I've been blowing right past the neighborhood farmers market on my way to the neighboring county's farmers market on Saturday mornings. The neighborhood market is quite small and the prices are higher than in the next county. Some of the same vendors have simultaneous booths at both markets, but better prices and selection in the next county.
Sunday is the day for a family meeting to discuss what everyone would like to eat during the coming week based on what's in season. The executive chef (moi) has veto power, as it should be. This is what will be on the table this week.
- Breakfast: boiled eggs and toast
- Supper: baked ziti, salad
- Breakfast: choice of cereal
- Supper: black-eyed peas, rice pilaf, orange beets, cornbread (double recipe, freeze one to use in Thanksgiving dressing)
- Breakfast: homemade cinnamon-raisin bread
- Supper: borsht and hearty homemade bread (save half loaf)
- Breakfast: oatmeal with raisins and brown sugar
- Supper: Welch rabbit (use half loaf from Wednesday), steamed broccoli
- Breakfast: bagels and cream cheese or cinnamon toast
- Supper: tuna casserole, salad
- Breakfast: bacon, choice of egg, grits, toast
- Supper: potluck (see what's left in fridge)
- Breakfast: waffles, sausage
- Dinner: pot roast, mashed potatoes, English peas, homemade dinner rolls
The roast gets thrown in the oven before heading out to church and the dough is left to rise next to the hot oven. Afterwards it doesn't take too long to finish everything up.
What's on your menu for the week?
