Simply Organic #ThursdayMoments

with the #feedfeed community


Hard to believe we are already two weeks from Thanksgiving - it seems like just yesterday that we were starting to mention the cooler mornings and sun setting ever so early.

If you’ve ever worked in a food related space, you, like us, have probably been planning Thanksgiving and Holiday cooking since July - but regardless of preplanning, it seems this time of year becomes a frenzy of things we forgot to add, or parties we forgot to schedule.

This year, we are doing things a bit differently - we are partnering with our friends over at Simply Organic to enjoy time with friends and family on Thursdays (TGIT!) and make the most of a simple gathering, shared with friends and family. Weekends this time of year are chaotic and busy, so for us, sharing an #OrganicMoment with friends and family on Thursday is the perfect excuse to celebrate during the week. We’ve partnered with some of our incredibly talented community members to show you how they share their #ThursdayMoments with friends and family.

Be sure to follow along and enjoy your time with family and friends, this Holiday season.

1. Spiced Pepita Brittle by @now_forager


Teresa of @now_forager made this Spiced Pepita Brittle that makes for the perfect salty-sweet snack to enjoy at family gatherings this holiday season. The warm flavors of cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, & ginger complement the sweetness of the brittle and the saltiness of the pepitas. Make a batch for your friends and family this season and watch it disappear from the kitchen in minutes!
