Grapefruit Madeleines

So I learned a lot over the last week - mostly that I really want to continue going on one well planned shopping trip a week.  I really think we could spend about $60 a week and eat well especially when we can use the things in our well stocked pantry and freezer.  I didn't think about how little trash we'd make while eating this way - we had SO little waste, I guess that was an added bonus.  Like I said earlier in the week I think we bought too many vegetables and not enough grains - we could have used some quinoa, lentils and/or cornmeal.  We'd shop a little different if we did this again, but overall I'd call the experiment a success.

Other news, I just got an email saying I got into the Greensgrow Farm Summer CSA.  I'm so excited about the box of goodies I'll be getting every other week.  What a fun way to experiment with new foods.  It starts in May so I'll be keeping you posted on that when summer comes around.  I also learned over the past week that posting a couple of times a week really doesn't take that much time!  I'm hoping to blog more steadily from now on, although I make no promises!

Here are those grapefruit glazed madeleines I told you about yesterday.  
Again, I just followed this Dave Lebovitz recipe for lemon madeleines and replaced the lemon with grapefruit.  Listen to his directions about chilling everything and you'll have nice poofy madeleines!
