Though I couldn’t manage to get a menu posted last week, I’m feeling generally more positive about the dinner situation in our house. Maybe it’s just a matter of settling in, but I have menu ideas sketched out for the next several weeks and am overall happy with the level of provisions in our pantry. Plus, I joined BJ’s last week and they had flour!
Another thing that’s helped a bit is delivery from our local farmers’ markets. Both the Pittsfield Farmers Market and the North Adams Farmers Market are taking online orders and delivering them, which is incredible. I’ve ordered from each once and just having a little bit of in-season greenery makes meals, and my mood, just a bit brighter. In just over a month, we’ll be back to CSA shares and that will also make a big difference.
