Monday Meal Planning

Less than two weeks until Spring Break! Our weather here has been gorgeous, sunny and mild. My garden is growing nicely; and I'm longing for more beds to plant. For this week's menu, I'm mostly using all our great fresh veggies from the farm. Here's my plan for the week:

Monday: Asparagus and Mushroom Quiche

Tuesday: Fried Chicken (a la Alton Brown), roasted Rutabaga spears with fresh rosemary, salad

Wednesday: Whole wheat spaghetti and meatballs. This is a good recipe to start with if you don't have one you love! I usually use ground turkey, some of my homemade crushed tomatoes/sauce, plus one 15 oz can of tomato sauce, and only one can of tomato paste. You won't miss the sugar, so I recommend you leave it out.

Thursday: Stir fried Rice, based on a recipe from Bon Appetit, modified for veggies on hand

Friday: Homemade Pizza Night

Saturday: Grill night! Grilled chicken, sauteed greens, and baked potatoes

Sunday: Ham, coleslaw, hardboiled eggs, kielbasa... still working on this menu, but it will be based on our family traditions.
