I am a planner, an over-planner at that. Often, my weekly meal plan lasts for two weeks. When we eat a large salad with our dinner, we eat much less of our entree, and it lasts longer. Other times, grilled cheese just works better after a LONG day. But all the menu planning and shopping is done so I have no problem pushing something off a few days.
Sunday-Oatmeal Energy Bites
The weather is nice, the pools are open; quick and easy breakfast is key. Two of these and a banana make a great breakfast.
Monday- Black Bean and Quinoa Toss
My family is having a big picnic. As usual, I am in charge of dessert, but I am also bringing a healthy addition to the mix.
Tuesday-Southwestern Stuffed Peppers
I love these stuffed peppers. I am making a HUGE amount of quinoa on Monday so I don't have to make it again for these. I don't make anything to go with these-two are very filling.Wednesday-Crispy Asparagus Fries and salmon burgers from Costco
My first CSA pickup-fresh asparagus!
Thursday-Salsa Chicken and fresh green beans
Keeping the oven off again in hopes of keeping the house cooler. Using up the last of the quinoa and salsa with this dish. I am trying to use more beans in my cooking lately, so I will be doubling the black beans.Friday-LEFTOVERS
Salsa chicken and southwestern stuffed pepper leftovers will work well together.
Saturday-Breakfast Casserole and fresh fruit
I love breakfast for dinner.
