Family Dinner Plan: Avocados


Beautiful Bacon avocados in our Mariquita Farms box this week, 5 total. Between lunch and dinner salads, plus maybe a random night with guacamole, these fruits will go fast. Our box also contained Kohlrabi (I scored two bunches from the trade box!), Baby Carrots, Lacinato Kale, Lettuces, Potatoes, French Tarragon and Green-tailed Red Onions.

Here is my menu plan for the week of May 19:

Sunday: Grilled lamb, roasted potatoes, roasted baby carrots, Tuscan Kale Salad with Anchovy-Garlic Dressing

Monday: Kohlrabi slaw with creamy herb and avocado dressing, sloppy joes (double batch in the crock pot), carrots and cucumbers

Tuesday: Cold Carrot Soup with lime and cumin, quesadillas, kohlrabi and ranch dressing

Wednesday: Dinner out between track and music

Thursday: Leftovers, or if nothing remains, then teriyaki salmon, brown rice and whatever vegetables are still around

Friday: Dinner out with friends

I am saving the tarragon for a shrimp salad I plan to make this week for an event, and I bought a big bag of carrots from Mariquita to try out a couple pickle recipes. Right after I get this posted, I am off to the grocery store and have a day of cooking planned. What is on your menu plan this week?
