…what's cooking in my kitchen

Here’s one way to make menu planning a little easier… April 11, 2013

let someone else pick the ingredients! 🙂

We recently joined a CSA for a local farm.   This was the first week of getting a box of goodies.  In the box this week:

  • Kale
  • Sweet potatoes
  • Peach jam
  • Strawberry jelly
  • Pepper relish
  • Pecans
  • One lonely green pepper

Recipes we’re making with it this week:

Wednesday: Strawberry Avocado Kale Salad with Bacon and grilled chicken — pretty good, we loved the strawberry/kale combination

Thursday: Pinto beans and cornbread with pepper relish; Kale Salad (with dried fruit/nut/homemade vinaigrette) — we used almonds, craisins, and golden raisins

Friday: Eating out!

Saturday:  Sausage, Potato, and Kale Soup — aka a remade Olive Garden Zuppa Toscana

Sunday: Grilled Chicken, Sweet Potatoes, Zucchini

Monday: Grilled Bratwurst/Peppers/Onions & Corn on the Cob

Tuesday: leftover soup

Hoping strawberries are ready next week but thinking it’ll be a little longer… I’m glad to be back on track with cooking again!
