We've improved our grocery list:
Numbers now appear next to ingredients on the grocery list. They correspond with the day of the week (ex. 1=Mon; 2=Tues, and so on) so if you decide you're only making Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday's dishes, you can easily just cross out all the #2's on the grocery list. Convenient, eh?

You can't have autumn without butternut squash, and this week it's making its Weeky Eats debut with some delicious brown butter and farro. We're also introducing another way to repurpose your meals. Our hearty lentil and sausage soup easily transforms itself into the perfect stuffing for red peppers. We finish off the week with one of my favorite comfort foods - warm and filling noodle soup.
