As I looked over my kitchen in an effort to plan this week’s menu, I realized how low we are on fresh and frozen produce. Indeed, we are Fruitless in Seattle…er, Nebraska.
Actually, I think it just seems this way because we are so spoiled. I love having a wide variety of fresh fruits and vegetables to choose from when I plan my meals. To get us through the beginning of the week, we do have just a few apples, oranges, and bananas. There is home-canned applesauce in the pantry. I have some frozen peas, green beans, strawberries, and blueberries. There is a little lettuce in the fridge. Otherwise, I’m looking forward to a shopping trip soon! I’ll plan to snap a picture of what I get and share it with you. (To clarify, I’ll share the picture, not the produce. Sorry. My boys eat big.)
Soooo – if you look at the menu plan and think, “Wow, she just keeps putting a generic “fruit” or “vegetable” as a side dish,” that is because by those days I anticipate being completely out of whatever we currently have on hand, and I’m not sure what I’ll be blessed to find at the store. Who knows? It could be that on Thursday, we’ll have kumquats! (Because as we all know, kumquats are plentiful in Nebraska this time of year.) ;)
Sunday, April 28
Easy breakfast casserole, oranges
Chicken sandwiches, carrots, fruit
High School Huddle – Italian pasta bake, green beans, cream cheese corn, frosted brownies (these brownies, this frosting)
How’s your supply of fruits and veggies? Ever had a kumquat? (Can’t say that I actually ever have.)
