The Bird and Fixings


Me, I don’t mind the cooking marathon, but I do mind the schlepping. So, this year, like last, I’ll order all the bulky stuff for doorstep delivery from CT Farm Fresh Express: an organic turkey, white and sweet potatoes, squash, onions, Brussels sprouts, cranberries and organic herbs. You don’t have to stop there; order your breads, butter, desserts and even flowers (from Roses for Autism) through CTFFE.

Newcomer Sow Fresh Organics will deliver a box of organic produce, too, and if you gather a few friends and order together you can save the delivery charge under their Neighborhood Coop program. The medium-size veggie and fruit box (pictured) showed up on my doorstep at 6am, filled with a colorful mix of organic arugula, kale, onions, carrots, Brussels sprouts, plums, pears, bananas and a couple of pumpkins with a sweet hand-written note. Oh, and a bag of Seashore Multigrain Chips (I couldn’t help myself, they were on sale!).

And we love this: during the month of November, Sow Fresh is donating 3% of sales to the Red Cross. NOTE: Sow Fresh accepts orders Thursday through Monday, they’re out at their farms Tuesday and Wednesday, so wait until tomorrow to place an order.
