Grocery Bag

We are back in the saddle this week being rather scattered the past 7 days.  I still have our Lasagna in the freezer from last week! This week calls for some of our favorites....and one new attempt.

Day One:

I bet you have never had Thai Larb before....but hallelujah, you are going to love it!  
Sometimes we eat it in lettuce wraps.

Day Two
Butter Chicken and basmati rice

Another favorite in our house...might try it with tofu this time

Day Three

We still love our grassfed cow ;) and our farmers market potatoes!
Remember to start the marinate 36-48 hours's worth it.

Day Four

A new attempt with black beans....

Day Five
Homemade Sourdough Pizza Crust

Another favorite! 
Don't pass this up just because you don't have a sourdough starter 
(just use the regular dough recipe above). But if you have a starter it is worth it!

Blessings on your kitchen!  And remember to keep a balanced perspective:

"Food is essential to life.  Therefore, make it good."
~S. Truett Cathy, founder of Chick-fil-A

....yet sometimes it's best just to... 

"Start where you are.  Use what you have.  Do what you can."
~Arthur Ashe
