4-day Cabin Plan

Jon and I have found a great rental "cabin" about 1.5 hours outside of DC (not giving our secret away!). We go there about once or twice a year to unplug and relax. We invariably have a great time.

Each time we go, we plan a menu and bring everything we need to execute it. To help with future planning, here are menu options and shopping lists.

Summer Option

Lunch D1 (optional): Stop at Ashby Inn, Goodstone Inn, or Trummer's On Main.

A Tasty Breakfast

Pan seared tamale breakfast with fresh fruit

We came to the realization that if we want to preserve treats from this summer for the winter, then we need space to do that. We've done pretty well on our house-canned goods, but lacking a Freezer of Unusual Size (I don't think they exist), this meant we had to find uses for some items stored away in there currently.

Menu: Is it spring yet?

OK, this winter thing is getting a bit old. This was eat-down-the-freezer week, 'cuz once fresh food is available again, it won't be a high priority.

Saturday: We team-cooked with Joe and Erin on a quest for a tasty, fancy pescetarian mean. We ended up with Jose Andres' Tuna Stew with an olive oil and egg yolk foam.

In which we bring out the big guns to defeat the last few months of winter vegetables.

Playful sushi

We started the week with some oysters from BlackSalt, and then dived in to a full asian-inspired week.

Sunday was roll-your-own sushi, and we got playful with some fried wonton wrappers and seaweed salads from BlackSalt

Monday was steam buns using some leftover ham from the previous week, and steam buns frozen after making waaay more than we could eat in this recipe
