Meals for the First Week of March

Greens at the Ferry Building Farmers Market 2.20.10
This afternoon I started to think I might have bought too much at the market today (combined with what we're already growing) so I had to do a little planning to figure out how to use it all. We're trying to be better about planning ahead. It helps us eat more fruits and vegetables, whole grains, less meat, etc. We're not perfect by any means, but we're definitely improving! Here's what's on deck for this week:

Sunday Supper
Grilled Lemon Chicken (made with boneless skinless thighs under the broiler)
Cannellini beans with sage & garlic
Greens from the garden with mustard vinaigrette and parmesan
Blood Orange Upside Down Cake

Monday
Cauliflower "bisque" with roasted baby brussel sprouts
Bitter greens from the garden with blood orange vinaigrette, goat cheese, pine nuts and golden raisins

Tuesday
Out to the Movies (to see Up in the Air - as part of our quest to see all the best picture nominated movies before Thursday.)

Wednesday
Old School Turkey Tacos
with avocado, scallions, lettuce, cheese and hot sauce
Refried Beans

Thursday
Tuscan Bean Soup with Bitter Greens (slow cooker recipe)
Curly Endive Salad with mustard vinaigrette, parmesan and croutons

Friday
Mexican takeout

Saturday
Beef Curry with Toasted Spices

  4. I think Jora might be right, Alice. Bryan told me that before you came along, it was all Domino's Pizza and Twinkees for Jora.

  7. Hey, don't knock the Kraft Mac&Cheese. I think that's the only hot meal I had as a child in button factory I called home. To this day, my favorite kind of cheese is . . . "orange"
