Some Menu Plans Are Easier Than Others

I’ve written a lot of nice things about menu plans.  How they keep me organized, how they help with food shopping, how I couldn’t live without them.  But sometimes menu plans are so hard to write!  Sometimes I am just not feeling it.

This has been one of those times.  Our CSA pickups don’t resume for another 3 weeks and local produce is still just beginning to switch over to spring.  I haven’t cooked much over the past couple weeks and it’s hard to get back in the routine of spending real time in the kitchen.  And, despite the fact that I have literally thousands of recipes in my Evernote account, I just wasn’t feeling anything.   Summer veggies cannot come soon enough.  Nor can inspiration.

Short version: I spent an inappropriately long time on this menu, and I’m still not happy with it.  Perhaps I’ll find some mid-week inspiration and make some last minute changes.  If not, at least I have a plan I can work with.
