I'm not sure what happened last week, except that I completely fell off the menu planning wagon. I just didn't feel like planning my meals, but you know what? I spent the rest of the week wishing I had! Not that we didn't eat pretty well, but I spent a lot more time than usual trying to figure out what the heck I was going to make each night. So I'm definitely back on the wagon this week.
As for last week's healthy dish, I did roast beets for the first time ever and totally forgot to take a photo. It was super easy to do, and I put on disposable latex gloves for the skin removal part, so I didn't stain my hands purple. I liked them so much, I ordered them again in my next CSA box!
Having gotten back on the menu planning wagon, however, I'm looking at our schedule for this coming week and see that we're actually super busy and eating out several days. I don't know that I'll have the time or inclination to cook a new ingredient or dish this week, given our rather crazy schedule. So instead of putting that pressure on myself, I'm going to try kombucha. It's supposed to be healthy, but nothing I've ever read about it has made me think it sounds inviting. And yes, I'm afraid to try it. Which is exactly why I'll give it a go.
And here's my plan for this week:

Dinner - Eating out
Breakfast - Homemade Breakfast Sandwiches
Dinner - Sandwiches, Crudite
