What’s for Dinner

This week our veggie box brought us: kale, basil, leeks, broccoli, green bell peppers, cabbage, zucchini, celery, apples, and nectarines. Unfortunately Sam put the vegetables away this week, and I have just discovered that he did this by simply piling everything up on a shelf in the fridge, with the result that the basil is already dry and brown.

Robin and I will have kale and bulgur salad for lunch today, and I’ll make pepper steak stir-fry with brown rice for dinner. Tomorrow we’ll have grilled shish kebabs using the peppers and zucchini with marinated lamb, and Wednesday I’ll use the cabbage and the leeks in a pot of borscht. Thursday we’ll have a veggie dinner of brown rice pilaf with broccoli and boiled green beans on the side, and Friday, I might bake some dark bread to go with the leftover borscht. The fruit will take care of itself, and I think this weekend we’ll go feed the celery to the goats at the Tilden Little Farm. Robin loves the farm animals so much: his conversation these days revolves pretty exclusively around chickens, goats, sheep, pigs, and cows, especially as regards the noises respective to each kind of animal. He’s started quizzing us: he’ll run up demanding “What’s sheep say?” and won’t be satisfied until he gets a baaa. The only bad thing about taking him to feed the animals is that he screams so hard when it’s time to go…
