The last couple of weeks have been exciting though. We are settling in nicely to our new place, and are very happy here. I’ve gotten more serious about preparing foods properly (soaking etc) and have happily noted that it is really not that difficult. I menu plan anyway, so it is all too easy to simply consult the plan and look up what needs to be done! I also started a batch of fermented vegetables – can’t wait to crack them open and have a taste. And we picked up our first CSA box on Thursday night! CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture, and is a fantastic way of eating seasonal and local food. Yes, you don’t know what you will get in your box from week to week, but that is half the fun of it! I was too excited about it all to remember to take a photo – so I will take a photo next week and post more info then too.
So, because we are picking up our CSA box every Thursday night, this has thrown a spanner in the works in terms of meal planning! I’ll be posting menu plans towards the end of the week now, rather than at the start – hopefully Friday nights once I get into a better rhythm. I will still link up to the menu plan posts over at Quirky Cooking, so hop on over there for some more menu planning inspiration (as well as some yummy recipes!).
Here is this week’s menu plan:
breakfast: porridge and fresh juice
lunch: zucchini slice plus veg sticks and avocado
dinner: mushroom and pea risotto
breakfast: raw superfood chia porridge and fresh juice
