Menu Plan Monday - Week of 7/15 - 7/21



As you will see below, I list items that have been grown in our garden (in italics), purchased locally and/or are Organic!


This week is challenging as my daughter has swim lessons every evening, so I will be planning meals that can be served cold and at the pool!  

Breakfast

Cereal, fruit
English muffin w/ peanut butter, banana
Homemade Banana Bread, fruit

Lunch

Whole wheat tortilla w/ hummus, turkey, local tomatoes and local spinach, carrot sticks, fruit

Whole wheat tortilla w/ Organic local black beans w/ combination of some or all of the following: salsa,
Organic local grass-fed cheddar cheese, local tomatoes and/or organic plain yogurt, fruit

Green salad w/ local hard boiled eggs, local tomatoes, carrots, Organic local grass-fed cheddar cheese and honey mustard dressing

Leftovers

Supper

Sunday - Snacks after a late afternoon bridal shower.

Monday - Basil, Beyond Pesto (recipe adapted from Edible Columbus).  The only modification I made was I used red wine vinegar in lieu of the white wine vinegar the recipe called for. 

Tuesday - Hot dog night at the pool, carrot sticks, local cantaloupe and pretzel sticks.

Wednesday - Veggie Fettuccine with Tomatoes, fruit

Veggie Fettuccine with Tomatoes (from July August 2012 Weight Watchers Magazine)

With swivel-blade peeler, peel 2 green zucchini and 2 golden zucchini lengthwise into 3/4-inch-wide strips, stopping at seeded center of each.  Discard seeded centers.  Cut 2 carrots into matchstick strips.  Transfer vegetables to colander; toss with 1/2 tsp kosher salt.  Let stand 30 minutes; drain.  Rinse vegetables, pat dry with paper towels and transfer to large bowl.  Meanwhile, mix 2 diced seeded beefsteak tomatoes, 2 Tbsp chopped fresh cilantro, 4 tsp extra-virgin olive oil, 1 minced small garlic close, 1 tsp chopped fresh oregano and 1/2 minced jalapeno pepper in bowl.  Top veggies with tomato mixture and 6 Tbsp crumbled feta cheese.

Thursday - Pizza, fruit

Friday - Organic local black bean quesadillas w/ local onions, cheddar cheese, salsa, Organic plain greek yogurt (in lieu of sour cream) and Melon Agua Fresca

Saturday - Local hamburgers, local tomato/ mozzarella/ basil salad, green beans, fruit
