The Weekly Menu, July 18 – 24 (or, What Should We Do with the Kale?)

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.

A few things we picked up at the CSA

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.

The Menu:

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!

    Nigella has an awesome recipe in NIGELLA BITES for poached chicken with white beans chorizo and kale. I guess it’s kinda wintery. . but can also be done with eggs instead of chicken. Kale is your friend!
