Happy May! This weekend was the first weekend where I really felt like spring had arrived. It’s been sunny (after a week of rain and clouds) and warm (in the 60s!). It’s enough to make a girl want to go camping! Or, at least get out the grill. :) I also realized that since it’s May, I just have a few weeks left until our CSA starts up again. We’re going with the same farm again this year (Olden Produce), and I am so ready for fresh produce.
Last week, I took advantage of the unseasonably cool weather and made things like this chicken bacon wild rice soup. You know, comfort food. This week, with the exception of our scalloped potatoes and ham, I am moving on. Maybe if I cook like spring is here, it will actually stick around! :)
Monday 5/5 – Chickpea Tomato Pasta. It’s fast and easy, which is a must, because we have big plans for Monday night. Jack is back!!
Tuesday 5/6 – Scalloped Potatoes and Ham. I bought a ham a few weeks ago (when they were on sale for Easter), and I roasted it this weekend. Andy LOVES scalloped potatoes and ham, so I had to put it on the menu.
Wednesday 5/7 – Broccoli Bacon Mac and Cheese. It’s a good way to use up that package of bacon. ;)
Thursday 5/8 – Tilapia and lemon-feta couscous with peas.
Friday 5/9 – Enchiladas! I’m going to try this recipe, and I’m hoping that my avocados will be ready by then.
Have a great week, everyone!
