We're an ordinary family, complete with picky eaters, budget concerns, and time management issues. But to prove that "eating local" works - even for busy families in cooler climates - we're trading Chick-Fil-A and goldfish crackers for grassfed meat and local produce. Join our adventure in learning to eat (sort of) sustainably for the summer!

Week Five menus

In the interest of not repeating myself every darn week, I'm only going to list dinners here.  You can assume that for breakfast the kid is probably having a peanut butter and nutella sandwich, I'm having either oatmeal or leftovers, and at lunch we're both having some sort of leftovers or salad.

Gretchen's indulgence: lunch at the bagel store
Liza's indulgence: lunch at Chick-Fil-A

Ridiculously good cabbage rolls, German potato salad, first sweet corn of the year

Zucchini and tomato stew served over Ohio City Pasta ravioli, sweet corn, leftover potato salad

Chili**, cornbread, coleslaw, green salad


Chicken salad on "Like County Line" bread, misc. leftover side dishes

Wednesday and Thursday:
I forgot to write it down, so it can't have been anything that special, and it probably involved leftovers out of the freezer

** It was going to be great chili, with organic everything and local ground beef and local sausage, and then I burned it really, really badly when I was reheating it and we had to throw out an entire double recipe of it.  Very frustrating, and totally a good excuse to call Domino's and get something that was actually edible to serve to our guests on the 4th of July.  Pizza is patriotic, right?  Right?  And more than a week later, I'm still trying to soak the scorch off of the bottom of my expensive enameled cast-iron Dutch oven.  Buggrit.
