June Meal Plan #4: Frugal Freshness


Delicious recipe and gorgeous photo both from Langdon Cook’s food blog

Yikes! Somehow, a week passed without any blogging updates. Hmm. Could it be because I had multiple social engagements, culminating in Big Sister’s 6th birthday party? Hosting even a low-key family potluck requires quite a bit of prep work… that is, of course, if you want to clean your mirrors and vacuum your floors before your relatives come over.

So, yes. Despite my best intentions, I never published my last June meal plan. And that’s a travesty, because the week’s dinners were super tasty, inexpensive, and easy to prepare. So I’ll just post retroactively!

This meal plan was constructed around a CSA box that included lettuce, broccoli, strawberries, scallions, and snap peas. We promptly gobbled up the snap peas, but the rest were incorporated into the dinners you’ll see below.
