It makes so much sense to me to write a up a weekly plan to make sure I use this produce to make the most of this vitality and also ensure nothing goes to waste.
This week the plan uses the produce that goes in to our CSA boxes plus what I have in the pantry
Wednesday ~ Pizza with pesto.
Thursday ~ Pesto pasta
1/4 cup pine nuts (replace pine nuts with macadamia nuts from the box)
1 1/2 cups fresh basil leaves
2 small garlic cloves
3/4 cup parmesan
5 Tblspns olive oil
Mix altogether in food processor
Friday ~ Couscous and zucchini salad
Saturday ~ Stir Fry
Sunday ~ LETS picnic Pizza and pasta
Monday ~ Chili corn pie
Tuesday ~ Vegetable curry
Last night we celebrated the completion of our Pizza Oven by cooking a quiche ....
Mark has worked hard to get the oven completed so that we can host the LETS (Local Energy Trading System) Christmas party on Sunday night. We will be having pizza and pasta. So quite a few meals this week will be cooked in the pizza oven to make sure that it's up to scratch .
|Quiche and weed salad shared with family and friends last night to celebrate|
Our lovely WWOOFer Julia has been making weed salads from the garden. Weeds included are fat hen, farmer's friends, purslane, plantain and dandelion, all very abundant at this time of year. Wonderful to think that there is always something to eat from the garden.
