Family Dinner Plan: Summer bounty

 

Our weekly CSA boxes from Fifth Crow Farms have been filled with gorgeous produce! This week we found lettuces, cabbage, rainbow chard, yellow beets, spinach, zucchini squash, parsley, basil with roots and two baskets of strawberries. In addition, I signed up to receive a chicken from Root Down Farm, which we grilled the day it arrived. 


 
With host weather expected this week, here is my meal plan for the week of June 28:

Sunday: Grilled steaks, sautéed Padron peppers, fresh corn, green salad with avocado

Monday: Kids cook! Chicken and rice, no veggie in sight!

Tuesday: Cold Zucchini (and spinach) and Mint Soup, Noodles with peanut sauce, beets with goat cheese, apricot clafoutis 

Wednesday: Leftovers or milkshakes, depends on how hot it is!

Thursday: Roasted salmon, pesto with fresh pasta, steamed beet greens, green salad

Friday: Out to dinner

Saturday: BBQ ribs, baked beans, coleslaw, watermelon – traditional July 4th feast

What is on your menu plan this week?
