As a retail manager, Thanksgiving marks the beginning of the busiest time of year for me. I rarely spend holidays with my family, but I did get to have a quick visit at home last week where we had a faux thanksgiving. My mom and I did some holiday shopping and then spent a few hours in the kitchen making a few favorite recipes and experimenting on an amazing pasture raised organic chicken from TrueCost Farm. We ended up with delicious new dish and a few tweaks for the next time.
Wild rice is a staple in Minnesota. Its hard to go into a grocery store or co-op without encountering the locally grown grain. This recipe is a staple from Lunds’ deli, one of the grocery stores in Minneapolis. Its insanely easy and just as yummy! Its a great dish to warm you up as the weather gets colder.
