Monday means another meal plan! This week it was quiet around here, as my daughter was away with a friend of hers. She didn’t come home until Saturday, so it was just three of us for dinner this week. Most of our dinners this week don’t have a linked “recipe.” I ended up winging most of the dinners based on what I had on hand. I’m proud of myself for actually getting dinner on the table this week. It was SO hot in New York this week and honestly, most nights I didn’t really want to cook. However, we had lots of CSA veggies that had to be used, so dinner got made!
Monday – I made tacos with Mexican rice and roasted broccoli. Any kind of taco is a hit around here. I had picked up some large taco shells at a big discount from Acme and we filled them with ground beef, tomatoes, cheese, salsa and sour cream.
Tuesday – I made Slow Cooker Spare Ribs, roasted potatoes from the CSA, chopped salad mix and tomatoes from the CSA with basil and balsamic. The ribs ended up a little drier than I liked but we dipped them in BBQ sauce.
Wednesday – I made a steak stir fry with rice, sautéed Swiss Chard. I threw some onions and eggplant and peppers from the CSA into the stir fry. I made a sauce using soy sauce, brown sugar, honey and teriyaki sauce and thickened it a little with cornstarch mixed with water.
Thursday – I made Stuffed Zucchini from Taste of Home. I’ve made stuffed zucchini before, usually with sausage. This recipe reminded me of a meatball stuffed inside a squash. It was tasty and my son ate a small zucchini.
Friday – My husband came home from work early and helped make homemade pizza. We made one cheese and one with ricotta cheese, sautéed zucchini and red onion. Yum!
Saturday – We had our monthly Supper Club Saturday night. This month’s theme was Julia Child. I made a Zucchini Tian and my husband made her Chocolate Almond Cake. It was a delicious meal as usual!
