How do I plan my meals?!


The way the box scheme works means that you should always have a supply of potatoes, carrots and onions in your cupboard.  You’ll also get some kind of salad most of the year, and a ‘green’ item like cabbage or kale.  Here’s an example of one customer’s veggie week – the takeaway’s not compulsory, but it gives you an idea!

My Veggie Week:

September Standard Veg Bag

Potatoes, Carrots, Onions, Salad leaves, Tomatoes, Kale, Cauliflower, Squash, Mushrooms

(Using Garlic, Leeks and Beetroot from previous week)

Wednesday:

Burgers in buns with salad leaves and tomatoes

Thursday (Cooking for Friends):

Mackerel with a herb crust with:

garlic/ginger kale, roast squash, cauliflower cheese

Friday:

Cook potatoes into wedges.  Half into the freezer.

Eat half with takeaway pizza

Saturday

Mushrooms/tomatoes with cooked breakfast

Roast squash soup, salad

Frozen pie with boiled carrots and leeks

Sunday

Sausage and mash,  steames Kale

Monday

Pasta sauce – Chard, onions, garlic

Tuesday

Carrot/cauliflower/beetroot coleslaw with Jacket potato

If you are a real planner, or have extremely specific likes and dislikes, the box scheme might not be for you but you can shop at either one of our stalls – at the Hornbeam on Saturdays, or at the Hawkwood Farm Stall on Wednesdays.
