It feels like forever since I published my last menu plan, but with school starting today, as well as soccer practices starting this week, I feel as though I need to be extra prepared. I will also be pulling out my favorite pressure cooker and crock pot, to get a jump start on the following weeks.
Our CSA box from Two Small Farms included Tomatoes, Grape Tomatoes, Strawberries, Lettuce, Tarragon, Erbette Chard, Scallions, and Bok Choy. My menu plan for the week of August 24th is as follows:
Sunday: Chard souffle; Quinoa salad with Tomatoes, Artichoke Hearts, Avocado and Scallions; Melon balls and strawberries
Monday: Grilled London Broil (on sale at Whole Foods), grilled scallions, sauteed Bok Choy, mashed potatoes (instant, gah!)
Wednesday: Crock Pot Sloppy Joes (I am going to use the updated version and make a double batch to freeze), carrot sticks
Thursday: Grilled Chicken with Tomato Tarragon Sauce, salad, bread
Friday: Take out and movies
I also noticed that organic seedless grapes and organic cantelope are on sale – I will pick those up for lunches this week. And somewhere in there I need to find time to make back-to-school chocolate chip cookies. Ooh, it will be a busy week!
