CARRYING OVER INTO NEXT WEEK:
THOUGHTS ON THIS PAST WEEK’S FOOD:
We almost got caught up with our share this week! I made an effort to try to cram as many vegetable heavy dishes in as possible. I was pretty impressed with the pasta salad I threw together, and it used up a lot of vegetables. It also made great leftovers that we didn’t mind eating several times. On the other hand, while the
I was pretty impressed with the pasta salad I threw together, and it used up a lot of vegetables. It also made great leftovers that we didn’t mind eating several times. On the other hand, while the Nicoise salad was wonderful the first time, the second and third time got very old, very quick.
The hoisin eggplant was great and so easy to make. Lightly coat eggplant slices with olive oil and grill. When it’s almost done, brush with hoisin sauce. This is something we’ll definitely repeat.
Madeline liked almost everything we made this week (or at least the first few bites) but looked at us like we were trying to kill her when we gave her a bite of the Nicoise salad. We thought she might like it because of the olives in it (one of her favorite foods), but it was a no go.
I froze the extra pasta sauce and sliced peaches. Come winter, we’ll be really happy to have them. We try to eat seasonally, but our freezer gives us a little taste of summer during those dark days.
I hope you all had another great week filled with great food!
