If you look around the grocery store check-out line, it seems like every magazine has slow cooker, easy-to-cook, or reheatable meals in its cover headlines right now. It is officially back-to-school cooking time. So despite the unseasonably hot day, I did lots of cooking today. You can see the results of some of that cooking:
That bounty is several containers of pasta, four containers of chili, and one of leftover taco meat (from tonight’s dinner). There’s even a second layer of containers behind those you can see – one last cup of marinara that I made a week ago. It isn’t glamorous, but there’s plenty of comfort food that can be taken for lunches all week long. Plus, I managed to use up almost all of this week’s CSA box already!
The only things left are the salad mix, green beans, zucchini, and some of the garlic. That should all make some great side dishes for evening meals. It makes the prospect of another crazy week seem more manageable to have so many meals taken care of. Sorry it isn’t more exciting cuisine to share recipes, but tis the season!
