A Weekly Menu Plan can help

It's easy: choose your season and choose a menu

The menus are seasonal, helping you use all the wonderful produce from your garden or CSA.... without repeating the same few recipes.

There are soups and stews in winter; salads and grill recipes in summer

If you follow the menus in order you will see that the 1/2 red pepper left from one week is used in the next week.

The Recipes:

You will see recipes that use 1/4 cup of polenta, or 1/3 cup of rice.  I plan carefully to not make too much food.  We have 'planned-overs' not leftovers.
