More vegetables? More whole grains? Less processed food?


Do you want to relax; have fun in the kitchen?

Roast Cornish Hens

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.

All recipes use fresh, seasonal produce.

Shopping lists help use your time more efficiently and control costs.

Enjoy menus with variety - recipes are rarely repeated within the year. 

Plan ahead - many weeks include one or two (or more) items that are planned for more than one meal.

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.
