It's Back to School Week! All three of my boys start back on Tuesday. It's going to be a busy week with school Open Houses and getting back into a school schedule routine. Here's what we're having for dinner this week. What's on your plan?
Monday: Grilled Italian Sausage, Peppers & Onions
This meal didn't happen last week. A friend offered to watch our boys for a date night. Of course we said “Yes, please!”
Tuesday: BLT's, Cucumbers & Pretzel
It's the first day of school!! Tomatoes from our garden are starting to over take my kitchen counter. BLT's (minus the T or L for some) are a favorite of ours. There's nothing like a BLT with a homegrown tomato. Do you like your bread toasted or not for BLT's?
Chicken or beef? Not sure which we will have this week. I know I will be adding some black beans though.
Thursday: Cilantro Lime Chicken with Tomato & Avocado Salad
Do you have any tips for keeping fresh Cilantro fresh? I have some in the fridge and I know won't last long if I don't use it soon. This is a very easy & fresh Summer time (or anytime) meal.
Friday: Hamburgers, Homemade French Fries & Corn on the Cob
Grilling out again this week! I've made homemade french fries for friends lately. Both raved about them. If you haven't tried them yourself all I do is: cut potatoes into thin wedges, toss with olive oil, salt, pepper & paprika. They bake at 450 for about 1/2 hour. Bake them a little longer if you like them extra crispy like I do!
Saturday: Pesto Pasta with Veggies & Homemade Bread
I love having pesto “cubes” in the freezer. Tossed with hot pasta & veggies it makes an easy flavorful dinner. It's been awhile since I've made bread. We'll see how hot it is on Saturday to see if I turn on the oven or skip it.
Sunday: Homemade Pizza
We're celebrating Dylan's Birthday with family Sunday afternoon. I'm planning on pizza for dinner. I can make 2 for just us or more if family sticks around for dinner.
If you menu plan,do you do it on a weekly or monthly basis?
