Food This Week 21

Last week my coworkers and I left the office -- they're doing some major construction and we'll all be relocated until the new year. Some people will be working in a temporary office space in the city, but my team gets to work from home instead. So I am looking forward to hot lunches! I hope my hard-working wife will be able to come home to a cooked meal on frequent occasions. And, yes, I will be happy to work in my pajamas.

Produce Box

I used the sweet potatoes (6) and cranberries (not pictured) to accompany turkey dinners. The carrots will likely be used in stock (I have baby carrots for the soup - less prep) along with the onion. Green beans are always welcome! Still have to make plans for the chard. Apples (4) joined the others in the basket. It may be time for slow-cooker applesauce again, especially considering someone in my house just had dental surgery.

Friday: Thanksgiving family dinner ("real Thanksgiving") / turkey sandwich, leftovers, berry pie
Saturday: turkey sandwich, leftovers; stuffed shells

Tuesday: soup, bread, fruit; pot pies / THAW SALMON
Wednesday: hot dogs, oven fries, green beans; salmon, broccoli, rice
Thursday: leftover lunch or oatmeal & fruit; split pea soup & ham? or ham and eggs?

Newly added:
