Fluff. Need a creative way to finish off your leftover turkey? Try a Turkey, Cranberry, and Walnut Salad or Turkey Pot Pie Soup.
If Thanksgiving weekend takes you outdoors for early Christmas decorating, don’t forget that November is a great month for pruning deciduous trees, planting spring bulbs, amending beds for spring planting, or refreshing raised beds. For these projects, we recommend using Daddy Pete’s Composted Cow Manure and Daddy Pete’s Planting Mix. If you haven’t fertilized your lawn for the Fall months, November is still an excellent time to spread Daddy Pete’s Barnyard Fertilizer pellets on your yard. It will not burn and it’s safe for pets and children. Just set your spreader to fully open or one position back from fully open.
And don’t forget your furry friends as temperatures begin to drop. Daddy Pete’s Roasted Sawdust is an excellent, dry bedding for dogs, horses, goats, and other livestock animals.
