Meal Plan 4/5-4/11

Uh, I wrote this whole post last night while I was on dinner break at my job. Then I forgot to hit “publish” before I stepped away from my work computer. Kind of par for the course yesterday. Hopefully things will be a little less hectic today, starting with my trip to the farmer’s market tonight to celebrate bake sale victory with my foodie friends. Can’t wait to hang with them for a while, pick up some awesome veg, and eat some Bola Pizza.

This is what we’re getting in our Local Box this week:

  • Green or Red Leaf Lettuce- Acadian Family Farms
  • Romaine Lettuce – Tecolote
  • Strawberries (In addition to the Local Box pint, I’m buying some more at the market. Stawbonanza!!)
  • Chard – Bradshaw & Naegelin
  • Multi Colored Beets – Animal Farm
  • Heirloom Green Garlic – Lund Produce
  • Easter Egg Radishes – Animal Farm
  • Spring Onions – Naegelin
  • Pea Shoots – Acadian Family Farms

Here’s what I’m making:

Wednedsay: Bola Pizza from the Triangle Farmer’s Market
Thursday: Happy hour at Red House Pizzeria
Friday: Lettuce salad with roasted beets & radishes , strawberries
Saturday: Dinner at Asti
Sunday: Savory cheese and scallion scones, Candied pecan & strawberry salad
Monday: Warm beet and chard salad (tossing the pea shoots in here, too), beer bread
Tuesday: Pancakes with strawberry syrup, scrambled eggs & shallot tops

Breakfast: I’m doing a horrible job of actually eating the breakfast I make. When I remember to eat breakfast, I’ll probably have cream of wheat with strawberries and a little milk, or a savory cream of wheat with the tops of the green garlic, cheddar cheese, and some chopped bacon I have in the fridge.

    I’m horrible at breakfast, so I’ve been making a blueberry/almond milk/whey protein shake every morning. I’m usually good til around 1-2 before I’m hungry!
