Weekly Menu

We had a lovely (albeit hot!) trip to the farm this week.  Summer is really warming up here in Southern California!  It's funny because it doesn't usually get hot until August, but it will stay really hot sometimes through November!  Apparently our summer weather is a little late.  :)  Nevertheless, we brought home a beautiful summer bounty from the farm this week.  We chose basil, sweet Maui onions, saticoy melons, cilantro, Anaheim chile, a ton of tomatoes, carrots, and avocados.  We are also still experiencing a cucumber BOOM in our backyard.  Here is what we will be making this week:
  • Greek Spinach Burger with Quinoa Tabbouleh
    • using the sweet Maui onion, tomatoes, cucumber, carrots, and parsley left over from last week's farm run

  • Huevos Rancheros with Restaurant Style Salsa
    • using the tomatoes, cilantro, avocado, Anaheim chile, and sweet Maui onion

  • Fettuccine Alfredo with Caprese Salad
    • using the basil and tomatoes

  • We will also be making a batch of my Homemade Marinara to freeze and save for later!

  • We will be enjoying the saticoy melons for dessert.
