One week away for spring break and we come back to find everything is abloom in the garden and the farmer’s market is overwhelming with spring-time treasures!
I love coming home from a trip away – the bed is more comfortable, the coffee is just the way I like it, and somehow, the air smells sweeter and better. This time, we had an extra bonus – our house sitters cleaned and processed our weekly Mariquita Farms veggie box, washing and separating the veggies for storage. All I have to do is come up with the menu.
Our box contained Purple Kohlrabi, Lettuces, Green Garlic, Spring Onions, Rapini, Red Radishes, Erbette Chard and Strawberries.
Here is my menu plan for the week of April 22:
Sunday: Local sablefish, celery root and fennel salad, grilled asparagus, brown rice
Monday: Creamy Polenta with Green Garlic and Erbette Chard, grilled lamb chops, salad
Tuesday: Fred’s Steak, roasted new potatoes, sauteed kohlrabi, salad, birthday cake
Wednesday: Taco Wednesday!
Thursday: Souffle night – savory and sweet, along with radish salad and a nice bottle of champagne
Friday: Take out and Trashy TV
What is on your menu plan this week?
