Week 6 - Back to Life

We took a week off from the CSA (gratefully, they allow us to do that once per 12 week term) while I went across the country for work, then met my family at the Grand Canyon for a few days of camping during spring break.  It was a fantastic but tiring week, and I got really behind on a lot of things, including this blog.  A dear friend picked up our box for us this week, and so as I get back into life and reality, I'm also working to get our family back on a meal plan, and the blog up to date!  And with that, here's week 6!

In the box this week
(top) Spinach, Kale, Swiss Chard, Lettuce, Rosemary
(bottom) Beets, Carrots, Lemons, Apples, Blood Oranges, Strawberries

Meal plan for the week
Sunday: Lemon-Rosemary roasted chicken breasts, roasted Beets
Monday: Spinach & potato frittata
Tuesday: Sauteed Swiss Chard with parmesan, roasted pork tenderloin with herb pesto (including Rosemary and other good stuff from our happy herb garden)
Wednesday: Turkey burgers with homemade Kale chips
Thursday: Thai-style steak salad with Lettuce and Carrots

Our happy herb garden

In the midst of all of this cooking, I realized that there are a lot of yummy cocktails that can be made with blood oranges!  My favorite so far is a simple blood orange juice with vanilla vodka over ice, but I want to try a blood orange ginger cosmo, and perhaps a basil infused blood orange cocktail as well.  Too many amazing ingredients, too little time...

P.S. If this is your first time visiting, read this to learn more about what our family is up to!

This week's title is inspired by the Soul II Soul song of the same name.
