Weekly Eats…

As I looked at our calendar for the week, and my quite well-stocked kitchen (with vegetables to-be-consumed from our last CSA pickup, after a farmer’s market visit yesterday, and a run to the grocery store today), I realized that this is a week where a menu plan is going to be a must for sanity (two back-to-school nights, plus a full evening schedule of music lessons and scouts….).  I’ve copied the recipes into a single Word document, double-checked my cabinets and fridge.  Let the week begin!

So, here’s what we’re looking at for dinner (breakfast will be cereal and/or waffles and/or hardboiled eggs with fruit; lunch will be sandwiches and/or leftovers, veggies, and fruit).

Sunday:  Homemade chicken noodle soup, with green salad; chocolate chip cookies for dessert!

Meatless Monday: Vegetable and Chickpea Curry; Basmati Rice

Tuesday: Fresh Tomato, Sausage, and Parmesan Pasta (an opportunity to use the unbelievably good Italian sausage from our local butcher); salad

Wednesday: Summer Squash and Feta Bake; Leftovers

Thursday: Curried Beef Short Ribs served with Israeli couscous; tomato & cucumber & feta salad

Friday: Sweet Potato and Butternut Squash Gratin; Sauteed Swiss Chard

Saturday: Green Lentil Soup with Noodles and Mint; homemade bread

And maybe I can even convince the man of the house to make the first apple pie of the season…
