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
Friday – Southwestern 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.

I want to try the SW cobb salad from Cooking Light, that sounds so yummy!
It’s a great time of year for a big salad with so much tasty produce. Thanks for stopping by!
Broccoli Cheddar soup sounds like something I would definitely enjoy!
You can make this same recipe with cauliflower too!
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/zucchini-recipe-round-up.com
Will do! Thanks much.
