this week's menu

By Monday, August 02, 2010 , ,

Chris started his new job a few weeks ago, which means that he hasn’t been home until late most evenings. This has wrecked havoc on my nightly cooking routine since he would typically take Pickle on some sort of mini-adventure, providing me with 30 minutes of uninterrupted prep time — heaven. Without him, my menus have fallen to pieces and I have to whip things together on the fly or make my standard fallback of grilled cheese with avocado.

This week, I think I’ve got things figured out: meals that are either leftover friendly or easy to prep with a two-year-old running under foot. We’ll see how it goes … we can always have another grilled cheese and avocado sandwich, especially if it is made with Big Ed’s Farmstyle Gouda. Yum.

In the box:
Banana pepper
Chioggia Beets
Cippolini Onions
Green Beans
Green Bell Peppers
Jalapeno Peppers
Sauté Mix
Sungold Tomatoes
Tomatoes — Roma and heirloom
