recent eatings

So Sunday we went to Slim Goodie's to send off MVB for the season. Bacon, egg, and cheese burger. (cue Homer Simpson drool)

As this was the third burger in 4 days I had, I thought it was best to maybe ease off with the beef a little bit. So last night we ate vegetarian- a quinoa and black bean salad, and today I went to Hollygrove and picked up a produce box, determined to make a meal plan that will incorporate all the stuff without wasting it like we usually do.

In the box:
pint strawberries
3 peaches
1 head cabbage
1 bunch broccoli
shitake mushrooms
red skinned potatoes
bunch of herbs - parsley, mint, rosemary, sage
pattypan squash
yellow squash
red beans (in the pod still)
local brown rice

I also bought some okra, 'cause it looked gorgeous and I found a recipe that I could use it for. I cooked it tonight - Curried Chicken with Okra and Potatoes, which was pretty good. I also whipped up some arugula-pecan (with some parsley and lemon basil) pesto for dinner tomorrow night- planning on having that tomorrow with fettuccine and sauteed squash and onion. Thursday, a stirfry with cabbage, broccoli, mushrooms and brown rice. Maybe some tofu.

It's hard to eat healthy without a plan. But it's hard to plan! We'll see how it goes.

Not too exciting, but hopefully relatively tasty and healthy. A break from hedonism can only increase future enjoyment of future hedonistic activities! (hmm, wonder where chicken fried steak tomorrow fits in this temporary health food kick.)
