Week 9 - the meals

It is getting more challenging to create new dishes with only the ingredients I have on hand. But a good challenge! Ingredient substitution and simple dishes are the key here.

I got excited about this meal... Pad Thai (substituting zucchini for bean sprouts) with a side of green beans, garlic, bacon and butter. We love Thai food and this is a great alternative to eating out! I had no peanuts... then remembered the remaining handful of Isaac's trail mix that was uneaten... picked out the peanuts and kiddos got the raisins, and voila! Love these little items not going to waste.

This one too! Super yummy. Beef burgers topped with cheese, bacon, cherry tomatoes and fermented ketchup, served on lettuce. Cool and refreshing Mediterranean cucumber salad - simply peeled and chopped cucumbers with a little plain yogurt, minced garlic, salt and pepper. I discovered my 2 year old is a big cucumber fan, I ended up eating very little of this salad because he kept asking for more ;)

Mashed potatoes with beef gravy - sauteed zucchini, garlic and cheese - rainbow carrot and cucumber salad. Using six of this week's CSA veggies in one meal!

Here again, the Mediterranean cucumber salad. Yummy :)
