stocking up

i'm going away again (squeeee, yipee, yahoo). i'll be gone from january 16th to the 23rd & will be missing an entire weekend at the market (shock, horror, dismay). this weekend will be your only chance to load up for a couple of weeks. i've made sure that the freezers are full & i'll bring extra meals & soups with me tomorrow.

here's what i've been up to this week:

chicken parmigiana

it starts off with a base of buttery fettuccine, then gets topped with a spinach marinara, then comes the parmesan-panko crusted chicken breast & finally its topped with mozzarella, parmesan and fresh basil.

small $10  large $20

i also made some grain-free versions with sauteed mushrooms, peppers & zucchini in place of the pasta and without panko on the chicken.

small $10

there's also a new batch of brisket & blue:

it's braised getaway farm beef brisket with red wine, leeks, pears, tomatoes & herbs with a side of creamy blue cheese gnocchi with roasted garlic & kale.

small $10 large $20
(side dishes of just blue cheese gnocchi are $7.50)

i also made some grain-free versions with loads of lightly dressed massaged kale & crumbled blue cheese on top.

small $10

here's a full list of frozen entrees:

beef shepherd's pie      small $10 large $20
moroccan meatballs     large $20
holiday pulled pork     small $10 large $20
lobster mac & cheese      small $12 large $24
cheddar-bacon mac & cheese     large $18
mediterranean vegetable ragu     small $9 large $18
lentil shepherd's pie     small $9
vegan curry    small $9 large $18

i also have a few tourtieres left & side dishes of cranberry-sage dressing.

getaway farm pork, warm spices, savoury crust - $20

potatoes, bread, onions, celery, dried cranberries, herbs - small $7.5 large $15

i've also been a bit of a soup factory lately trying to replenish all my stocks for the cold weather months. this week it was a new batch of disco soup - aka beet, parsnip & pear.

it's vegan, gluten free & paleo.

and it's only taken me three years (jeepers), but starting this weekend i'll have a proper list for the freezer door which clearly labels which ones are vegan, vegetarian, gluten free or paleo.

here's the list of current flavours:
carrot, apple, ginger
curried butternut squash
beet, parsnip & pear
white bean, lemon & kale
vegan vegetable stew
black bean & corn chili
baked beans
roasted pepper, tomato, chipotle
chicken stew
beef stew
seafood chowder

there are three types of salad this week too - all $5 each. 
the broccoli is the same as always.
the beet has pears, fennel, wheat berries, red wine vinaigrette & goat cheese.

there are a few vegan ones as well.

and the quinoa had a greek makeover with olives, peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers, roasted zucchini, basil, oregano, lemon, garlic & feta.

there are a few vegan versions of this one too.

and as usual, there will be loads of sweet options, those are easy to see though so i don't feel the need to write about them.

lastly, just a couple reminders that i will be at a halifax crafters pop-up market at two if by sea in dartmouth on february 8th & i will be doing my valentine's day 3-course dinner delivery service again this year (menu will be posted soon) so mark your calendars.

hope to see you all over the weekend... and i know it sounds desperate but please come on sundays too. you don't even have to buy anything, i just need people to chat with :)
