Farmers Market Goods & Weekly Meal Plan

I loaded up at the market this morning and just planned out my week's meals. I should preface this by saying that I'm not always great about sticking with my meal plans. For one reason or another, something always gets flip flopped (arugula won't last until Wednesday, chicken hasn't thawed yet, missing an ingredient for a recipe, etc). That said, I think as long as you have a basic outline, enough food and some creativity, you can mix it up as needed.

Here's my menu plan for this week....

BLTAs (using my favorite bacon from the market and delicious bread)
Roasted Butternut Squash Soup

Leftover Butternut Squash Soup, Arugula Salad

Christopher’s Texas Pecan Crusted Halibut in Tomato Orange Sauce
Sauteed Brussel Sprouts with Lemon and Pistachios
Brown rice

Potato Leek Soup
Sauteed Red Kale (with onion and bacon)

Chicken in Wine Sauce
Roasted Parsnips

Momma's night off as you know

Other (will use for lunch or another side dish for dinner one night)
Sweet Potato Fries (new recipe)
Braised Cabbage (new recipe)

Colleen - if you like braised cabbage, check out the braised cabbage recipe on Orangette - not sure exactly what it is called, but it is finished with a soft french cheese on top...amazing!

congrats on your baby boy!

Looks delicious but does it really take 2 hours to cook in the oven?
