One the pieces of finally "settling down" (at least for me) is renewing my love of cooking and doing it much more often. I signed up for a CSA box, which definitely forces me to try new recipes, and I have fallen in love with the flour aisle at Rainbow Grocery. Always the planner, I have also started a routine of mapping out where the week is going (at least culinarily) once I get the list of veggies in my latest box. So why not share it? Here's what I ate last week (plus a few days from this week):
- Wednesday: Polenta with fresh tomato sauce
- Thursday: Nobody's home! Leftovers/eat what you will
- Friday: Pizza! Sausage and olives
- Saturday: Sara's working until 6 or 7...
So she's making breakfast instead!
Oat Bran Pancakes
- Sunday: Squash Polenta
Mixed Greens Salad
- Monday: Leftovers
- Tuesday: Cabbage
- Wednesday: ????
I hope this will inspire you to have fresh, seasonal fun in your own kitchen. I'll post more in-depth about the squash polenta later - it was delicious! And eventually I should be up and running on flickr again, with some great pics to supplement the not-so-descriptive menu above. In the meantime, happy eating!
