The farmers market opens on Saturday!!!! I can hardly wait. Since we made such an effort to ski every weekend, I never made it to any of the winter markets. I miss my farmer friends. Along with the onset of market season comes my annual purge of pantry and freezer items. You'll see what I mean.
Monday: Tom Kar Gai soup, or at least a version or it, with leftover chicken, coconut milk, a random can of hearts of palm and some fish and chilli sauces that are nearing their birthdays. It's really good.
Tuesday: Chicken salad in homemade pitas with Romain lettuce
Wednesday: Pork Chop Pizziaola with pasta. We'll see how this goes. It will use some pork chops I've had since we bought our 1/4 pig in October and our store of frozen tomates.
Thursday: Mystery Block of frozen chili-looking substance over rice with some sauteed shredded zucchini.
Friday: Taco Night!
Saturday: Pasticcio (or lasagna with beschamel instead of ricotta) using the leftover pork and tomato sauce.
Sunday: Some manner of roasted, fried or grilled chicken and vegetable sides from Saturday's market. Suggestions welcome.
