Monday April 21 through Sunday April 27

It was an interesting week.  We were in and out of the Holler and the schedule was discarded somewhat, midway through the week.  There is still Creamed Greens and Carrots in the fridge, which will make a nice omelet filling one day and a testament to how long some of these dishes can hang out without becoming unappetizing or killing us.  There is also one serving of Tempeh Tacos that Frank can take to work with him one day.  I’ve got some sweet bell peppers that were intended for a chili sauce project but I didn’t get one of those roundtoits.  I find a use for them this week.  We have fresh pears, a fresh hot house tomato and half a clam shell of organic cherry tomatoes.

This week we’ve a few functions that I’ll prepare for and note in this meal plan.  There’s a birthday celebration on Wednesday and I’ll make more of the Grated Carrot Salad on that day to serve as potluck.  On Friday I have a TV cooking appearance, I’ll demonstrate one of the dishes from the Friday menu for that.  It’ll be the Chili non Carne.  Sunday is book club and I’m hosting.  It’s Greek themed (The Magus, John Fowles, a HUGE book and I haven’t finished it yet, yikes).  I’m making an old school, butter-loaded, delightfully rich Spanakopita from the first and greatest of the cool and classic vegetarian cook books, The Vegetarian Epicure.  There.  Now I’ve taken care of all of my excuses to fall away from the meal plan this week and incorporated them into the design.  Mischief managed.

“Chowder is a special kind of cream soup, containing a large proportion of solid food cut rather coarsely.  Modern chowders are often made with vegetables such as corn, potatoes, and even spinach.  They are, as a rule, so substantial that a good-sized bowlful is a hearty luncheon main dish.”  When Meta wrote this note, it was 1942 and hormones (rGBH, Recombinant bovine growth hormone) weren’t a part of the conventional milk supply.  When using dairy, I always use non-diary or organic milk.    When in doubt, grow your own, find a neighbor that raises cows, or buy organic.

It’s a beautiful spring, Easter Sunday!  It’s also moving on towards lunch.  There’s a little (actually, A LOT of) weed-whacking to do to get the blood flow back into my legs after sitting so long this morning composing this meal plan! HA.

 

Recipes will be posted later tonight, or tomorrow.  Meanwhile, I’ve had fun with this meal plan and feel relaxed knowing I’ve got all known and anticipated bases covered for the week.  Things change though, and I can’t but be delighted by that.  Everything’s as it should be.

 

Eat well.  B.
