Upcoming Freezer Meal Workshop

Use the drop-down below to register for my upcoming "Get Ready for Summer" Freezer Meal Workshop! Choose from Easy Breezy Slow Cooker or Backyard BBQ. Both are great summery menus and I have only 4 available for each menu. If you do them both, you get a $10 discount! (See below for menu options and more info).

Menu Choices

Here's how it works:

You pick from the above two menu choices of 10 large meals each (see below for what you get and what you make with each), or you can choose to do them both for a $10 discount.

You get a grocery list and prep info via email from me which explains how to prepare everything before you come for the workshop (it goes faster when everyone's done some chopping and prepping at home). It's all super flexible and can be adjusted to suit your family's needs.

You come to the workshop with your prepped ziplock bags, where we put everything together with the Wildtree blends and sauces and a few other things. I usually have snacks and wine or other drinks.

You take home your prepared meals with cooking directions and also all your leftover Wildtree products from your workshop bundle. There is usually enough leftover product to make many of the meals again!

All in all, with the workshop bundle you purchase and the groceries you provide, it still comes out to only about $3-4 per serving. Plus my favorite part - the time savings and no-stress dinners!

Mason Jar Salad Social!

I don't know about you, but with this warmer weather we've been having in my neck of the woods, I'm craving salads!! I have heard a lot about these mason jar salads from Wildtree friends, but haven't jumped in on doing them yet, because I wanted to make sure they were really good first. Well it sounds like people are loving these, all across the country, so now I want to offer this Salad Social idea to you! I'd love for you to be among the first of my friends and customers to try it out and let me know your thoughts. 
So, I'm hosting a Salad Social at my house on Sunday, March 12th @ 4pm! 
Here's how it works:
1. Register by Sunday, Feb 26th for the Salad Bundle ($49.95 with tax and shipping), which includes 4 gluten-free, organic Wildtree salad dressings which you'll use to make 5 different salads at the Social, and then you'll take home the remainder to make 40+ more salads and/or other dishes at home!
2. I'll send out a sign up list for everyone to pick and bring various ingredients, such as lettuce, tomatoes, chopped veggies, cheeses, beans, grains, etc. These will be community ingredients that we all share for our various salads. (If you prefer not to share, you can bring your own ingredients for your own 5 salads).
3. You'll come to the Salad Social with 5 quart-sized mason jars and the prepped ingredients you signed up for on the sign up list.
4. We put everything together based on some ideas I'll have here, and we'll hang out, drink wine and sample some newer Wildtree products, including the Zuppa Tuscana (Tuscan soup).
5. Take your salads home, put in the fridge, and use for healthy lunches at home or at work the upcoming week! Or you can use as a side dish to accompany a freezer meal dinner! 

Comment with any questions or to register (I'll get you the info). If you cannot come that day, you can still order the bundle and have it shipped direct to your house, and I'll get you all the instructions you need to do this on your own. I'd still love your feedback as a "New Idea Tester" on this concept!
I'm super excited about this and can't wait to make some fresh salads with you!

Shredded Beef Enchiladas the Wildtree Way

These are SO good! I should have taken a picture but we devoured them.

For the Beef (I like to make in the slow cooker):
5 lb chuck roast or similar
1/2 large onion or 1 small onion, roughly chopped
1 cup water
1 Tbs Wildtree Adobo blend

Add all ingredients to slow cooker, cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours or until meat is super tender and easily shreds. Discard any bones, reserve the broth, and shred the meat (I like to leave the onions in with the meat).

Red Enchilada Sauce:
3 Tbs Natural Wildtree Grapeseed Oil
1/4 cup chili powder
1 Tbs flour
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp ground cayenne pepper (more for more heat)
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups reserved beef broth from slow cooker
6 oz tomato paste
(OR, if you prefer, just get Wildtree's Tia Rosa's Red Enchilada Sauce - it's super good, too!)

Heat the oil in a small/med saucepan. Add all the dry ingredients and whisk to combine. When fragrant (after about a min), whisk in the broth and tomato paste. Whisk until the mix boils and everything is smooth.

To assemble:

Fill large tortilla with shredded beef, roll up and place in greased 9x12 pan. This makes a lot and you'll probably be able to fill a dozen tortillas. I put six in one pan and six in another. Pour enchilada sauce over the top and then top generously with shredded cheese (I like cheddar or jack or pepper jack). Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for about 20 mins or until heated through and cheese is melted.

Serve with beans and rice, if desired. I like to heat whole pinto beans in their liquid with some Wildtree Adobo blend. Or black beans with Wildtree's Chipotle Lime Rub. So good!

Chicken and Butternut Squash Skillet Pie

This recipe was adapted from Bon Appetit:

Chicken and Butternut Squash Skillet Pie

2-3 Tbs bacon grease or grapeseed oil, for greasing pan
2 large chicken thighs, chopped into small cubes
1 small onion, diced
1 small butternut squash, peeled, seeded and cubed (peel with a potato peeler - it's easy, then cut in half, scoop out seeds, and chop)
1 small bunch kale, center ribs discarded, leaves chopped
2 tsp minced garlic (about 2 large cloves)
1 Tbs Wildtree Herb Grilling Marinade
1 Tbs Wildtree Chicken or Vegetable Bouillon Base
1/4 cup flour
2-3 cups water
salt and pepper to taste
grated nutmeg to taste

1 sheet frozen puff pastry, defrosted
1 egg, beaten with a bit of water

Preheat oven to 425 F. Heat oil or grease in large cast iron skillet. Add chicken and saute about 5-7 mins, stirring occasionally, until browned but not cooked through. Add onion, squash and kale. Saute another 5-10 mins or until onions are translucent and tender. Add garlic, Wildtree spices, and flour. Stir one minute. Add water slowly, while stirring. Use as much water as you want until your gravy is as thick or thin as you want it. I did about 2.5 cups. Add salt, pepper and nutmeg to taste. Simmer, stirring often, until squash begins to soften, about 10 mins. Add more water if needed. Turn off heat.

Roll out puff pastry using a bit of flour to keep from sticking. Place over skillet and brush with egg wash. Vent by cutting a few slits in the top. Place in preheated oven for 15 mins. Turn oven down to 375 F and continue baking another 10-15 mins or until deep golden brown. Remove from oven and let rest 5-10 mins before serving, if you can stand the wait!
