Wow, we have a lot of fruit in the house. Umm, still. Yeah, I'm thinking I need to bake some kind of apple/pear tart thing or Christie suggested a cobbler. That's got to be done, we're overrun with fruit! She's suggesting mashed potatoes again this week. I'm also thinking potato/leek/white bean/kale soup to use up some of this bounty. Christie has requested a quinoa/tempeh salad I've made, so that will show up again this week.

Last week saw some simple meals. Lots of steamed broccoli served simply with rice & grilled tofu. Split pea soup using up some celery & a potato (one of the huge ones). We ended up purchasing some collards since Christie wanted specifically to make them with BBQ black-eyed peas, which we served with quinoa. We also made a few lovely salads.
