Meal Plan 5/10-5/17

It’s raining in Austin right now! We desperately need some rain, and all the clouds from this cold front are expected to stay for the rest of the week. Hooray! More good news: Rami and I cleaned out our kitchen last weekend and I found a picnic basket in one of the cupboards above the fridge.We decided that picnics would be fun, cheap dates for the summer and we have resolved to take picnics together on the weekends. Any good ideas for picnic locations in Austin?

Of course, there are other meals to plan besides picnic dates! Here’s what we’re getting in the local box:

Yellow Beans – Animal Farm
Kale – Green Collar
Carrots – Acadian Family Farm
Red Beets – Massey Farm
Purple Top Turnips – Gundermann Acres
Watermelon Radish- Tecolote Farm
Radicchio – Tecolote Farm
Red Leaf Lettuce – Acadian Family Farm
Spring Onions – Bar W Ranch & Farm
Garlic – Fruitful Hill Farm

Here’s what I’m making:

Wednesday: Death by Garlic Pasta (I’ll add radicchio to this recipe)
Thursday: Steamed beets, Venison meat loaf
Friday: Vegetable Pot Pie w/ turnips, carrots, onions, yellow beans
Saturday: Picnic dinner! Spanish-style beet, carrot and egg sandwiches, apple slices with honey, cava
Sunday: We’re eating out before the Texas Rollergirls Bout! My friends Rebecca and Brooke will be playing and we are psyched to see them kill! kill! kill!
Monday: Rustic Radish Tart , lettuce salad with garlic vinaigrette
Tuesday: Leftover awareness night
