Menu Plan Monday

What a busy couple of weeks- it feels good to be back to a normal schedule...

Sunday: Stir-fried Noodles with Beef and (CSA) Spinach, eggrolls (Lunch: Sandwiches, chips, fruit/vegies)

Monday: BBQ chicken thighs, potatoes, green beans (Lunch: Mac and cheese, fruit/vegies)

Tuesday: Pasta Carbonara (it's from a new RR mag- I looked online and it's not there to link yet), salad, garlic bread (Lunch:Chicken nuggets, fries, fruit/vegies)

Wednesday:Scott cooks. Hotdogs, beans, chips, fruit salad (Lunch: Pizza, I can put fruit or vegies on the menu, but Scott tends to forget to serve them and my food waste becomes out of control!)

Thursday: Scott cooks. Steak Fajitas, melon (Lunch: Spaghetti from the freezer)

Friday:Homemade Pizza Night, Salad. (Lunch: Grilled Cheese and Tomato soup)

Saturday: Pork Chops with mushroom sauce, rice, CSA vegie (Lunch: Kids cook. Leftover Pizza or frozen microwave pizzas)

Last week, I did make a wonderful Chicken Club Sandwich from the newest RR mag as well- The marinade was amazing! Spicy, Garlicky.... that alone makes it a winner!

I also made a Watermelon Granita yesterday- We had a melon that no one wanted to finish eating (overripe- texture was off) so I pureed the flesh, strained it, added some mint-simple syrup that I made for my sun tea and froze... I thought it would be a great treat for the next couple days as the temp and humidity are high- kids said it was ok- I served Scott's in a glass with a splash of Strawberry Rum and some flavored sparkling water- He LOVED it! It was a perfect treat for a hot night!
