First, thanks to all who made brunch suggestions! I am sad to say I ran out of energy with the prepping and enjoying of the preschool graduation party, but I am ready to go for the next brunch round, which is not far off.
This week is a bit of the eye of the storm; back from the weekend, we have one relaxed week before the family races all over the Eastern seaboard for graduations (high schools this time) and reunions. I'm still trying to take it easy on myself for the week; it was lovely eating so many things last week that were so easy, it gave me time to prep nice salads and fruit-based desserts.
Monday: asparagus and goat cheese pasta from Smitten Kitchen. (You will soon note a theme here.)
Tuesday: freezer meal (I have a meeting); bulgar chickpea salad
Wednesday: I think my husband got tickets to the baseball game. But I'm kinda hoping he didn't so we can do a Wednesday Spaghetti.
chicken lettuce wraps; rice; broccoli
Friday: trying again for teriyaki sirloin steak, sweet potatoes, and whatever veggie is in the CSA box (probably salad, maybe more asparagus, in which case I'd love to make this asparagus tart
As for last week...
The CSA started! The first box had spring lettuces, mushrooms, and radishes, which were a great salad with buttermilk dressing based on this Smitten Kitchen recipe. I doubled the dressing but next time, I'll only use half the sugar (if any); I really like my dressings more tart but this is a great base and used my chives beautifully.
And the box had rhubarb! So it was back to the Smitten Kitchen for her rhubarb recipes. Woohoo!
Have a great week, and don't forget to visit I'm an Organizing Junkie for more menus!
