My farmer and our daughter's farmer. :-)
Fall Harvest on the farm requires lots of planning and preparation in the kitchen. You never know if you'll have 1, 2 or 5 or more hungry farmers to feed or if you'll be taking the meals to the field or if you have to run the grain cart and still provide the food for everyone. I've been doing a lot of prep and putting things in the freezer for this years meals.
Here’s one of my favorites to put in the freezer and have on hand for harvest and the winter months. A recipe you can put in the freezer and bake frozen when you have farmers to feed, unexpected company or want a fresh coffee cake.
