I suspect we're all feeling that way since Eleanor really loaded up on the broccoli at the grocery store today and roasted a big batch for herself when she got home. The veggie deprivement does help a bit with the meal planning for the week for all of us. Large batches of fruits and veggies, especially challenging at this time of year are making a big appearance on the menu here in the next few days.
Here's what I have for the remaining weekend and the start of next week.
I'm making some homemade yogurt while typing this ( a serious multi-tasker, I am). I had been feeling a bit confident, and my last batch of yogurt humbled me a bit. I had quite a few batches turn out before hitting the one that didn't, so this is my first attempt since failure. I was very careful this time:)
I made a batch of granola today as well as recovery bars. I made sushi for dinner (more on that later).
The plan is:
(in no particular order. Well, it's probably in order from the ingredients most likely to spoil to the ingredients less likely to spoil)
- Sweet Potato Bacon Pasta
- Arugula Pizza
- stir fry
- Buffalo chicken soup in the crockpot
- Athenian orzo
- tamale pie
It's back to the usual work schedule and swimming schedule, so I will need some quick things to pull together also. And some leftovers for lunches. We'll start with what I planned above and see how far that gets us this week.
Not too long too long until I can enjoy my sushi tonight.
Watch for some posts about all the new things I'm trying this week!
