it's official, it is the grumpiest time of year!
everyone's spirit seems to have been broken by mother nature - my self included. i think the general consensus is that sleep, sweatpants & comfort food are the only things to cure the winter blues (if not a trip to the tropics).
...or maybe a cake. it seems like i've been on a bit of a tear.
i've also been trying to switch up my sweets spread a bit. this week i'll have passionfruit shortbread bars & the raspberry cheesecakes are now gluten free with an almond crust.
i also made a ton of savoury comfort food this week!
lately it's been incredibly difficult to keep shepherd's pie in stock. even though i just made it two weeks ago, i replenished the regular & paleo versions.
small $10 large $20
i think mac & cheese may be the quintessential comfort food. this week i added double smoked bacon, broccoli, cauliflower, cheddar, parmesan & mozzarella.
small $9 large $18
beef stew is another comfort classic & i finally restocked my supplies - potatoes, turnips, parsnips, carrots, tomato, herbs & peas.
as of tomorrow, the chicken, beef & seafood soups will be $8. the vegetarian varieties will remain at $7 - thanks for your understanding.
to offset all the hibernating & #stormchips, i have lots of salads for the weekend. the broccoli is the same as usual but i have 2 vegan, gluten free options as well.
3-bean: cucumber, celery, red pepper, garbanzo, adzuki & green beans, dill, dijon & garlic
quinoa: since everyone seems to be feeling under the weather, i made the vitamin c version with pink grapefruit, fennel, baby arugula, red onion & parsley
ok i think that about wraps it up. the freezers are brimming at the moment & there is a ton of variety. this is both a good & bad thing - while it's great that i have tons of options, i will without a doubt forget to pack something tomorrow morning so please bear with me as i get sorted.
sleep well & i hope to see you all over the weekend (don't forget sunday!).
