Menu Plan Monday 10-19-09
We had such a great weekend. Some friends from out of town visited and we enjoyed their company and the sun was out so we enjoyed the outdoors for the first time in weeks!
Here is our menu for this week. The items in bold are from a local source, either our garden or a local farmer.
Breakfast with repeats (we usually have a fruit or veggie with breakfast)
Baked Oatmeal (I made some yesterday while our guests were here and we have lots left over - used local pecans)
Eggs and ham
Cheese and spinach omelet
Homemade Greek Style Yogurt with maple syrup
Lunch (with a fruit or veggie)
Grilled Cheese sandwiches
Chicken Noodle Soup
Broccoli Cheese Soup
Berry Smoothies (this past week, I added some lemon juice from our lemon tree to the smoothies and it added such a nice brightness to it. I'm going to try to find a local source of lemons for using when our tree runs out of lemons.)
Banana Nut Bread (local pecans)
Carrots and cucumbers with cheese spread
Hummus and Pita
Chips and salsa (we are down to only 3 jars of the salsa we made this summer)
Chicken Noodle Soup, Green Salad (we are starting to use some of our salad greens from our garden, though we still don't have a lot, so it is a supplement to what we buy at the grocery store) with feta and kalamata olives (my current salad addiction).
Mexican Lassagna (recipe from 30 Day Gourmet website for members only, otherwise I'd post a link), sauteed squash, cut up fruit
Roasted Chicken, Smothered Cabbage, carrots
Meatloaf (combination of ground turkey and ground lamb), green salad, purple hull peas (from my Dad's garden).
We've also got some leftovers in the freezer that we need to use up (lassagna and chicken quesadilla filling), so we will have those on the remaining days of this week with an added veggie or two.
