Lately we’ve been operating without a plan. We get veggies every Wednesday, and then cook according to what strikes our fancy every night. So far it’s been kind of refreshing and only a little frustrating. It’s a little hard to wing breakfast and lunch, but we haven’t gone hungry, yet. We’ve taken turns with dinner, and only eat a little later than usual.
I haven’t been in the mood to photograph our share every Wednesday night. Here is a picture from the first week, and then I lost interest after that.
So what have we been eating? Let me try to work backwards:
Tuesday June 28th: spinach pasta in marinara with a meatball from the freezer
Monday June 27th: fried green tomatoes and salad
Sunday June 26th: Moroccan swiss chard salad and leftover indian eggplant
Saturday June 25th: I was visiting a friend overnight and S had a stir fry- ribeye, beet greens, and carrots with a ginger/adobo/soy sauce
Friday June 24th: a whole carrot flatbread sandwich. S’s inspiration: a whole carrot tabbouleh (chopped up carrots with all their greens, dressed in olive oil and lemon juice) served on a pocketless pita with a yogurt sauce (strained yogurt, garlic, and mint). Very good.
Thursday June 23rd: complete hodgepodge – it was going to be a beet and potato salad, but I overcooked the potato. And then we were also going to have a green salad with chickpeas, but I thought it would be fun to saute the chickpeas in some homemade chana masala with pomegranate. Our plate ended up being a green salad with sliced beets, mashed potato with butter, and indian chickpeas. It was a mess, but pretty good nonetheless.
Wed June 22nd: Pasta in marinara with fresh herbs
Tues June 21st: Out with a visiting friend from college
Mon June 20th: Grilled veggie pizza (eggplant, squash, zucchini, spring onion)
Sun June 19th: Father’s Day out with S’s dad
Sat June 18th: BBQ with some friends (I brought a broccoli/chickpea/tahini sauce salad)
Earlier: potato kale casserole, potato Dauphinois, swiss chard quiche
