It’s been quiet on the menu plan front, and I apologize for that. For whatever reason, when our share switched from weekly main season pickups to bi-weekly winter season pickups, I got out of the menu posting (and planning!) routine. Though I have been really good about taking the pictures, which is funny because historically that’s the part of blogging I like least. Go figure.
This week will be no exception to that lack of routine. I picked up our share yesterday, but with Christmas and some holiday travels on the horizon, this isn’t going to be a full plan either. But I did want to stop in and share some of the things I’ve been making lately and recipes I have on the agenda for the coming days.
If you’re considering a Berkshire-area CSA for 2018, I highly recommend Mighty Food Farm. They’re expanding their offerings to include an egg share and a fruit share, for an additional cost. I can hardly believe that we’ve been getting our veggies at Mighty Food for 7 years now and I couldn’t imagine my life without it.
The Pick Up
kale, butternut squash, spinach, apples, sweet potatoes, beets, red onions, potatoes
Slow Cooker Lentil Soup
Honey Bourbon Pulled Chicken (Healthy Delicious – slow cooker recipe) sandwiches with sweet potato fries
baked ziti (one of these days, I’ll post my mom’s recipe!) with roasted beets
Creamy Polenta with Tomatos and Chickpeas
pizza topped with frozen bell pepper strips and red onion
kale and potato frittata
Christmas food plans:
- breakfast: a family tradition from Brian’s side – scrambled eggs, pierogies, kielbasa and raspberry danish (traditionally Entenmann’s, but this year I’m making a raspberry variation on this Cinnamon Apple Twist Bread)
- lunch: soup, possibly Clam Chowder (Healthy Delicious, again)
- dinner: cheese plate with local Graham Farmhouse Mulled Wine (our traditional meal and drink pairing)
