Weekly Meal Plan {Week 44}

2016 Calendar

Today is the first Monday of summer vacation for us!  Follow along on the blog as the kids and I enjoy our 69 days of summer!  Menu planning has gotten a little more challenging since we have our weekly CSA pick up on Tuesday.  I am trying to use everything, but I don’t know what I get until pick-up.  Here is a look at what was on our menu this past week:

Saturday: My husband had a fundraising dinner to attend, so the kids and I went to Moe’s and then watched Zootopia.  Mom was not cooking tonight!

Sunday: We celebrated Father’s Day with my husband’s family.  He grilled some london broil which he marinated the night before.  I made sauteed spinach and a Caesar Salad and my brother-in-law brought macaroni and cheese and roasted potatoes.

Monday: I was going to wait until later in the week to have leftovers from Sunday night, but the fridge was packed and I need to make room for our Tuesday CSA pick-up.  So, leftovers it was tonight.  

Curry Turkey Naan Bread "Tacos"

Tuesday: I made Curry Turkey Naan Bread “Tacos” from Everyday with Rachael Ray, with some roasted broccoli from the CSA.  This dish was a bit  messy, but really tasty.  I omitted the red jalapeno pepper so it wasn’t too spicy for the kids.  From the pics you can also see that for toppings I only used plain Greek yogurt and tomatoes.  I did not add lettuce or toasted sliced almonds.  The meat was sweet from the mango chutney and the kids loved the naan.  I used boxed garlic naan that I found in the freezer section of the grocery store.

Thai Basil Chicken Stir-fry

Wednesday: I made Thai Basil Chicken Stir-Fry from Cooking Light, June 2015, which I served with some rice.  I added bok choy and mizuna from the CSA to the stir fry.  This stir fry had more flavor than the one that I had made last week.

Cowboy Hash

Thursday: I made Cowboy Hash from SimplyPotatoes.com.  I adapted the recipe quite a bit….and not for the better.  I used regular Simply Potatoes diced potatoes and sauteed my own onions.  I didn’t add the can of diced chilies and used fresh garlic instead of garlic powder.  Instead of spinach, I used escarole from the CSA.  This dish lacked flavor and we added hot sauce to pep it up a bit.


Roasted Beet and Goat Cheese Pizza

Friday:  I used the leftover ground turkey meat from the Curry Turkey tacos from Tuesday on one pizza, and added caramelized onions and mozzarella cheese.  I roasted the beets from our CSA which I added to the other pizza and added the rest of the caramelized onions and some goat cheese crumbles.  Both pizzas were delicious!

  1. I love that you eat a ton of veggies. Especially in the summer, I crave them. I had never heard of mizuna, I had to look it up. I like arugula with it’s spiced/peppery flavor, is it similar? Everything looks so good, your kids eat well, no chicken nuggets in the menu! LOL The pizza looks especially delish. I love beets and goat cheese, we eat them together in salads, I never thought about using them as a pizza topper! We have our own garden, so I don’t do a CSA but love the variety you are getting!
