Meal Plan 10/6-10/12

I can’t believe it is October already!  This is one of my favorite times of the year in Austin because the weather is so fantastic.  I also love the wide variety of produce that’s in season in Texas this time of year.  We’re still getting a lot of my favorite summer foods (okra, limes, basil, cucumbers) plus some delicious fall goodies (apples, squash, sweet potatoes) too.

Here’s what I’m getting

  • Golden or Red Delicious Apples – Apple Country
  • Limes – G&S groves
  • Okra – Bradshaw Farms
  • Basil – Yard Gardens
  • Assorted Peppers – Lundgren
  • Sweet Potatoes – Naegelin
  • Bibb Lettice – Bella Verdi
  • Butternut Squash – Massey Farm
  • Cucumbers – Animal Farm

Here’s what I’m making

Wednesday: Bhindi Masala (Spicy Okra Curry) with Jasmine Rice
Thursday: Bibb Lettuce Salad with Blue Cheese, Apples, and Pecans
Friday: Peperonata served over whole wheat penne pasta
Saturday: Beer braised sausage and kale, sweet potato fries
Sunday: Creamy Cucumber Soup with Grilled Salmon
Monday: Butternut Squash Macaroni and Cheese
Tuesday: Leftover Butternut Squash Mac and Cheese

In all fairness, I might not actually make any of the dishes above that contain cucumbers or basil.  I love making cucumber basil cocktails, so there probably won’t be much cucumber or basil (or vodka) left in the fridge by dinner on Sunday.
