So you might have noticed that the neighbor boys haven’t posted any dishes of their own lately. That’s because we’ve been mooching off our neighbors for several delicious meals lately. We have had a fantastic holiday, with two evenings spent on the deck eating incredible food and an evening walk for junk food (funnel cake and kettle corn) in downtown Kent.
But tonight I’m finally back in the kitchen, and we’re having peas, salad, mashed potatoes, and ham. It feels reminiscent of Easter dinner to me, but the fresh ingredients along with a good appetite from a day of working in the yard will make it all taste great, I’m sure. Be sure to note the festive flag napkins in the background of the picture too!
Though nothing I’m cooking tonight is particularly creative, I like to think that one of my modest talents in the kitchen is making a plan for the week to minimize effort and reuse some staple item that I can cook in bulk early in the week. With that in mind, I’m boiling and mashing all of our potatoes tonight. That will allow me to make a white pizza later this week, as well as some potato bread another night. The CSA certainly demands an ongoing commitment and plan. I’ll let you know how it works out with future dishes this week!
