Episode 255: Planning Around Vegetables, Instant Pot Chicken, and Ground Turkey

In food news this week, we talk about the recent news that the Philly Farm and Food Fest has been canceled.

In What’s for Dinner, we talk about planning our meals around the vegetables in our kitchens (Marisa was overloaded with bok choy and spent a week looking for ways to use them up).

In How’d you Make That, Joy revisits her Instant Pot chicken method and reminds us all that it’s a really great way to set yourself up for a week’s worth of tasty food.

Now, a controversial topic. Yes or no to ground turkey? Marisa loves it, but Joy can’t stand it.

And finally, in What We’re Loving, the magical onion salt from Trader Joe’s.

Episode 252: Yogurt Flatbreads, Nearly Meatless Meatballs, and Thanksgiving Prep

In food news, we chatted about how Weight Watchers has rebranded as WW in an attempt to move out of the diet space and into the health and wellness one.

In our “What’s for Dinner” segment, we talk about the yogurt flatbreads from the new Milk Street Tuesday Nights cookbook. They are excellent, as is the entire book.

In our “How’d You Make That?” segment, Joy talks us through the batch of meatballs she made recently that contained nearly no meat, but were entirely delicious.

Next, we talked about some of the little things you can start doing now to help get yourself ready for Thanksgiving (we realize it’s six weeks away, but a little prep now will prevent madness come November).

And in What We’re Loving this week, we share our mutual love of plastic deli containers.
