miraculously i'm finished everything & sitting down at a reasonable hour on a friday night.
i am a happy camper.
the valentine's day deliveries went much smoother than last year... by a long shot! that's not to say it was 100% flawless but hopefully by next year, i'll be perfect. when i have a bit more time i'll write a full report on my adventures :)
during all of my prep, i was able to make extras of certain things and freeze them to add to the market menu.
there's the velvety cauliflower soup. it's got lots of indian spice going on but it's not spicy hot. there's cardamom, star anise, fenugreek, ginger & a touch of curry & a hint of lemon. it's gluten-free and vegetarian but there's dairy so it's not vegan.
there's also a whole bunch of the swiss chard & artichoke fettuccine. it's with roasted garlic bechamel, sun-dried tomatoes, parmesan & mozzarella with an herby breadcrumb crust.
small $7.50 large $15
and i was also able to make a few extra of the paella. it's saffron rice with roasted peppers, peas. tomatoes & smoked paprika. it's studded with sweet william's chorizo & shani's farm chicken.
here's the base:
and then it's topped with mussels & lobster.

so, since the snowstorm put a damper on last weekend, i made TONS of salads this week because i'm hoping everyone's in withdrawal ;)
broccoli: bacon, almonds, red pepper, red onion, dried cranberries, creamy dressing
sweet potato: peppers, tomatoes, green onions, cilantro, lime, chipotle
quinoa: asparagus, green beans, artichokes, pinenuts, lemon, whole grain mustard
beet: wheatberries, radicchio, asian pear, balsamic, greens, goat cheese
as far as baked goods go, i was able to make extras of the chocolate bars from the valentine's menu. it's a flourless brownie base topped with thick ganache with touches of cinnamon, cayenne & honey.
the cupcakes are vanilla, pink grapefruit, red velvet, carrot, banana, chocolate & paleo choco-coconut.
there are also cookies, bars, cheesecakes & brownies. i skipped the passionfruit tarts this week - too tired. i did, however, make a batch of cheddar cornbread muffins. they turned out extra yummy - i've already eaten 4!
ok sleep time (it's 8:49). see you tomorrow :)
