Look at that lovely load of organic vegetables we received this week in our CSA veggie bag!

Amelishof organic CSA vegetables week 44, 2010

  • lettuce
  • frisée lettuce (endive)
  • leek
  • Savoy cabbage
  • parsnip
  • aragula
  • aubergine

Menu plan November 5th – 11th

Our menu plan for the week is not completely finished yet (and we won’t be eating at home today nor tomorrow), but these are a few of the dinners we’ll be having.

  • Roasted potato-carrot-parsnip mash (hutspot met pastinaak) with baked (possible caramelized) onions and veggie ‘meatballs’ or burger.
  • Oven-roasted root vegetables (a variation of this Dutch recipe with beet, carrot & parsnip), rösti patties (freezer stash), rocket salad and a veggie burger or Louanne’s spinach balls that were on last week’s menu but got substituted by prefab falafel.
  • Gado-gado, nasi goreng and leftover sambal goreng tofu.
  • For lunch: mini leek quiches.

Some of the Savoy cabbage already went into last Thursday’s lalab. And yesterday Mr Gnoe made pasta with a tomato-eggplant-pumpkin sauce & Parmesan, accompanied by rucola salad with tomato and leftover beet risotto.

We’re having guests next Thursday for a 24 Day 8 mini-marathon and agreed to make something easy to eat on the couch in front of the telly; something like a hearty soup. But since we’ll be such couch potatoes I’m thinking about making the veggie mash… Which means we might not have enough parsnip and carrots left to make the oven-roasted dish another day. No worries, our new CSA loot will be in on Wednesday ;)
