This week I felt I was hitting the meal-planning wall a bit. It seems like I already just made everything! I had to get out the loose-leaf binder jammed with recipes torn from magazines to get a little inspiration going. The Southwestern Cobb salad came from this binder. All meals include a side of zucchini. Tis the season!
Monday – The Amazing Broccoli Cheddar soup (less fat) from the cookbook Super Natural Every Day: Well-Loved Recipes from My Natural Foods Kitchen. This is my favorite soup recipe. I think I can sneak some kale in there too. Don’t skip the whole grain mustard in the soup – essential!
Tuesday – Swim Team Banquet. I predict Mr. Saver will be enjoying peace, quiet, a Simpsons episode and take-out burrito in our absence.
Wednesday – Jamie Oliver’s Fajitas with refried black beans. This recipe is a mainstay in our home. Jamie never disappoints!
Thursday – Cookout – bratwurst, baked beans and zucchini
Friday – Southwestern Cobb Salad from Cooking Light Magazine. In place of the turkey I will throw a chicken cutlet on the grill with Thursday night’s dinner. This is a recipe I have made before – easy and delicious with summer veg.
