Tag: Tuesday Savory Carrot Tarragon Tart

Menu Plan Monday, 11/3 – 11/9

This past week my goal was to lighten my dish-washing burden for a bit, and that led to another bonus I didn’t expect: I only went to the supermarket once, since I was using a lot of food from my freezer and farm share. I really enjoyed not having those almost daily quick trips in my schedule. Even though I plan my meals a week in advance, I wind up popping into the supermarket near G.’s school all the time to grab an item or two. I don’t really mind it, except that it’s just another errand to run in the short time the boys are not with me.

Also this week, my mom and I enjoyed the Vegetarian Navy Bean & Kale Soup, while the Triple Tomato Sauce with Ziti was a hit with J. The Baked Sweet Potato Fries were also yummy, though the boys wouldn’t try them. They may make a nice side for Thanksgiving, though.

We have a lot of planned eating out this week, which I’m looking forward to both for the respite from coming up with a dinner plan, and for the good company I’ll be keeping!

Monday: Roasted chicken, Mashed Potatoes with Kale, carrot sticks

Tuesday: Savory Carrot & Tarragon Tart (I’ll make a crustless version), broccoli rabe in garlic and oil, rolls

Wednesday: Leftovers

Thursday: I’m out to dinner; eggplant parm (using Dominex eggplant cutlets), spaghetti, farm veggies for everyone else

Friday: Dinner out in the city with J.; order in pizza for the boys

Saturday: Nothing! Everyone is someplace else

Sunday: Barley Risotto with Chanterelles (intended to make this months ago but never did), farm share veggies
