It’s been a good couple of weeks around here. My birthday last weekend was fabulous, I feel like I’m really getting into the school routine and we’re solidly into my favorite season. Brian and I finally got our acts together this week to go apple picking and it was gorgeous. Hopefully I can do some planning for preserving and get more apples to put up before it’s too late.
Last week’s pick up wasn’t photographed. The vegetables went immediately into the fridge when I arrived home, my parents had already arrived and we headed out to dinner right away. When it comes to choosing between The Old Forge’s buffalo wings and taking a picture of vegetables, I still choose buffalo wings. No menu plan was posted last weekend either. So tonight, a 2 week menu plan in one post!
But I did take a picture this week!
The pick up:
cabbage, spinach, eggplant, Romanesco cauliflower, broccoli, peppers, potatoes, garlic, acorn squash, arugula
The plan (last week and this week):
It’s clear from these menus and the shift in available produce that the weather is changing. The words “curry”, “soup” and “potato” keep appearing on my menus and I seem powerless to stop it. I’m trying to make the most of seasonal vegetables before the roots take over for the winter, but potatoes are my favorite.
