meal plan – august 14, 2017


Happy middle of August, everyone! My CSA stash is screaming Texas summer this week – okra, eggplant, peppers, squash – so the bulk of my meals will focus on using all that up. Potatoes and carrots and beets will work their way in as snacks or hold up in storage for use next week.

I also made my way to the downtown library one last time to visit the cookbook stacks ahead of the closing of the third floor. Austin is getting a shiny new library in October and books from the non-fiction collection (3rd floor) will be in transition until then. Lots of inspiration from that last haul in this week’s meal plan. Link to books at bottom of post.

Harira (from Near and Far)

Happy cooking and stay cool!
