I know! I live by the coast and I'm used to May Gray and June Gloom but I work 10 miles inland and have hardly seen sunshine at work all week.

Was in a friend's wedding last night and Thurs night was wedding prep stuff, so I haven't eaten at home the past two nights. Tonight is the reception, so it will be another night of not eating at home.

For lunch today, I have planned falafel, pita, hummus, greek salad w/ feta and olives, stuffed grape leaves, and a big fruit salad. My mother in law is coming over for a belated mother's day lunch.

We had leftovers from dinner at MILs. I don't know what they are called, but they are sort of empanada made with corn meal masa & stuffed with beans or cheese. We had refried beans & mexiacan rice on the side. I love that DS2 had 2 servings of beans & rice & nothing else : DS1 won't touch beans unless I hide them in patties or something like that.

Tonight DH has a bike race at 4:45 so we will probably grab something after that is over with the inlaws. Tomorrow is Sunday dinner at MILs house. We spend alot of time with the inlaws lately....

1 10.5 ounce firm silken tofu(I use whatever I have on hand)
1 tsp cider vinegar
1 TBLS rice vinegar
1 teas sucanat(can anyone tell me what that is lol)
1 TBLS Lemon jiuce
1/2 tsp salt

Blend until smooth
I don't put in the salt and I add garlic.

I've been out of town all week(cooking for omnis, which isn't fun for me), we had

Taco salad in tortilla bowls, with refried beans
mock chicken nuggets and fries
tofu(the meateaters made chicken) stirfry with coconut powder mixed with apple juice sauce.
veggie maki rolls-avacado cucumber/carrot peppers/sweet potato
hummus wraps for lunches

We got a huge organic shipment this week and I went to the farmers market on sat. We've got a ton of great looking yummy fresh stuff, so we'll be eating a lot of raw...There's a local hemp farm that was at the farmers market and I got 3lbs of raw hemp hearts for $20! They are the freshest I've tasted...so good! I also got a 50lb...yes I said 50lb bag of potatoes for $15. So I'll be making some perogies/samosas to freeze

Last night I made palak paneer and basmati rice. That took care of the food service sized bag of baby spinach that I got at the produce store. Ds was overjoyed that I used paneer cheese instead of tofu.

Tonight will probably be some type of pasta and sauce with a salad. Monday evenings we are busy with activities.

Last night was Morningstar Chik'n patties with roasted rosemary potatoes & asparagus. Tonight we are having apricot ginger tofu & snap peas. I haven't decided if I am going to bother with rice yet. No one seems to like it much around here lately.

The mushroom and artichoke lasagna was a hit.

Tonight will be something with kale, white beans, and TJ's meatless Italian sausages. I don't know if it will be a soup or a pasta yet.

Hi all!

I've missed several months of this -- used to post a lot, and then got out of the habit. Now that summer is here and we started to get our farm box again, I'm feeling excited about cooking and sharing and learning new recipes!

Yesterday we got our first box of the year, and per usual for mid-June, it was heavy on the leafy greens. For dinner last night we had a big salad with lettuce and radishes from the box and peppers, carrots, baby corn, chickpeas, sunflower seeds, and dried cranberries from the grocery store. I also made a basil focaccia (using the rosemary focaccia recipe from v'con, subbing basil), and we had strawberries from the farmer's market.

Tonight, we're having a spinach rice casserole (spinach from the box), zucchini bread (zukes from the box) and something called Ginger Butter Choi (choi from the box) that we've never tried before. The choi we got is just gorgeous, but I really don't know much about how to cook it. I'm using the recipe from the cookbook we got with our farmshare last year: The Real Dirt on Vegetables. Wish us luck!!!

Excited to see what other folks are eating during this lovely growing season...
