Menu Plan Monday – Aug 5

vegis+brusselsprts+vintage+graphicsfairy012

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

FridaySouthwestern 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.

This is one HUGE zucchini plant!

Menu Plan Monday – 6/10

Just a few more days until we downshift into ‘school’s-out-for-summer’ mode!

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.  Don’t skip the whole grain mustard in the soup – essential!

Tuesday – Daughter’s teacher is hosting a party for the end of the year.  We will have a light dinner when we get home as there will be snacks and fruit at the party.  We have a frozen pizza and similar offerings in the freezer.

Wednesday – Meal out to celebrate end of the school year!

Thursday – Turkey burgers topped with salsa and avocado

Friday – Frittata with roast potatoes and kale.  Yogurt fruit parfaits.  I loosely follow the recipe from Cook Yourself Thin but use whatever you like in terms of veg and meat

Menu Plan Monday – April 29

cucumbers-graphicsfairysmbSpring finally feels like it has arrived in the Midwest! I am looking forward to warmer days and a week without appointments after school.  This week’s menu has a lot of vegetables…must be the spring weather!

Monday – Make your own big salad night with leftover Tandoori Grilled Chicken from Sunday as a topping choice.  I am trying a new home-made salad dressing – Honey Chipotle Vinaigrette

Tuesday – Egg Fried Rice – giving the extra vegetables from the salad on Monday a home

Wednesday – 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.  Don’t skip the whole grain mustard in the soup – essential!  I love this cookbook!

Thursday – Frittata with roast potatoes and kale.  Yogurt fruit parfaits.  I loosely follow the recipe from Cook Yourself Thin but use whatever you like in terms of veg and meat.

Friday – planning to go out.  Husband has a birthday this month and we may take advantage of some of the birthday BOGOs that arrive.
