For the past week, it seems as though things are sneaking up quite quickly. And by things, I mean the holidays. Gosh, they seem to be looming large this year. And I have a couple of projects that need to be tackled before then, plus I just picked up a new gig, writing for the Mint blog. Check out my first article, Paris on a Budget, posted last week.
One of the bigger projects in the next few weeks is our annual Book Fair at school, which I help plan. And then there is another blog conference, Foodbuzz. Oh, and the kids are out of school early for a whole week. And then we have Thanksgiving. Happens just. like. that.
We found Tomatoes, Scallions, Collard Greens, Sugar Pie Pumpkin, Strawberries, Red Jalapeno Peppers, Red Butter Lettuce, Fennel and Broccoli in our Two Small Farms box this week. Only 5 more weeks of our CSA for this season, I also better think about planting my winter garden. Gack, another task to do.
Here is my menu plan for the week of October 18:
Sunday: Braised Lamb Shanks with Tomatoes and White Beans, steamed broccoli, salad
Tuesday: Beans and Greens, with Collard Greens, cornbread, salad
Wednesday: Chili (made by Kitchen Kid), served with garlic bread and carrot sticks
Thursday: One-Pot Penne with Turkey-Feta Meatballs, salad with fennel and red onion
Friday: Movie night and ?
What is on your menu plan this week? BTW, you will notice I have no plan for the Red Jalapenos. Any suggestions?
