In no particular order, some eats and treats from last week . . .
A delicious coconut curry, using some of Dan's brother's CSA veg:
Beans and rice:
We've been going through a huge batch of this every week. I'm still not sick of it, but I've decided we're going to take a break from beans and rice this week. You know, for the sake of variety and everything.
This is what you make when you find out you've purchased brittle corn tortillas that will not roll up, no matter how delicately you treat them. :)
I hit up two stores plus the Farmer's Market this morning, in hopes of picking up our weekly haul under budget. Sadly, we're over by $40 this month, which I'm thinking we might just "borrow" out of next month's budget, since we did so much stocking up on sale items and in-season produce this month.
The glorous Farmer's Market loot:
Clockwise from bottom row: red peppers (already roasted and frozen,) mini heirloom tomatoes, green onions, cilantro, a red onion, apples, lettuce, a mountain of grape tomatoes (currently being oven-dried,) and broccoli!
From the Asian grocery store:
Rice vinegar, tamarind concentrate, bean sprouts, limes, rice noodles, tofu, and brown rice.
And last, from the co-op:
Seventh Generation TP, organic bananas, organic fair-trade coffee, organic peanuts, Goddess dressing, unrefined peanut oil, organic mayo, coconut juice w/pulp, and three ProBars.
(No, the cat was not purchased at the co-op, just in case you were wondering.)
I picked up the ProBars since I'd heard good things about them, and knew I wasn't going to have time to eat lunch today. Another Clif bar will never enter my house! ProBars are delicious and nutritious and just plain awesome! Yum.
I have a few cooking/baking projects planned for tomorrow, so stay tuned! Happy Saturday to all!
