Weekly Meal Plan)
Another week, another menu planned: most of the days I stick to my planning with only occasional slip ups. Not all recipes I choose are to my liking, but I have found some new favorites that I want to add to my panoply of recipes.
In weeks 52 and 1 my vegetable subscription service is closed for the holidays, so I’ll be completely free to pick and choose. Using the vegetables in my subscription does pose a challenge I had not considered: not all vegetables occur frequently outside of the Netherlands. This means that the app I am using (mostly for the UK/US markets) does not always have fitting recipes. Some of the more exotic (mostly purely wintertime vegetables) produce can be a new challenge to cook with, but luckily my supplier also provides recipes. They also have a large database of recipes I have yet to look at:
Kievit - Recepten.
Over the holidays I do not have too many big feasts I need to eat my way through, it’s all very manageable. This means on my days off work, I can experiment with more expansive dishes. One result of this experiment is that I can confirm that I love cooking and I might even dip my toes into the baking aspect of food preparation.
