Month

Kitchen World War II

Our actual plan was to deal with the encroaching fall items (like beets) and to celebrate the last of the summer produce (tomatoes). Throw in a 4-day trip to Texas, a 3-day super-busy conference for Jon, and a desire to eat down some of the leftovers in the freezer as well, and a very ... diverse menu comes out.

Menu for the week of October 5 (Allied Forces)

Weekend - American Grill

Monday: Russian Borscht

Tuesday: English (ish) Guinness Cottage Pie

Menu week of 18 October

This week we took advantage of the first fall crops to have a harvest-focused menu. We had thought ahead a little and bought some of the staples we'd need at Harris Teeter the week before. So we had no need to go to Safeway, and bought everything for the week at Eastern Market.

Menu for Week of October 25

Plan for this week was a bit haphazard, but here goes:

Sunday - [[http://audreyandjon.com/blog/20091025/another-great-community-event-pc-market|Potluck Pig Roast at P&C Market]]

Monday - Chili (made on Sunday by Jon) + cole slaw

Tuesday - Big Salad + Baked Sweet Potatoes

Wednesday - EBLfgT (aka Egg, Bacon, Lettuce, and fried green Tomato) sandwiches + cole slaw

Thursday - Gnocci with Tomato Cream sauce

Friday - Jake's B-day celebration in the 'hood

Menu for Week of October 31

We have peppers... lots of peppers. And winter is coming soon. Mexican week!!

Sunday - Grilling (admittedly non-Mexican)

Monday - Both out

Tuesday - Chile Frittata Casserole with Enchilada Sauce

Wednesday - Shrimp Tacos with Salsa Verde

Thursday - leftover Chili Frittata Casserole

Friday - Beef Tacos
