Menu Plan: Second Sunday of Lent 2013
In January, a friend told us about a produce co-op and we've been getting two boxes of organic produce each week for the family through that. It has come in handy now that we are in Lent, especially. It has also stretched my creativity to make our meals around what we get, rather than what we pick at the store. In a way, I did that already, shopping on sale and in season, but I still made the choices myself. We've tried some things we normally don't or wouldn't this way, and we have gotten to eat more of some things that were relatively rare treats for us, as well. The price is very reasonable for the quantity of organic produce we're getting, in fact, it might even be less than we were paying for conventional in the same quantities. Since we have started getting our weekly boxes, I haven't had to buy much in the way of produce at the store, a few herbs, a little in the way of citrus and onions have basically been it.
I have had a tiny bit more time for knitting, so I will try to post some photos of what I've made and am working on now. I may be able to post some recipes from our Mardi Gras doughnut party as well. I think I have a few other recipes I was supposed to post and will try to get to those during Lent. I forgot to mention that Alexander's name day is this week. We will be doing some fun things for that on Tuesday.
