Weekly Menu (7/8/12-7/14/12)

This week in our Bountiful Basket (which we share with my awesome brother and his wife) we got:
  • green beans
  • lettuce
  • cauliflower
  • zucchini
  • tomatoes
  • bananas
  • peaches
  • plums
  • grapes
  • strawberries
  • mangoes 

I also have some watermelon, crenshaw melon, cantaloupe, cherries, onions, bell pepper, butternut squash, corn on the cob, carrots, and baby kale to supplement the basket. Also, I've frozen down some blueberries and watermelon puree for easy addition to smoothies and water kefir. Our strawberries are pretty much done producing, but our raspberries are now ripening, so we should get a few cups of those this week.

This week for breakfast: Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins, Double Chocolate Zucchini Muffins, fresh fruit, and cereal for the kids, and smoothies, water kefir with watermelon puree ice cubes (my favorite), or fresh fruit for me.

This week for lunches: The boys are taken care of at their sitters'. I'll be eating leftovers, and of course, I bring fruit with my everyday.

This week for dinner:






  • Pizza (I'll be putting whatever veggies we have left on mine...the rest of the family prefers pepperoni)
  • Fruit Salad
  • Green Salad
Saturday: We'll be at Lagoon for my husband's work party.  They provide a dinner of hamburgers, hot dogs, etc. We'll bring our own buns and eat only what looks safe. And bring snacks as well, just not sure what I'll bring yet.


  1. I'm interested in the kind of smoothies you make for yourself, do you mind posting a recipe of something you occasionally make?

    1. I usually use whatever fruits I have, this week it's cherries, raspberries, bananas, mangoes, peaches, etc., then add some liquid of some sort (I've been culturing my own water kefir, so I use that a lot or So Delicious Coconut milk, or fruit juice) and blend. I don't do anything fancy really. I do have some recipes of my favorite smoothies on my recipe page under beverages. (
