Menu: Aug 15-21

We did not have a lot of new recipes last week, but I did love the menu we had and there is a link to almost every recipe! My husband and I have been taking part in a produce Co-op (first time I've ever used a food Co-op) so I've been putting together my dinner menus on Saturdays after I see what produce I have to work with. I feel it stretches me from my 'norms' and actually makes me put effort into my menus. Plus it makes me plan my menus around produce, which is something I am loving as it shifts the focus from my typical comfort foods to healthier foods (most of the time...) In addition I am actually back to planning my menus, so there is no more asking, "What's for Dinner?"

Here's our Menu:
Monday: Cauliflower and Cheese, Steak Salad (leftover steak and greens), Strawberries
 Tuesday: Zucchini Boats
Wednesday: BLT Pizza
 Thursday: Spaghetti & Meatballs, Breadsticks
Friday: Grilled Corn and Veggie Burgers (I did not use the alfalfa sprouts or the lemon zest)
 Saturday: Bean and grain salad (Used left over grilled corn, and grilled squash, did not add any pasta or other grain.)
Sunday: Spinach, leek and bacon quiche, Zucchini Pancakes

Vote for the recipe you want to see next Thursday.  Chicken Taco Salad won this week's poll and will be posted this Thursday.

  1. Oh, I *love* BLTs... I never would have thought of transforming it into a pizza... wonderful idea. That Mac and Cheese looks delicious too... so creamy! My wife and I take turns to cook, one week each. She never tells me what she's making anymore because I always end up interfering :D
