Here's what you get: the box includes ingredients for all of the following; brown-sugar glazed turkey and gravy, Martha's classic stuffing with dried cherries and Martha's mom's perfect mashed potatoes. It also contains all the ingredients for roasted root vegetables with brown butter, sage and almonds, green beans with shallots and lemon and, for dessert, spiced apple oat crisp. (My mouth is watering just thinking about it!) The quantities feed eight to ten people and costs $160 - very reasonable!
If you already have your turkey ordered, or have selected another main dish, Martha & Marley Spoon have also provided a "Just the Sides" box as well, sans turkey. It contains ingredients for all of the aforementioned sides and the dessert, minus the turkey and gravy.
I think it's such a good idea for busy, active families on the go who may not have the time, or the inclination, to think about menu planning and grocery shopping for a Thanksgiving feast. Having everything you need - every ingredient fresh and carefully selected from responsible growers and farmers - delivered right to your door with easy-to-follow recipes and instructions is such a great service. If any of you try it this year, let me know how you thought it was.
(I so wish the service was available in Canada. Even though we've already celebrated Thanksgiving up here, I would definitely throw a fall fete just to try it out!)
Below are photographs of some of the finished dishes:
Martha's Brown Sugar Glazed Turkey and Gravy recipe is so easy to follow, and they include the highest quality 12 to 14 pound free-range, additive-free turkey from Goffle Road Free Range Poultry Farms. http://www.gofflepoultry.com
Martha's mom's Mashed Potatoes that everyone loves. (It's the most popular mashed-potato recipe on marthastewart.com). It includes cream cheese for a heavenly rich mash – and everything you need to make this dish is in the box.
This is the Green Beans with Shallots and Lemon side.
The Roasted Root Vegetables with Brown Butter, Sage and Almonds includes sweet potatoes, carrots, parsnips, pearl onions, garlic and herbs – all topped with decadent brown butter.
The Classic Stuffing with Herbs and Dried Cherries – it can be served inside or outside the turkey. It’s a big favorite at Martha's table!
For dessert – Spiced Apple Oat Crisp. It’s all the delicious flavors of apple pie without the labor intensive dough. This crisp is a wonderful combination of apples, brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg.
