Just grabbed the CSA haul, and it was a big one this week!
We got a huge bunch of shallots, tons of mustard greens, turnips, carrots, loads of lettuce, and Chinese cabbage. Now I need to figure out how to make these all fit together into meals for the week.
Tonight the kids are having stromboli since I have the fixings on hand, they will have salad with homemade croutons.
Tomorrow I am making steaks on the grill with roasted root veggies (turnips, carrots, potatoes) and salad and homemade bread..
Wednesday will be chicken on the grill, the mustard greens, couscous and homemade bread.
Thursday will be a baked pasta dish, homemade bread and salad.
Friday will be shrimp with chinese cabbage and brown rice, not sure if we will do a stir fry or if I will just grill the shrimp and cook the cabbage....we will see.
Saturday and Sunday are still up in the air, one day will probably be a leftover day, maybe breakfast for dinner another night.
The best part of eating this was is that there is very little waste, and since most if not all of the items are on hand, it costs me next to nothing to feed the family. The bread is easy, I make one batch a week and get enough for four meals usually with some left for croutons. We have a huge supply of meat on hand, a lot of beef from the cow we got in January and I have been stocking us well on chicken and a little bit of pork, we are not huge pork eaters. Whenever chicken is on sale, I buy enough for at least two weeks worth or meals, and pack it and freeze it. Now if only I can get the pantry and freezer organized, maybe this Friday.
