Family Dinner Plan: Spring has sprung!

I am almost positive that I have used that post title before. So catchy and upbeat!

Today’s visit to the Farmer’s Market mirrored the one I took March 9, 2010; great spring items, including asparagus, artichokes, and lots of spring vegetables. Still enough winter items to keep us busy, including Brussel sprouts, turnips, beets, and citrus of all kinds. And of course, the date guy. Smile.

In other good news, our CSA from Mariquita Farms starts up again next week, and I am looking forward to all the exciting treasures in each week’s box!

Here is my menu plan for the week of March 3:

Sunday: Salmon, steamed asparagus (probably with lots of butter), salad with fennel, orange and walnuts, brown rice

Monday: Roast chicken, roasted turnips and beets, mashed potatoes, steamed broccoli, Brussel sprout salad

Tuesday: Sauerkraut and sausage with pork, salad with apples and walnuts, mashed cauliflower

Wednesday: Slow Cooker Curried Chicken with Potatoes, cauliflower rice, spinach salad

Thursday: Leftovers

Friday: Dinner out after basketball game

What is on your menu plan this week?

    I saw a comment you wrote way back in 2009 on this blog and wondered if you ever did the Earthbound Farm clamshell “garden”. I can usually get their lettuce at the local grocery store for $0.99 right before it expires. I feed it to my three bunnies (before it goes bad, of course). I have a ton of these containers, but can’t find anyone who’s actually done it at home.

    So if you did, how did it work out? Thanks :)

    Wow, I cannot even remember if we tried it! But it sounds like a great idea, especially since micro greens are all the rage. You could even plant chard or kale and harvest it when it is really small and tender. Please, for the sake of us all, give it a try and let me know how it goes!!
