A recap of the last two weeks: I lived off yogurt, soup, mashed potatoes, and fish. I can’t tell you how excited I am to eat again. I planned what I consider to be a fantastic menu this week and have spent the past few days cooking up a storm and essentially binge eating. (tisk tisk)
This weeks CSA contents include: corn, cilantro, stir fry green, salad mix, pears, persimmons, and butternut squash.
Saturday: Halloween. Leftover grilled veges and cabbage salad. Sugar cookies for dessert. Recipe to follow.
Sunday: Tacos! So good. You’d never know they are 2/3 mashed potatoes.
Monday: Honey-cilantro salmon with brocoli and rice. This recipe is from Bon Appetit Magazine. It was super easy to make and delicious. I love one pot dinners.
Tuesday: Gayle’s Spinach-Gorgonzola. It is fabulous.
Wednesday: White beans and green bake with salad. This recipe is also from Bon Appetit. I am not a big fan of greens and tomatoes, but I’m willing to try it. I am sick of putting greens on pasta or slathering them in garlic and cheese.
Thursday: Butternut squash soup, garlic bread, and salad. I love squash soup. Some people find the texture unappetizing but I love it.
Friday: Pretty sure I’m going out for dinner as I leave for Japan at 540am the next morning. Eep.
As for Halloween this year, I wasn’t feeling festive. Two Halloween parties and I opted to stay home and pass out candy. The children were ridiculously cute.
