This Weeks Menu 6/12-6/22

This week, I've been so bold as to draw up a menu for the next ten days! I figured I bought so much produce over the weekend, I'd better figure out what to do with it all now before it all goes off! I'll link these up with their recipes as I make them =)

Here is what I got during my food shopping spree this weekend:
1 cucumber, 1 daikon, fresh English peas, 1 lb carrots, 1 bunch watercress, 1 bunch scallions, 2 Spanish onions, strawberries, blueberries, lychees, 2 kiwis, mini bananas, 1 mango, 1 lotus root, sushi grade tuna, eggs, 1 tub miso, 1 kamaboko (Japanese fish paste cake), 6 chicken thighs, 1 mackerel, conch fritters. Everything else I already have stocked. My mother was also kind enough to cook a turkey and donate some leftover meat, which I'll be picking up after work. =)

No CSA here... this is heehaw Brevard County. I called our "produce market" and asked them if they have a CSA program... I talked to THREE different people (they were passing the phone around) and every response was "a what?"

But I could get hard boiled duck eggs with chicks in them, or maybe even mangosteen at the Asian market.....

go figure....

You forget... this is Brevard... the closest ANYTHING is a whole foods which is exactly 62 miles away.

My main sustenance and comfort is the variety of ethnic markets in the area... which usually have a variety of prepared foods and wonderful cheap produce.

We do have an Indian market too... right next to the Japanese/Korean one... they often have freshly prepared goodies like samosas or misc breads. Mmmmm.

But it seems Asian is what is easiest to get around here... there are 4 I know of in my immediate area. All catering to different regions.
