For some reason I was way out of sorts at the market today. I think it was because, due to this game called life, I am not going to be cooking as much as usual this week. In turn, I couldn’t really decided how much food to purchase. I wanted to give a full week’s worth of meal plan ideas even though I probably won’t cook an entire week’s worth of meals this week. Anyway, here’s what I got:
From Rising Fawn Gardens: Spinach ($4.00/bag), sorrel (an ingredient I’ve never used before!)($2.00/bunch), radishes ($2.00/bunch), and Asian greens (which are nice and peppery, similar to arugula, which we adore)($2.50/bunch).
From Hoe Hop Valley Farm: Pork chops ($8.50 for 4) and eggs (on sale 2 dozen for $5.00 since these were smallish).
From Link 41: Bacon. Duh. $9.50. I want to get some of their pepperone (no, that is not a misspelling) soon.
From Circle S Farm: Young onions, $2.00
From Fall Creek Farms: A gallon of raw milk ($8.00/week for the herd share after buying in to the herd share program) and seven red potatoes (I miscounted and told them I got eight….so I paid for eight-$2.00-then got home and realized I’d only picked up seven. Oh well.)
I think I have an idea of my menu for the week, so depending on time I’ll get that posted later this evening or tomorrow. Right now, though, I’m off to cook tonight’s dinner. In the meantime, check out this month’s Busy Bee Trader…Chattavore is featured on pages 54 & 55, including a review of my favorite Blue Ribbon Cafe, and my first post is up on Honest Cooking-yippee!
