As of Sunday, April 26, the last of the April birthdays have been celebrated and we are moving on to May. However, we still have some residual celebrations this week, without kids, so my menu plan for this week centers around foods that they will enjoy without us, things I can make ahead, and as always, ways to use our produce box.
In our box this week, we received: Chard, Leeks, Lettuce, Nantes Carrots, Broccoli (I traded for double leeks), Sugar Snap Peas, Cilantro and Navel Oranges. And here is my Menu Plan for Monday, April 27:
Saturday: Grilled Skirt Steak with Cilantro sauce, Chard souffle, salad, coconut cream pie
Sunday: Chicken Scaloppine with Sugar Snap Peas, Asparagus and Lemon Salad (my birthday dinner!), bread, Strawberry Cake
Monday: Adults out – kids will have pizza (it has been a while!)
Tuesday: Grilled Leeks, Barley Risotto with roasted Beets (leftover from last week), salad
Wednesday: Adults out – kids will have Orange-Glazed Chicken with Carrots and Brown Rice (from Everyday Food, April 2009)
Friday: TGIF Mini-block party
