Menu Plan 1/5-1/12

In case you missed it, my menu plan for this week is embedded as a PDF in my post about menu planning, below.  For consistency’s sake I’m reposting it here in the usual format, too.

Here’s what we’re getting in our Local Box:

• Grapefruit – G&S
• Green Onions – Naegelin
• Oriental Turnips – Acadian
• Supergreens (mustard or kale) – Naegelin
• Daikon Radish – My Father’s Farm
• Purple Mizuna – My Father’s Farm
• Cauliflower – J&B
• Apples – Apple Country
• Cilantro – Acadian
• Crimini Mushrooms- Kitchen Pride

And here’s what I’m planning to make:

Wednesday: Beer Braised Bratwurst and Greens
Thursday: Indian Saag (Mustard Green Curry), rice
Friday: Scotch Broth, apple oat muffins
Saturday: Soba Noodle Salad with Mizuna
Sunday: Date night! Food trailer exploration on South Congress
Monday: Cauliflower gratin, broiled grapefruit
Tuesday: Leftover awareness night!
