Weekly Meal Plan {Week 48}

2016 Calendar

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.

Slow Cooker Spare Ribs

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.

Stir Fried Steak

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.

Stuffed Zucchini

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.

Ricotta Zucchini Pizza

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!

Zucchini Tian

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!



  1. These all look so good. I didn’t join a CSA this year because the BF has a pretty big garden that has been doing well. We are swimming in zucchini. I don’t know WHY we didn’t think to stuff them. Hopefully we’ll get a few more before the season is over so I can try it out.
