Serendipitous Gnocchi

A serendipitous moment at the West Side Market this weekend. Strolling the produce and food stands, SPH pointed out:

How often do you even see Sweet Pea Gnocchi in your market? And next to the pumpkin? I'd venture to guess, um, never.

There was so much good food at the WSM, a mini-vacation from the ordinary:

Homemade dried fruit, including kiwi. Love it.

The boys are back at school this morning after Spring Break. It feels good to fall back into our weekly routine, and for them both to have a bit of a break from each other. R and G love each other to pieces, but even the closest of siblings need some time apart.

Our weather is different this week, more seasonable, instead of the mid-80s that graced most of last week. I'll be making a batch of chili this week, wondering if it will be until the fall that we enjoy it again.

Our weekly meal plan:

Greek Orzo Pasta Salad, Pineapple
Slow Cooker White Chili (chicken-less for me), Salad
Grilled Portabella Burgers, Roasted Cauliflower, Baked Beans (sans bacon for me)
Spring Risotto, Kiwi
Taqueria Asada Tacos(meat for the boys, mushroom or tofu for me), Refried Beans, Rice

Have a sweet week,
