We are so far REALLY enjoying this twice a week menu planning. Much easier to account for perishable foods this way!
Stuffed Peppers w/ gorgonzola & bacon
Sides: Sautéed summer squash, steamed green beans
Roast Dinner: Beast, potatoes, and purple carrots
Another day off, another bunch of boxes. Also from the farmer's market, purple carrots! And baby potatoes! We have one 3lb roast beef from a giant eye of round roast, and it is taking up space in our now-much-smaller freezer so it's got to go. Sounds like roast dinner to me! Plus we can roast off a little extra of the veggies for tomorrow's dinner.
Niçoise Salad over Dinosaur Kale
Mr. Moon is closing at work, which means a close-to-midnight dinner, our downfall the last few weeks. With the abundance of green beans, new potatoes, eggs, and kale it sounded like niçoise salad time. I will have to marinate pretty well everything the day before, but when it comes time to eat, it will be a pretty fast dinner.
Crockpot French Onion Soup
Mr. Moon is closing at work again, and I'm loving the chilly weather. I Pinned a recipe for guinness french onion soup in the crockpot and my sister-in-love asked me to tell her how it goes. This is definitely an active crockpot recipe for the stay-at-home types, because it starts with 1-2 hours of just onions, then a few hours simmering with the liquid, then adding some fresh herbs and browning the croutons. But it looks delicious, and I have an abundance of red onions plus some yellows and leeks, so it sounds like a perfect time to try it.
