A second try at menu plan Monday, written Sunday night.
Farmer's market on Saturday was eggs, apples, some good conversation and not much more food. We didn't get there early enough for fresh greens from Brines Farm, and by the time we were there Wasem's was out of donuts. Still a lot of fun.
Food coop was pleasant, but I didn't do most of my shopping there. Next week I'll do shopping for spices there, since their selection is best and they are never out of stock of anything.
Trader Joes was picked over on Sunday night - I am usually out on Sunday a.m. so it was hard to believe how much of the store had empty shelves because I know they were full in the morning.
Whole Foods had blueberries (Chile, commercial) for something like $2.99 for 6 ounces. I didn't buy them! especially noting the Frog Blog report that blueberries were incredibly cheap wholesale. As always, I had to dig way way way back in the cooler for the Ann Arbor Tortilla Factory tortillas - it's as though whoever stocks the competing tortilla product (which costs 2x as much) pushes them to the back. Out of stock: red lentils, basil (how, I ask you, can you be out of stock of basil? worldwide basil shortage?).
With that here's the menu plan.
Monday: rice and bean salad with olives; some kind of dressing; I'm looking for a vegetarian Green Goddess style dressing recipe.
Tuesday: potato gratin; frozen mixed veg
Wednesday: Mediterranean lentil soup (recipe from freddyknits), frozen broc, bulgar. The lentil soup uses the red lentils that were out, so I need to figure out how to get some.
Thursday (easy): tortillas and beans
Friday: pasta with leeks and pecans
Saturday: soupe de samedi (Samstagsuppe) + bunny biscuits
Sunday: chili and corn muffins
