Fall Favorites & Prepared MealsOctober 31, 2013
Ghosts walk up and down the street, witches are around every corner and zombies roam freely. No it’s not a nightmare, it’s Halloween! It’s the one time a year when you can dress up as your favorite characters or celebrities and not be judged. However the days surrounding Halloween can be hectic, especially for parents. Between picking the perfect costume, to baking mummy cupcakes to preparing for the ultimate kids holiday – Trick or Treat. With all of that to think about and sugar-highs to contend with, parents have a lot on their plate.
In the midst of the chaos, sometimes it’s nice to have a few things you don’t have to think too much about, like dinner. Getting dinner on the table before your kids start to fill a pillow case full of sweets is an admirable goal, but sometimes very difficult. At The Meat House we offer a variety of oven-ready and prepared sides, designed to make your life a little easier.
One of our customer favorites is the Big Moe’s bacon wrapped meatloaf. Our butchers make these daily with freshly ground beef, Big Moe’s BBQ sauce and wrap it all in delicious slab bacon. Everything’s better with bacon, right? Consider pairing with our prepared seasoned veggies or if you’re craving even more bacon, our bacon and onion Brussels sprouts are always a crowd pleaser (yes even with kids!)
Another delicious oven-ready item is our beef florentine. It’s almost as pretty as it is tasty. Our butchers take juicy flank steak and stuff it with spinach, provolone cheese and bacon for a savory roll up. The best part? The flank steak is leaner and thinner than most cuts of steak, so it takes less time to cook. We recommend cooking at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes per lb.
Lastly, but certainly not least, keep an eye out for some of our seasonal meals, like the popular Harvest Roll. This Meat House original, is a mixture of sweet potatoes, cornbread, baby spinach and mozzarella stuffed into a pork loin. The sweet filling balanced with the rich pork is a perfect autumn meal. This pairs nicely with our roasted red bliss potatoes, already seasoned and ready for you to just heat and serve!
Have other items you’d like to see? Our butchers are always open to suggestions and customizing based on your needs or dietary restrictions. So in the midst of Halloween antics and pre-holiday buzz, don’t be afraid to save a little time and make dinner easier and quicker, yet still yummy. Just don’t blame us when the ghosts show up at your house looking for meatloaf next year instead of chocolate.
*Note, oven ready meals are available in all stores, however Home Meal Replacement (HMR) items such as bacon wrapped meatloaf may vary.
