We’re back from our vacation to Nova Scotia, where we ate lots of amazing food. It was such a treat to eat at great locavore restaurants throughout the province, but I’m definitely looking forward to a week of home-cooked meals.
Saturday was my husband’s birthday, and the last thing he wanted to do was go out to dinner after a week of restaurant dinners. So I improvised with a simple dinner full of the farm share veggies I picked up that morning. We loved the cherry tomato pasta dish, and my husband made me promise to make it again. I’ll be sharing the recipe soon. It was so simple and delicious.
The rest of the menu for the week revolves around the farm share vegetables that are overrunning my fridge. One drawer is completely full of corn on the cob, and I’m glad we also have loads of potatoes so I can make my favorite corn chowder. I can’t tell you what veggies will be in the frittata on Friday, but I know I’ll have lots of options from my Wednesday farm pickup.
I won’t be posting a meal plan next week, and I’m so excited about why. My 9-year-old daughter is doing a cooking camp, and she’ll be coming home with a full dinner for the whole family each day (main dish, side dish, and dessert). The theme is French cooking. I’ve been looking forward to this week for months. I’ll just have to figure out what to do with all my farm share vegetables next week. Lots of lunch salads, I guess.
