food plan – week of jan 11

Our food routine has been thrown to the wind as of late last week. One day after our CSA pick-up, the hubby had to jump on a flight and we were left with a mountain of uncooked produce, one man out. It also happens that he’s the one with the largest appetite in the house. I’m doing my best to keep our produce fresh and am hopeful that most of it will hold out till his return on Tuesday.

The loop we were thrown means that I don’t have the entire week completely mapped out meal-by-meal, but I do have a rough sketch of what I’d like to make. Check out the plan and please let me know what kind of information you’d like to see more of in the menu planning posts on the future.

This leaves me with some turnips and broccoli and I am currently scanning the stash of books in the pantry in hopes of finding some inspiration. Feel free to steer me towards something magical.

Be Kind. Be Patient. Eat Well.
