things I want to eat

Filed under: Meal Planning — Tags: — anotheryarn @ 5:57 pm

Instead of a meal plan for the rapidly diminishing week how about a list of things I want to eat but maybe not cook.  Or it could be I want to cook them but not eat them.  It is hard to say, other than I’ve been avoiding the kitchen since Tuesday, with the exception of a delicious buttermilk cake made in the cool of night.  Though the joke ended up being on me since it didn’t get too hot the next day.

Produce round-up
Produce lingering from the store: celeriac, celery
Produce fresh from the store: creamer potatoes, green beans, blueberries, cherries (at least I know all but the potatoes were localish)
Produce from the FM (lingering): purple potatoes, parsley
Produce from the CSA leftovers: chard, green onion
Produce from the CSA this week: arugula, cucumbers, zucchini, kohlrabi, cabbage, spinach

But what do I want to make?

  • Arugula, Potato and green bean salad (the only reason I bought potatoes and green beans from the store – only to come home and learn I needed yogurt and walnuts too; still need to pick those up)
  • Zucchini-Feta pancakes
  • Tomato-Chard Curry with the chard, and maybe the spinach too
  • Curried Red Lentils over hard-boiled eggs (doesn’t really use any veggies though I considered serving it alongside the chard)
  • Riata
  • Naan, but I fear having the oven on that long, maybe I’ll cheat and go with frozen…
  • frittata would be good for leftovers but it isn’t calling to me
  • these purple potatoes but with what?
  • cucumber, tomato and feta salad

Perhaps nothing is clicking because I have a produce drawer almost full of wintery vegetables (save the zucchini and cucumber) and the weather is anything but?  I keep looking at celeriac recipes to get it out of my fridge and they are all very wintery (go figure, being a winter veggie and all).  Hmm, since it isn’t too hot today perhaps a celeriac-potato puree with sauted greens and sauted zucchini?  That sounds doable.
