Whew! We made it through swim team season. I had two naps yesterday and am looking forward to a week of summer fun with the kids. There's still plenty of time to enjoy garden-fresh veggies and grilling before we switch to Back-to-School mode. Green peppers are in abundance right now, so I've been including them in as many meals as I can. With more time to cook this week, I took some requests from the kids and ended up with this meal plan for the week:
Sunday–We BBQ'd steaks and garden vegetables with our neighbors. I picked up some Caesar salad kits with a coupon and we had a lovely meal!
Meatless Monday—Macaroni & Cheese with broccoli (I'll use GF pasta), salad
Tuesday–Chicken, quinoa and green beans
Wednesday–Portabello Fajitas, black beans, rice
Thursday–Turkey Parmesan Penne (using GF pasta), salad
Friday–We have company in town, so I'm keeping things simple with BBQ Chicken Sandwiches in the slow cooker, raw veggies (carrots, celery, green peppers, etc.), and potato chips.
Saturday–I'm using my free Papa John's Pizza from this deal, and I'll just have some GF leftovers from the week.
