Well, we had fun this weekend: Connecticut pool time with the bubs and grandparents. Jasper learned how to swim under water, and Magnolia confirmed her status as a water hound.
The menu this week is CSA dominated. We picked up our first fruit share; exciting!! But, ladies and gentlemen, we’ve reached the part of the summer that includes KALE. What do you do with it? We find kale a little daunting.
Don’t you feel like the summer is racing by? I feel an intense need to start main-lining peaches, RIGHT NOW. More to come on that front.
Sunday: Pasta & Pesto (store bought and delicious) with sautéed CSA squash and zucchini, and the tale-end of Jersey corn we bought last week
Monday: Grilled Salmon, CSA Green-Leaf Lettuce Salad with Goat Cheese and Grilled Tomatoes and Rice Pilaf
Tuesday: Grilled Skirt Steak (still grooving on the Mark Bittman thing) with Grilled Onion, plus an Arugula and Cucumber Salad (also from the CSA)
Wednesday: Vegetable Burritos starring Zucchini
Thursday: Orecchiette with Cauliflower, Red Chili Flakes & CSA Green-Leaf Salad with Slivered Raw Fennel (I’ve come around to raw fennel)
Friday and Saturday we are being entertained, hooray!
Have a great week! I’m counting down to birthdays & Martha’s Vineyard!
