Finally a meal plan! It’s only half a week, but that’s progress.
Monthly Archives: July 2010
Here’s a picture of broccoli rabe from the garden at the beginning of the season, and then the pasta that we had made with it. I miss the Spring…
It’s been weeks now since we’ve updated the ardoise. I’ve tried to reconstruct what we’ve been eating, but it’s tough to remember that far back.
Wed Jun 30: fried rice and beet salad
Thu Jun 31: ?
Fri Jul 1 – Sun Jul 4: We were visiting my family. On Friday we had some fettucini pasta at my Dad’s. On Saturday we were at a wedding. On Sunday we had a birthday celebration for my Dad with a whole bunch of food.
Mon Jul 5: cream of leftover greens soup (mostly swiss chard with some golden beet greens)
Tue Jul 6: pasta primavera?
Wed Jul 7: S cooked, but neither of us recall what
Thu Jul 8: asian green beans?
Fri Jul 9: take-out sushi
Sat Jul 10: ?
Sun Jul 11: pizza. S notes that it was one of my best pizzas ever (it was pretty good). We intended to grill it, but it was too hot to grill… so we turned on the oven. Somehow that made sense at the time.
Mon Jul 12: tapas night! cold lamb loin with horseradish, garlic chili shrimp, new potatoes with garlic aioli, leek and potato frittata
Tue Jul 13: pasta primavera with garden green beans and cherry tomatoes
Wed Jul 14: cream of broccoli floret soup
Thu Jul 15: Brew at the Zoo!
Fri Jul 16: buckwheat pancakes with mango
Sat Jul 17: pizza night with Inge and J! zucchini and garlic pizza with a hearty salad. yum!
I’m a little behind with my CSA pictures. Here’s two weeks ago: potatoes, leeks, flowers, garlic, zucchini, candy onions, salad greens, and I can’t remember what else! Everything is really good – the potatoes, onions, and zukes were all very tasty. I’ll put up a menu (what I can remember of it) soon.
Here are some grilled piri piri shrimp and red rice from a few weeks ago. Both recipies are from Marcus Samuelsson’s African cookbook.
I missed putting up a menu again last week. Here’s what we’ve eaten:
Wed June 23 & Thu June 24: I have no idea! Maybe salads or omlettes?
Fri June 25: S had a work dinner and I cobbled together a sort-of a risotto style pasta primavera
Sat Jun 26: Grill! burgers and slaw
Sun Jun 27: Company for dinner! Carrot soup (with carrot greens) and basil/mozz/tomato panini
Mon Jun 28: BLT, garden cucumber and green bean salad
Tue Jun 29: yellow dal, broccoli greens, and kabob
