Mixed vegetable and white bean soup in the slow cooker. It's a good way to use a surplus of veggies and a quart of chicken stock from the freezer.

I made kale chips for the first time today... yummy!    I made a little different than the recipe but used only kale, a little butter flavored cooking spray, and popcorn salt.
I love kale chips!  I'm missing my CSA boxes and farmer's market trips this year.  Maybe I should see what the kale at the grocery store looks like this week.

Tonight I'm trying out a Sweet Potato and Cauliflower Frittata (https://www.toopreciousforprocessed.com/recipes/2015/12/sweet-potato-and-cauliflower-frittata), and I'm making a batch of Corona beans from Rancho Gordo (super excited for these!).  I'll offer my BF some toast as well, if he needs more to round out the meal.  I usually want to have a green veggie, but none of those left until I shop on Friday (I do have some salads mixed up for the next few days for myself).

Some of our local farmers are doing delivery, and some of the farmer's markets will let you pre-order and do curbside pickups.

I'm going to attempt to go to the farmers market this afternoon in time to get a box of peach seconds. Unfortunately, I have to be back here an hour after they open for a work call, so my plan is to get there early, get a place in the front of the line, read a book, and get in and through as quickly as possible.

Meanwhile, considering that I'll be on calls 5-7 or so, I'm cooking chicken in a crockpot now for enchiladas (that I'll assemble around 2).

Black bean and sweet potato tacos.

Edit: black bean and sweet potato tostadas. The filling was a bit too mushy for tacos but was perfect on the improvised tostada shells (tortillas brushed with oil and baked).

Homemade pizza's on pitta bread bases.

Tomato paste, herbs, cheese, salami, leftover roast beef diced, mushroom, capsicum, tomato, bocconcini on top.  All of it was stuff in the fridge or freezer already.  Yum.

Tomorrow will be wraps using the pitta bread, more of the left over roast refried in lots of garlic, cheese, lettuce, capsicum, tomato and greek yoghurt.  Again, all from the fridge.

Stir-fry with chicken, bok choy, onions, and napa cabbage, probably over rice. I haven't decided on the sauce type, but peanut sauce is sounding pretty good right now.

Lots of fresh veg from the garden, so a stir fry of boneless chicken breast, cabbage, summer squash, onion, carrot, broccoli, string beans, served over Costco's cauliflower rice.

Tonight, spaghetti and meatballs with a salad.

I love Panzanella, and would eat it at least once/week, but 1) the bread I really like for it is currently not available (and may never be again, alas) and 2) the other people in my house don't like it as much as I do.

Tonight, we had salmon cakes, green beans, and rice. Boring, but I managed to have enough leftover rice to make rice pudding with tomorrow, which will serve when one of the teenagers needs something semi-healthy to stuff in his maw. Perhaps I'll even get some!

We made Tuscan chickpea soup and had some leftover roasted brussels that survived a week in the freezer nicely. 

We're just back from a road trip where we ate out every night so it was nice to have a homecooked meal and, OMG, vegetables.  Small town restaurants/diners/etc. just do NOT have vegetables to speak of.  The best I saw on menus in the last couples towns was a taco salad, tri-tip salad and cobb salad.  I.e. everything had tons of meat and cheese and otherwise not much more than iceberg lettuce.  I can really feel the lack of greens over the last few days.

Tomorrow night is tofu stir-fry.  We need to make up for lost veggie-time.

I tried two new Budget Byte recipes tonight.

This one (with balsamic vinegar instead) was excellent : https://www.budgetbytes.com/super-fresh-cucmber-salad/

This was pretty decent : https://www.budgetbytes.com/beef-cabbage-stir-fry/

I thought the beef cabbage stir-fry tasted even better with shredded chicken. Last time I made it, I used rotisserie chicken meat.

Last night I made chicken enchiladas again (by request), so I had some leftover tortillas and avocado.  Tonight, I'm making myself a wrap sandwich with hummus, avocado, roasted zucchini and squash, with peppers and onions.  Kale chips on the side.

Falafel with a bag of chickpeas that... very old. Like, a year past "best by" date old. We had to soak twice as long, but it helped clear out one more item of the pantry! (Also making an appearance: pita, homemade tzatziki, tomatoes, cucumber slices, and cherries for dessert.

If you can get red curry paste, this version:http://nwedible.com/thai-red-curry-cabbage-salad/  is quite good.  I add the cabbage at the end and cook it briefly (especially if I'm using regular green cabbage) and usually serve it over rice.

Carnitas with diced tomatoes & jalapenos from the garden. I'd go all in with a pico de gallo, but don't want to go to the store for cilantro, and cilantro was the one plant that failed to grow this year.

What is white spaghetti sauce? Like a cheesy alfredo type thing?

We scrapped our dinner plans last night, as my husband forgot he'd purchased a rotisserie chicken & we needed to eat the remaining leftovers. We made a pretty passable version of a local restaurant's chicken salad specialty. It was a kale salad with peanuts, rotisserie chicken (heated with chicken, garlic, onions & butter) & a poppy seed dressing.

I also made a pico de gallo like topping (no cilantro, however) & it was delicious. I'll make more tonight to go with the carnitas. It uses up the tomatoes & jalapenos, so win/win.

