I've gotten away from menu planning with interrupted weeks of travel. This week I'm trying to get back into menu planning!
Soccer practice has started. We have yet to make it to one, between rain and travel, but since we will be going to at least one this week I need to have meals pre-made ahead of time since practice is at 6pm. Crock pot to the rescue?!
I know it's summer too, but I really want to make pasta fagioli soup. I want to use CSA veggies that we have, including celery, carrots and summer squash. The benefit will be at least a day or two of good lunches with leftovers!
Salads for dinner...that's been my kick here for a while. It will continue this week too! One of the easiest meals to plan is salad with chicken as the protein. I can cook the chicken in the slow cooker and use it for a couple of days worth of entrees.
Some of my menu planning will change depending on todays CSA pickup. I will incorporate whatever veggies we get this week in the menu.
Monday: Pasta e Fagioli soup with lots of veggies
Tuesday: Slow cooker Balsamic Chicken, salads
Wednesday: Zucchini parm crisps, salmon burgers, green salads
Thursday: We'll hopefully be at the Phillies game if the weather is favorable!
Friday: Crock pot chicken for BBQ chicken salads.
Sunday: BBQ? TBD
