food this week

i love thursdays because i get to pick up my csa box, milk, cheese, eggs, meat and then take it all home and stare at it all afternoon trying to decide what i'm going to make.

i *really* enjoy cooking.
i guess it's just an expression of my creativity and also the chance to take care of others in the process.
and especially this whole "seasonal cooking" thing that i've been doing.
it's like a fun puzzle that i get to put together since we never know in advance what we're getting in our box...or what kinds of meat farmer chad has that day.

anyway, i planned my meals today and here's what we're eating...

broiled asian tilapia, fried rice made with csa veggies and farm eggs, roasted carrots

grilled cheese and TJ's roasted red pepper and tomato soup (tim works)

country fried steak with milk gravy, garlic mashed potatoes, braised greens

grilled sirloin steak, roasted parsnips, salad

black bean and sweet potato enchiladas, salad

leftovers (i work)

leftovers (i work)

yummy. i'm getting hungry just thinking about it.

i also have a butternut squash that i'll turn into babyfood or just puree it and freeze in cubes to sneak into mac and cheese. ;)
