Menu Plan Monday 7/6/09/

This week should be a restful week for us; an unusual thing this summer. With the exception of our regular weekly obligations, I don't think we have anything planned - yay! This week's menu is a little more involved than usual - trying some new things - plus I'd like to make more room in the freezer, so we will use lots of the frozen proteins stored there. Plus, we are going to try some cooking experiments such as making fruit leather in our oven (we have no dehydrator). Local items are highlighted.

Breakfasts (with some repeats):
Eggs and Bacon
French toast (eggs)
Waffles (eggs) with yogurt and cherries
Fruit smoothie (blueberries)

Lunch (always includes at least one fruit and veggie):
Turkey sandwiches (trying this homemade sandwich bread recipe)
Caesar salads
Chicken Salad Sandwiches

Fruit leather
Blueberry muffins
granola bars (from the freezer)
cucumbers and carrots dipped in ranch dip
herb cheese spread on crackers
homemade bread with honey butter
banana nut bread

*Baked Salmon, green salad (tomatoes, cucumbers), homemade bread
*Creamy Crockpot Italian Chicken with homemade Pesto over pasta, green salad (tomatoes, cucumbers), broccoli
*Teriyaki chicken with mixed veggies (squash) over noodles
*Steak and Chicken Fajitas, chips and salsa (going to try my hand at making this from ingredients found at the farmer's market)
*Grassfed beef burgers, broccoli, rosemary potatoes (I grew the rosemary, my Dad grew the potatoes)
*Roasted Chicken, peas (Dad grew these, too), green salad (tomatoes, cucumbers)
*Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup (squash), homemade bread
