Weekly Menu

Happy Monday everyone!  I'm back after a much needed week off.  It was nice to slow down and recharge before the summer season.  Speaking of summer, the produce is slowly changing!  I just missed the first selection of corn and tomatoes, but they will be there next week and I can't wait!  I did pick up my first basil of the season (YAY!) along with romaine, cilantro, kale, garlic, celery, baby sweet Maui onions, cherries, blueberries, strawberries and plums.  There was also a head of cabbage and some summer squash that I totally forgot to put in the picture because I left the bag in the car, whoops!  With this wonderful selection, we will be enjoying the following this week:

  • Crispy Pesto Gnocchi and a Strawberry Salad with Feta and Raspberry Vinaigrette
    • using the garlic, basil, romaine, and some of the strawberries

  • Hearty Vegetable Spaghetti with a Summer Squash Saute
    • using the celery, summer squash, and garlic

  • We will be enjoying the plums, strawberries, and blueberries for dessert

  • We will be freezing the cherries for a wonderful summer snack.  There is nothing better than frozen cherries on a hot day!