I love this thread along with the "Use up everything in the house" thread. The combination is awesome.

Tonight: Thai "veggie" curry over leftover cappelini (that I used as noodles in spring rolls the other night). Will use leftover roasted green beans as well as the few scraps of chicken left from fajita night, plus any other "gotta be used" veggies in the fridge. I might try to whisk in some of hte peanut sauce from the spring rolls but might try a little in a separate bowl so if it's gross I don't taint the whole batch.

Ground beef, kale, and sweet potato skillet (https://gardeninthekitchen.com/ground-beef-kale-sweet-potato-skillet/).  Might adjust the seasonings some.  Will serve with a bunch of roasted broccoli, and maybe a piece of cornbread.

This summer vegetable medley from Serious Eats: eggplant, tomato, zucchini, green pepper and chickpea, cooked together and served over rice.

https://www.seriouseats.com/recipes/2011/08/chickpea-stew-with-eggplants-tomatoes-peppers-recipe.html

We had bacon and eggs last Friday, and I poured off and saved the bacon grease and used it to make savory cornbread. We'll have that with mixed berry compote and whipped cream for dessert.

Yep alfredo! Quite gross with a lingering aftertaste tbh but there's no way i'm going to not eat something i've purchased just because it's quite gross with a lingering aftertaste. I'll just wait the four hours till it's time to brush and use the eensy dollop of toothpaste to bring the world back to right..

Um....yuck? I wouldn't eat something quite gross with a lingering aftertaste. Still, at least you have the everlasting toothpaste tube. You could just brush right away and remove lingering aftertaste, you know.......

Jarred Alfredo sauce is gross, and it's probably more expensive (or at least not cheaper) than the homemade version. But one really would want a cheese grater for the homemade version.

This may have been mentioned in here before, but the Maesri brand of Thai curry paste is spectacular. We've been muddling along with Thai Kitchen and just recently bought a sample pack of cans of the Maesri on Amazon. WOW. Made it last night - 1 can of paste to 1 can of coconut milk. Made the most delicious curry, with plenty for our lunch today (there are just 2 of us). So delicious I had to grab the can out of recycling to take a photo for friends. I dreamed about it last night.

Worth seeking out. Maesri brand. Just an FYI.

Was it their red curry paste? I believe we've used that before and it's quite good.

In the past we've made both red and yellow curry paste from scratch, but found that the red is kind of a hassle and not any better/cheaper than what you can buy. On the other hand, yellow is great and easy to make a big batch and freeze in smaller portions. We've used this recipe with great results: https://pinchofyum.com/easy-homemade-yellow-curry-paste

Tonight will be big salads, sort of a cross between cobb and nicoise. We have leftover chicken, green beans, hard-boiled eggs, bacon, and scallions to use up. Plus, this will use up a tomato and avocado.

It was actually the yellow (already packed the red and green from the sample pack) which I usually don't love. Thanks for the homemade recipe though! :)

Not for tonight (unless you count the leftovers) but yesterday I simmered for 4 hours a pork shoulder in five cups of red wine with spices, sliced onions, sliced red potatoes, some chopped celery, and baby carrots; served over rice using a generous pour of the natural gravy.  I might add some more mixed vegetables as a side (Normandy blend frozen) in a tomato paste and heavy cream sauce plus some cayenne pepper for kick, for some more variety tonight (30 mins max prep time) as the meal was delicious but lacking in complexity.

Apparently I am unknowingly following in @OtherJen 's footsteps -- I was planning to make a nicoise salad last night but the weather cooled off a bit and I made chili.  (Also, what did you think of the turkey and zuke patties?)

The salad will be this evening: boiled potatoes, eggs, and green beans (added to the pot in that order, with a timer on the eggs), fresh tomatoes, capers, anchovies, canned tuna. I just picked a bunch of basil from the garden that was thinking about starting to bolt, so it'll be a basil-y vinaigrette on top.  (I love that I can throw fresh herbs, stems and all, into a pyrex cup with some oil and vinegar and my stick blender will grind everything smooth.)

The turkey-zucchini patties were really tasty, although I added some quick oats to soak up some of the extra moisture. Next time I might try soaking the grated zucchini. I didn't have sumac on hand so I just left it out of the yogurt sauce. Still tasty.

Stick blenders are such great tools. We use ours all the time for sauces and dressings.

Lubia polo (Persian dish of rice, ground beef, green beans & lots of flavor. Cinnamon! Saffron!) It's delicious

Ooh, this sounds good.  I'm always looking for ground beef recipes and getting lots of green beans out of the garden right now.  Is there a particular recipe you like? 

I did some impulse shopping when I stopped by the grocery store, so tonight I'm grilling a nice ribeye that was marked down.  We'll split that and have it with grilled summer squash, sauteed mushrooms, and a bleu cheese wedge salad.

Tomorrow I'm off work and planning to smoke a rack of ribs and on the side we'll have braised homegrown collards and some other type of side dish (maybe maybe biscuits?)

@horsepoor - I like the recipe on My Persian Kitchen (I don't think we are supposed to include links, but a quick search there should turn it up). I use ground beef, which is the way my husband's family has always made it.

I think tonight will be cauliflower crust pizza
