My GF, Locavore-ish Weekly Meal Plan

My adorable husband got up early this morning to make me a pot of tea and head off to an environmental studies conference (pertaining to his PhD research). I bundled up and trudged out with him, though, to hit up the farmers market. I’m glad I got up early, because the snow is really coming down now! 

This week I stocked up on root veggies like parsnips because I want to experiment with making Spiced Parsnip Scones and some sweet potato curry. I also have a few beets and may take another stab at making Gluten Free Beet Bread

Now let the meal planning begin!

This week I’m planning around the following farmers market finds:

* 3 organic beets                                 * 3 organic watermelon radishes
* 2 large sweet potatoes                      * 1 large organic turnip
* 3 organic parsnips                           

If you'd like to learn how and why I meal plan around local foods, you can check out my post on How and Why I Meal Plan (GF and Locavore-ish).  

I'm taking another crack at my GF Beet Bread to get the texture just right
