Um–where did half the year go?
I didn’t really menu plan last week because we were on vacation and we ate out a ton more than I think we ever have on vacation. We were moving around a lot and weren’t gone long, so cooking everything and keeping it cold in the insane heat was not a headache I wanted to deal with. But when we got back we had to go to the store because we did a great job of cleaning out the fridge before leaving…and on the way I totally made a menu plan for the rest of the week on the back of the shopping list. I just couldn’t help it!
More eggs probably–I have a source for local fresh eggs and they are just amazing. I also want to make some Chia seed pudding–it seems perfect for a cool, filling breakfast on a hot morning! And of course I have some smoothies–maybe some more of the strawberry/banana/spinach variety.
For me–baked chicken thighs with veggies: beets, peppers, green beans, maybe tomato, onion
For my daughter: she picked out a crustless Quiche that she wants to try. It will have regular cheese, so I won’t be able to try it, but it sounds delightful.
Burgers, grass-fed hot dogs, beans, corn on the cob, salad
Shrimp with noodles, veggie
Best Damn Pork Chops, rice pilaf
Fish tacos and sautéed veggies
Shepherd pie (family recipe–I don’t think I actually use a recipe when making this!)
I would like to make this again–it turned out amazing and I even used frozen berries! I haven’t had a good cobbler in years and since no one else likes it around here I had to eat it up myself. It would be good as a breakfast too! Vegan Gluten-Free Blackberry/Blueberry Cobbler
