Meal prepping

So it's no secret by now that I do a lot of meal prepping on the weekends.  It's a little easier now that the baby is a toddler - he's a bit more independent at the end of the day, so I actually get about 10-30 minutes to prep dinner.  Still I prefer to have food ready to go, because you never know what's going to hit you.  (This week, I have to work late 2 days for conference calls with Japan.)

My niece does a TON of food prep on the weekend.  I bow to her amazingness.  I only do a bit.  But this week the CSA started, so it was a bit of a challenge!  First week of the CSA, first item wasted (a bag of spicy greens, mostly arugula...didn't get to the parsley-arugula pesto making fast enough).

Here's a little summary of what I made over the weekend:

Herb bread (bread machine - that thing was a little dusty)

Massaged kale salad

Kale chips (these were gone at dinner)

Lettuce (two heads, have washed one so far)

Carrot sticks

Moroccan lentil soup

Spanish rice (rice cooker instead of pot)

Roasted baby beets and fennel (for the salads)

Steamed broccoli
