Yesterday at 3:00 my Spring Break officially began! For this reason, I’ve decided that I’ll have plenty of time to plan and make my meals as the week progresses. Not only for that reason, but for another bigger reason. I went to the farmers’ market today at 1:00pm. I guess it would be more appropriate to say that I drove to it. I didn’t even get out of the car. I first looked under the pavilion and noticed that there were only two vendors there. Neither of them was J & J Farms. I then looked for the lady who typically has green beans, but she wasn’t there either. I guess 1:00 pm is too late to make a trip at this point in the year. Words cannot express how disappointed I am. It’s seriously weird of me, but it couldn’t be more true. I’m now in a terrible funk. I can’t even find joy in looking up recipes for the meats that I bought at Sam’s. Yes, Sam’s. I went in and purchased a pack of ground turkey (actually two 2.5 lb packages), three dozen eggs (not sure why so many), some “fresh” green beans, a package of blackened salmon (all paleo ingredient list), and a HUGE package of chicken breasts. Looks like this will be a white meat week. I’m struggling with finding good recipes for ground turkey that don’t say meatloaf, burger, or taco in the recipe title. It looks like I might be creating my recipes this week. It could be a kitchen confidence booster…or a HORRIBLE disaster. I’ve had cooking network on for the past two hours trying to find some inspiration. I’ll most likely involve my friend Allison (great, but non-paleo cook) in the creation process for help since she’s also on spring break and sees food as her “art.” I’ve thought about making my own pasta, trying out eggplant,….Crazy THING just happened. As I was typing that last sentence a show came on about making pasta! It must be a sign. You’ll definitely be reading about it at some time this week!
On that semi-happy note, I will close this post before it gets depressing again.
