And we’re BACK! After a rat-a-tat pace the last few weeks, getting back to the normal routine has been a relief for me. Dusty’s been working over at the store all week (alongside the electricians, the walk-in folks, and sort-of the welder fabricating some railings), and I’ve been saying YES to nearly every produce offer we’ve received. With so many of our normal suppliers on hiatus through the holidays, I think I may have been in starvation mode. Figurative, not literal — there was still plenty of food, just not a lot of different options. But now — there are options again!

I think the highlight for us this week was the meatloaf I made on Monday night. I know meatloaf is polarizing — both my parents were apparently traumatized by gross 1950s versions of it in their childhoods, and so it never entered our home as I was growing up — but I like it! I especially like it with a relatively high veggie to meat ratio, a few extra splashes of Worcestershire sauce, lots of parsley, and a Dusty-made gravy. Served alongside some butter-braised carrots and turnips, which turned out really really well.

Anyway! That meatloaf meal was inspired by what we had on hand, which wasn’t a ton. But I’ve been watching deliveries of Brussels sprouts and bok choy and Japanese sweet potatoes and Romanesco cauliflower and tons of salad greens, and I’m going to have a much harder time making decisions this week. In non-veggie news, I’m also enamored with this article about braising a pork shoulder in milk (apologies if I’ve posted this before…I still haven’t done it, and it still looks good!). Maybe Sunday is a pork shoulder, roasted Brussels sprouts, and ??? But on the other hand, I’ve been dreaming about a long-cooked Sunday beef stew, mostly because I once made one that turned out to be the home of the most delicious turnips I’ve ever had, and I really want to recreate it, especially after the turnip success of the other night.

And finally, I recently stumbled across an article (which I have no hope of finding now) about searching for ways to make beets more interesting, and I was reminded of our project to do just that last year. And so I leave you with the results of that group endeavor: https://www.radishandryehbg.com/inspiration/beets

So much good food! So little time!
