This Sunday, I have been met with a vegetable drive-by. If you don’t know anyone with a garden, let me show you what it looks like.
So I’ll be producing a full-out Sunday dinner later, and sharing as well (looking at you Complicated Veggie). It’s great to be back in the kitchen, even if I still feel hungry for dinner at 10 pm EST, courtesy of my jet lag.
Weekly Menus this week:
Four-Square Grocery List (which I’ve already shopped for, efficient!):
CSA from Brinkley Farms:
1 lb tomatillos $3.00
2 lbs regular eggplant $3.00
2 pablano peppers $1.00
1 red seedless watermelons $5.00
Sunday: Sunday Dinner
Still pondering the main, but the go-withs include black-eyed peas, cukes and onions, sliced tomatoes, corn on the cob, squash in some format, fried okra, possibly potatoes. The table may beg for mercy, and I may send out invites.
Monday: Fish and Veg
Salmon Cakes and more okra.
May switch this with Thursday so I can make another Mexican Squash Casserole. Otherwise, burritos.
With cukes on the side, probably tomato sandwiches.
Thursday: Pasta Bake
Great way to lower the veg count.
Friday: Steak and Potatoes or Casserole
This may also be a leftover day, we shall see.
Saturday: Dine out!
I’m feeling either the picnic platter at Crook’s Corner, or a Food Truck Rodeo.
