One day late- forgot to post! 🙂
This week Eric and I went to the Easton Wintertime Farmers Market at Simpson Springs. We brought $100 and got plenty to eat for the week. We spent $30 on wine from Running Brook Vineyards and the rest of the $70 went to groceries. Here’s what I can recall for items and prices:
– Apples ($2.99/lb)
– Dill pickles ($8)
– Lettuce $2/head (we bought four since we were having some family over for dinner Saturday evening)
– Cheddar cheese from Foxboro Cheese Company
– Kale ($4 a bag, probably about 5 cups)
We also went to the grocery store for the first time in awhile. We buy all of our paper and household goods through Amazon.com’s Subscribe and Save, and I have a pretty good stockpile of rice, beans and other pantry staples, so there hasn’t been a need to hit the grocery store. Since we were having a dinner party, and wanted to make chicken Parmesan we needed some supplies, most notably chicken. I hope to be in a position someday to be able to throw a dinner party from our own backyard, but I’m not there yet!
The rest of the week is all planned out:
Sunday- lamb shank and maple syrup-glazed Brussels sprouts (recipe coming up later in the week- absolutely delicious!)
Monday- Caesar salad with leftover fried chicken
Tuesday- leftover chicken Parm w/ sautéed kale
Wednesday- Salad with Cheddar cheese and apples
Thursday- Crockpot lentil soup w/ homemade whole-wheat biscuits
Friday- homemade pizza or calzones w/ mozzarella & roasted red peppers (frozen from last year’s garden)
For breakfast I am making enough Overnight Oats (of Pinterest fame) to last the rest of the week. Lunches are leftovers or frozen, homemade soups.
On another note, I checked our cold frame and some lettuce seeds germinated!! Here’s hoping they make it through the remaining cold days!
That’s what we’ve got cooking this week. How about you?
