The first thing I got a gander at was kabocha squash, marked down to $1/lb. Man, this stuff is so good. The same stall had these beautiful heads of delicate lettuce, so I snagged one of those. And some pistachios made their way into my bag too. But they were up a buck from last week. Ouch.
I've really been trying to up the produce intake lately. I generally eat a lot already. But it's cold and flu season, so I figure that more veggies will help with keeping the immune system strong. Alas, I caught the cold my husband had, so it's my third of the season. There are several folks out at work with the flu, so here's to hoping I don't get that. The whole family has gotten the flu shot, but the baby only got his less than a week ago, and it takes 2 weeks to take effect. I'm a little bit paranoid about the flu, mostly because some people are stupid and they go to work sick. But I digress...
A taste of what we've been eating this week:
Kabocha squash, roasted
Sauteed green beans (originally frozen) and mushrooms in a garlic-soy glaze.
Here's the squash alongside chicken, potato, and pea curry. So I discovered this red curry sauce from Trader Joe's...yum!
Roasted red potatoes.
