Weekly Meal Plan {Week 47}

2016 Calendar

Happy first day of August!   Summer is flying by!  Our weekly CSA is keeping us loaded up with fresh veggies which I am trying very hard to use!  Here is what was on our menu plan this past week.

Saturday: We spent the day with friends at their lake and then had dinner at their house.

Turkish Chicken

Sunday:  We hosted our monthly supper club.  This month’s theme was Turkish.   We made grilled chicken which we served over rice pilaf, eggs cooked in a pepper and onion dish as well as a grilled eggplant dish with spicy chickpeas and walnut sauce.

Grilled Aubergine with Spicy Chickpeas

Monday: We had lots of leftovers from Supper Club so we had them for dinner.  They were just as good the second day, and I got a night off from cooking….score! 

Tortellini with Creamy Pesto Sauce

Tuesday: I made Tortellini with Creamy Pesto Sauce using The Pioneer Woman’s recipe.  I was able to use the basil that I’ve been growing on the deck for the pesto sauce.  Yum!  I knew the kids wouldn’t like the pesto sauce, so I didn’t pour it over all the tortellini.  Instead the kids had butter and parmesan cheese on their tortellini.

Roasted Vegetable Wrap

Wednesday:  I made Roasted Veggie & Goat Cheese Wraps adapted from Vanilla Bean Café.  I used a variety of vegetables from our CSA which I roasted.  I put them on wheat flatbreads but didn’t actually like the flatbread very much.  I served the wraps with corn on the cob, mini tater tots and onion rings. 

Teriyaki Burger

Thursday:  I made Teriyaki Burgers with Grilled Pineapple and Onions from Recipe Runner.  I used ground beef instead of ground turkey.  I also didn’t make the avocado cream sauce and instead used guacamole.  This recipe involved a bit of effort, making the homemade teriyaki sauce, cooking the burgers, and then cooking the pineapple and onions.  However, they were super tasty!  I served these with sautéed Swiss Chard and Breaded Squash Sticks.

Teriyaki Pizza

Friday:  We used the leftover teriyaki sauce to make a Teriyaki Pizza.  We used the leftover roasted vegetables and goat cheese to make another pizza.  Both were pretty good and a great way to use up leftovers!
