Our Menu (Week of July 22, 2012)

Summer fruit love

Why hello there!  I took a couple of weeks off from menu plans due to vacation (yay!) and, uh, laziness.  But I missed having a menu plan last week.  Because when you’re feeling lazy?  That’s when you could really use the plan!  (I’m shouting at myself.)  It just makes meal times easy, breezy, beautiful Cover Girl!

Sorry.

So back to it!  :)  I have a lot of summer fruit and garden fresh zucchini & bell peppers I need to find ways to use up.  A pleasant pickle.  Here’s what we’re having this week.

Breakfasts

  • Blueberry pancakes, raspberries & blueberries
  • Egg scramble, raspberries, whole wheat toast strips, o.j.
  • Greek yogurt with peaches, blueberries, freshly ground flaxseed, & more (my mom made this for me during my visit–not for everyone, but super healthy and I love it!)
  • Homemade cereal/granola, pineapple-mango smoothies
  • Blueberry biscuits, Strawberry Oatmeal Smoothie
  • Savory breakfast muffins, raspberries, o.j.
  • Breakfast burritos, raspberries, o.j.

Lunches

  • Fried egg, tomato, and avocado sandwiches, watermelon
  • Corn cakes with avocado salsa, pita bread, fruit
  • Turkey tortilla roll-ups, fruit salad, lemonade
  • PB and homemade jam sandwiches, fruit salad
  • Lunch out
  • Leftovers plus fruit x 2

Dinners

Snacks & Fun Extras (aka Baked Goods ;) )

  • Delicious summer fruit including tons of watermelon
  • Crackers and string cheese
  • P.B. and celery/crackers

Freezer Cooking & DIY Session:  I don’t do a traditional once-a-month session, but generally choose 2 or 3 recipes. 

  • Skipping the freezer cooking
  • Lemon curd
  • Something to put the lemon curd on. :)

  1. Menu looks great as always Danielle! :) I just made your english muffin bread this morning. It turned out awesome!

  2. Hello, I’m stopping by from Organizing Junkie today.
    I love garden fresh produce and fruits. They just taste better.
    You have some wonderful meals planned this week.
    The humidity has arrived in Las Vegas. It has me wishing for our dry hot days.
    Enjoy your week!

    • Hi Rona! Thanks for stopping by! I agree about fresh produce and fruit. I don’t have a garden, but luckily I have the blessing of my in-law’s garden bounty :) I don’t do well with humidity–sending cool breezes and dry weather your way ;)
