I continue to base my menu planning on our CSA pick up each Monday. I'm writing this early, though, since I never found time to do one last week after the pick up. I'll alter the menu plan for the week as needed. Last week I did use up some zucchini for baked fries with grilled burgers, I made a batch of fresh tomato soup, some tomato bruchetta (or tomato salad) and I mixed up a batch of bread and butter pickles that are curing in the fridge right now. The basil became pesto and the lettuce made for great salads.
My son loves mini-meatloaf muffins, which I've been making every few weeks for him. They are really easy to make and bake fast, since they are small in muffin tins instead of a loaf shape. This week I'm going to try a buffalo chicken meatloaf recipe, but in the muffin tins, so it will bake faster. I'll also leave his portion non-buffalo'd, since he isn't a fan of Frank's hot sauce yet!
Monday: Creamy Orzo with Chicken Sausage, salad, watermelon
Tuesday: Chicken Sandwiches, summer salad
Wednesday: Zesty Buffalo Chicken Meatloaf (muffin version) and salad +/or CSA veggies.
Thursday: out---we are headed to the Phillies game!
Friday: Peas and Ham macaroni salad
Weekend: BBQ with the family!
I found inspiration for this week's menu plan from reading Julie's monthly meal plan for August. She is so organized to have a whole month planned!
