Our organic vegetable box from Two Small Farms was packed with a large head of Romaine Lettuce, so this week’s menu is going to involve quite a bit of salad. I think I am going to bring back the Taco Salad from a few weeks ago, as that was a hit with the kids, plus I think it will travel well to our Tuesday swim meet.
The rest of our box contained Strawberries, Chantenay Carrots, Bianco di Maggio Onions, Basil, Green Beans, Fennel, and Potatoes.
Here is my menu plan for the week of July 12:
Monday: Taco Salad, carrot sticks
Tuesday: Swim Meet
Wednesday: Supper Club at the Pool – grilled onions, a Green Bean and Fennel Salad (no mushrooms) or Potato and Green Bean Salad or Green Bean and Potato Salad with Pesto, along with the ubiquitous hot dogs and mini-burgers from Trader Joes.
Thursday: Freezer surprise – still getting our standalone freezer ready for the big influx of meat from Morris Grass Fed.
Friday: Kid’s Night Out!
I am also feeling like I could use a whole grain salad in my life, so I might make one to have on hand for lunch or snacks. This Farro, Radiccio and Roasted Beet Salad looks good, I could use Fennel instead for a different flavor profile.
What is on your menu plan this week?
