Gentle Readers, you will be shocked to note that this week’s menu involves a whole lot of vegetables. Yes, to bring balance to the force, greens will lead the charge. One quick note from yesterday’s N.C. State Fair (full report on consumption and some rocking fried chicken coming later this week): Honey Cotton Candy.

So here’s the Weekly Menu, heavy on veggies and leftovers:

Oldie but goodie, using up stuff in the fridge!
