Meal Plan 12/1-12/7

My fridge is finally returning to normal after the glut of Thanksgiving dishes last weekend.  This coincides nicely with the arrival of winter greens here in Austin, since big leafy greens take up a lot of fridge real-estate! In this week’s Local Box I’m getting delicious citrus along with three types of greens: turnip greens, bibb lettuce, and bok choy.  This will be my first time preparing bok choy, so I’m going to try a simple preparation with idiot-proof instructions from Jaden Hair of Steamy Kitchen, one of my favorite food bloggers. It’s not in the local box, but I’ll be eating Challah from UT’s Chapter of Challah for Hunger tomorrow night. This is the last week of the semester those guys will be baking, so I don’t want to miss out on the last loaves of the season. 🙂  Happy cooking, friends!

Here’s what’s coming in my Local Box from Greenling:

  • Assorted Peppers – Lundgren
  • Tangerines – Orange Blossom
  • Watermelon Radish – Fruitful Farm
  • Bok Choy – Naegelin
  • Bibb Lettuce – Bella Verdi
  • Green Beans – Naegelin
  • Turnip Greens – Acadian
  • Rainbow Carrots – Animal
  • Cilantro – Acadian

Here’s what I’m making:

Wednesday: Bibb Lettuce & Radish Salad with Classic Vinaigrette Dressing, Challah from Challah for Hunger on the UT Campus
Thursday: Stir Fried Bok Choy with Ginger & Garlic
Friday: Enchillada Casserole with leftover turkey meat & assorted peppers
Saturday: Braised Pork Belly with Turnip Greens, Roasted Radishes
Sunday: Holiday party at a friend’s house
Monday: Turkey and dumplings, roasted rainbow carrots & green beans with citrus-sage glaze
Tuesday: Leftover Awareness Day!

  1. You’re so good with your menu planning. I’ve been planning to menu plan for some time now but seem to have a hard time planning anything. I should really give it a go.

  2. Menu planning will change your life! if you can plan out a sweater pattern and follow through, planning a week’s worth of menus is a no brainer!

  3. Leftover Awareness Day!!!

  4. My man, and chef of the house, is Asian and swears by Bok Choy. I’m sure you will love cooking with it.
