Better late than never, right? The garden is starting to pump out produce, although the tomatoes haven't really started yet (I did get 4 whole cherry tomatoes to use on last night's salad, does that count?) I am hauling a full bag of my larger cucumbers to work, and will get on my knees and beg people to take them if necessary :) The green beans are really starting to kick in, and I have a whole bunch of jalapenos that are ready, but I'm leaving them on to ripen to red, as we want to try our hand at smoking them for chipotle peppers this year. I left my camera upstairs yesterday when I was down in the garden, and was just too darn lazy to walk back upstairs, so I will take some photos for the garden update later this afternoon when I get home.
Here's the meal plan for the week. Clocks in right around my $35 average, and will no doubt produce plenty of leftovers.
