Weekly Menu

OK.  We are officially in October, so I would really like to see some fall-like temperatures.  Here in my neighborhood we are expecting to exceed 100 degrees today.  YUCK!  I am anxious to start making chili's and soups here people!  We did still make it to the farm and picked up a bounty.  This was one of the biggest hauls I have had in a while.  We picked up a surprise "last-of-the-season" yellow watermelon, red leaf lettuce, kale, green beans, tomatoes, broccoli, sweet Maui onion, Galia melon, cilantro, and orange and green bell peppers.  This week we will be making:

  • Vegan Stuffed Shell Pasta with Kale-slaw
    • using the kale

  • Southwestern Chopped Salad
    • using the bell peppers, tomatoes, lettuce, and cilantro

  • Sun Dried Tomato, Basil, and Feta Frittata (for the baby)
    • using the sweet Maui onion and backyard basil

  • We will be enjoying the melons for dessert.
