Random bits of life

One thing I haven’t been really good at is planning out meals for the week. I’ve also been really bad at remembering when the CSA box was arriving and I always managed to double up on the fruits and veggies, which some, unfortunately, went to waste.

Well for some reason, I decided to change that. Yesterday.

I went to the CSA site so I knew what to expect in the box this morning (and knew what not to buy at the grocery store).

Then I took it one step further and mapped out what we were going to have for dinner this week:

Monday – Chipotle Bean Burritos
This recipe from Cooking Light is tried and true and the kidlets LOVE it.

Tuesday – Lentils with Spinach and Eggs
I’ve been seeing a lot of lentil dishes with poached eggs. Really, anything with poached eggs. I don’t have a recipe for this, so will be making it up as I go along. May serve it with roasted potatoes, not sure yet.

Wednesday – Butternut Squash Soup
Recipe courtesy of Mrs. Chris Martin. Grilled cheese and/or salad on the side.

Thursday – Italian Sausage & Chard Crust-less Quiche
…or fritatta. Using my basic quiche recipe (eggs, cream, s&p, nutmeg, gruyere) and adding sauteed sausage & chard.

Friday – possible date night?

Saturday – Easy Peasy Chile Verde
The kids have swim class late on Saturdays, so needless to say we get home pretty late. I’ll be using the slow cooker for this one.

Sunday – 10-hour Roast Chicken
Another one courtesy of Mrs. Martin. Slow roasting the chicken at a very low temp for 10 hours.

(I’ll update with pics if I remember…)

What are you cooking this week?
