What I’ve Planned – Week 11
I try to make a mix of quick, small meals we will finish in one sitting and larger meals that make plenty of leftovers and space them throughout the week. Salad on repeat gets old fast. The ingredients this week help me mix and match flavors for many different styles and tastes. Here’s what I have planned.
- Wax beans and chorizo
- Zucchini quesadillas
- Sheet pan sausage potato pepper roast
- Blackberry and blue cheese salad
- Curried lamb with chard
- Chicken fajita salad
The peaches we got are pretty hard and will take a while to ripen. I also see a cucumber a day as snack in my future!
What I Got – Week 11
What I Made – Week 10
I had great lighting for all my dishes this week, even if many of them were mostly the same. (And all served in bowls?!) Not pictured are the leftover pulled pork we paired with blistered green beans, quiche with chard, loaf of zucchini bread, and some zucchini chocolate chip cookies I made this week.
We used everything this week except a couple of cucumbers, some of the parsley, and yes, still more zucchini! Even when the months seem like they all run together, that’s how you know it’s July.
What I Made – Week 11
This is the week of the year when it’s almost too hot to stand over the stove, but we’re no longer getting much lettuce for salads! Only one salad this week, everything else I tried to make quick and easy or in the crock pot!
We ate the peaches plain, and are still up to our eyeballs in cucumbers with plenty of onions still on hand, but we did a pretty good job using up the rest of our veggies this week.
What I’ve Planned – Week 10
Welcome to another week of balancing leftovers with the new bounty from this week’s basket. No doubt we’re moving quickly into the peak of summer season now. Here’s what I am planning to make (or still plan to make, in the case of some of last week’s basket ingredients!)
- Drunken (zucchini) noodles
- Farro Salad with Beets, Scallions & Pistachios
- Broccoli and tofu stir fry
- Greek farro salad
- Zucchini noodle lasagna
- Quiche with chard, cheddar, and breakfast sausage
I’m also still hoping to make a zucchini chocolate cake of some sort, maybe to freeze, since the fridge is already overwhelmed with leftovers as it is!
What I Got – Week 10
What I Made – Week 9
For a pretty heavy basket, we didn’t make too many impressive meals this week. We were able to use up some of the older items hanging around from last week, though.
Not pictured are the blueberry and cherry sauces we made for topping waffles (or ice cream). We still have the kale and more zucchini to try and use next week!
What I’ve Planned – Week 9
Like I mentioned last week, we have some soggy lettuce hanging around, so you’ll notice some recipes this week that feature ingredients from weeks past as we try to not let anything go to waste.
