The Purple Plan for the Week of Feb. 13, 2011

When I sat down to plan this week’s menu my goal was to start using the veggies that came in my new 40 pound vegetable box. We got so many beets and more cabbage than I would ever want. Cabbage is not my favorite, so I’m always looking for ways to use it and want to get it out of the way quickly. Here are some of the meals I’ve come up with for the week.

Regular Preparation (in about an hour)

On Valentine’s Day we’ll have...
Fish Tacos with Cabbage Slaw and Beet Chips, Hot Fudge Pudding Cake
Local Foods: Cabbage, Beets (maybe I’ll cut them into hearts)
Fish Tacos:
Beet Chips:

Chickpea Burgers, Rutabaga Fries
Local Foods: Rutabaga, Potatoes (I’ll make French fries for the kids)
This recipe is for parsnips, but I’m going to try rutabaga.
