Any good farmstands along 1-5 to Chico? Looking for good fresh (am I dreaming for organic)veggies to buy for a travel-to Thanksgiving dinner in Chico. Chico is mainly big chain markets, and I think their farmer's market is shut down for the year.
Any veggie side ideas? The kitchen is small, with limited culinary tools and pantry, and will already be full and busy. So ideas for anything I can make ahead or is simple would be best. I keep getting stuck on things that have to be roasted, and I don't think the stove will be available.
Thinking of maybe a salad of apples, fennel and....? with a sweet-sour vinaigrette, but open to other suggestions. Mainly want good fibrous veggies that perhaps could be made ahead in some form. (Will be there the day ahead) Full recipes would be helpful, or at least proportions.
You all are so inventful and creative, I know you'll be able to help! :)
