Menu Plan Monday – Aug 5


This week I felt I was hitting the meal-planning wall a bit.  It seems like I already just made everything!  I had to get out the loose-leaf binder jammed with recipes torn from magazines to get a little inspiration going.  The Southwestern Cobb salad came from this binder.  All meals include a side of zucchini.  Tis the season!

Monday – The Amazing Broccoli Cheddar soup (less fat) from the cookbook Super Natural Every Day: Well-Loved Recipes from My Natural Foods Kitchen.  This is my favorite soup recipe.  I think I can sneak some kale in there too.  Don’t skip the whole grain mustard in the soup – essential!

Tuesday – Swim Team Banquet.  I predict Mr. Saver will be enjoying peace, quiet, a Simpsons episode and take-out burrito in our absence.

Wednesday –  Jamie Oliver’s Fajitas with refried black beans.  This recipe is a mainstay in our home. Jamie never disappoints!

Thursday – Cookout – bratwurst, baked beans and zucchini

FridaySouthwestern Cobb Salad from Cooking Light Magazine.  In place of the turkey I will throw a chicken cutlet on the grill with Thursday night’s dinner.  This is a recipe I have made before – easy and delicious with summer veg.

This is one HUGE zucchini plant!

    That is one enormous zucchini plant…I only wish I could grow something like that. If you are looking for ideas on what to do with all that zucchini, you should check out my zucchini recipe round-up post. Perhaps it will give you inspiration. FrugalOrganicMama/
