Oops - It must be veggie week

I guess it is the influence of spring weather but I seem to have overloaded us with fresh veggies. Everything green looked delicious! So this week will be filled with veggie dishes which will be great.

We started last night with a main dish salad full of romaine, spinach, arugula and frisee with chopped orange and red bell peppers, white radish, carrot and grape tomatoes. We topped it with tuna salad and quinoa and some broken up crostini. Add some orange slices for dessert and it was the perfect follow up to our very meat heavy, rich anniversary dinner the night before.

In addition to more of the mentioned salad veggies also in the frig are fresh small beets and beet greens, rainbow chard, snap peas, broccoli, onions and zucchini. As always we also have frozen French green beans, corn and peas. (This morning I added 2 avocados.)

And there are the fruits - fresh strawberries, cantaloupe, apples, bananas and grapefruit. Frozen blueberries. Canned pears and peaches.

Grains and beans are around too - quinoa, brown Jasmine rice and barley; black, kidney, pinto and cannellini beans. We also have chicken and salmon.

I clearly have been shopping without a menu plan.

Recipe suggestions please!

  1. I think the very long winter (it was 30 degrees when I left the house this morning) has made everyone crave vegetables and fruits.
