October Meal Plan #2: Leafy Priorities


Image and recipe from Food and Wine

There’s no way I’m going to cook through our CSA goodies before I have to leave on a business trip Sunday morning. And so I’m prioritizing the food that will spoil quickly: Thai basil, lettuce, yard-long beans, plus some spinach and kale. I’ve got some celery root, too, from last week that I’m planning to use up in the rabbit dish.

Extra planning challenge: I’ve got two evening meetings this week, so I need an easier meal for myself and a super easy one for Mr. M. (Disclaimer: he’s got awesome cooking skills… but hates prepping anything complicated while simultaneously running herd on two small children and a nibbling puppy.)
