Weekly menu

We are trying another new vegetable this week!  Leeks!  I have never cooked with them before, and I am excited to finally give them a try!  Along with the leeks, we picked up some green and yellow zucchini, carrots, sweet onion, cucumbers, cabbage, and strawberries from our local organic farm.  Here is how I will be using them this week.

  • French Bread Pizza with a Greek Salad and Baked Zucchini Fries
    • using the cucumbers, onion, and zucchini

  • Russian Mushroom and Potato Soup
    • using the leeks and carrots

  • Hamburger Macaroni Casserole with Coleslaw
    • using the carrots, onion, and cabbage

We will be enjoying the strawberries for dessert and as a topping on our breakfast oatmeal and cereal.
