Meal Plan 3/3-4/9

Hey y’all. Sorry for my lack of posting lately. I have been pretty sick with mono, and I have lost my will to cook anything besides chicken soup. That compounded with the fact that my husband/sous chef/ blog-helper-extraordinaire is out of the country means things have been pretty bleak in the kitchen as of late. However, I am on reduced work schedule and some sweet drugs, so hopefully I’ll be back in my apron as usual soon. In the meantime I am cooking easy, familiar recipes with my produce.

Here’s what we got in our Local Box yesterday:

  • Basil (potted Plant) – My Father’s Farm
  • Tomato – Gundermann
  • Green Onions – Green Gate
  • Green Kale – Naegelin
  • Green Cabbage – Naegelin
  • Bibb Lettuce – Bella Verdi
  • Turnips w/ Tops – Gundermann
  • Chard – Naegelin
  • Oranges – G&S
  • Cilantro- not sure where this is from

Here’s what I am cooking:

Thursday: Grilled cheese and tomato sandwich, orange
Friday: Chickpea salad sandwich with lettuce and tomatoes
Saturday: in Houston for work
Sunday: Root vegetable kugel, orange juice
Monday: Chard tacos
Tuesday: Spaghetti with kale and green onion pesto

I’m using the cilantro to make a mojo de cilantro, which I’ll save in a jar for later and probably serve with cream cheese during March Madness. I’ve got the cabbage saved in a Debbie Myers green bag and it should keep just fine until next week.
