Weekly Menu (6/10/12-6/16/12)

This week in our Bountiful Basket (which we share with my awesome brother and his wife) we got the regular basket plus an Asain pack add-on:
  • napa cabbage 
  • bok choy
  • water chestnuts
  • snow peas
  • green onions
  • basil
  • corn on the cob (which we will eat tonight, for sure)
  • kale (which I've already made kale chips out of) :)
  • tomatoes
  • celery
  • acorn squash
  • mango
  • peaches
  • plums
  • apples
  • bananas

We also went to the farmer's market today and picked up some broccoli sprouts (I'm in love with these), rhubarb, honey, and some organic hummis (which is absolutely fantastic)

I also have bell peppers, bananas, lettuce, potatoes, baby carrots, a pineapple and oranges left from last week, and I'm picked about 1-2 cups of strawberries a day from our strawberry patch, so we will have plenty of those this week, too.

This week for breakfast: Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins, Double Chocolate Zucchini Muffins, and cereal for the kids, and Homemade Yogurt  with Udi's granola or baked oatmeal for me.

This week for lunches: The boys are taken care of at their sitters'.  I'll be eating leftovers, unless by some strange reason we have none, then I'll be making myself hummus wraps (corn tortillas, hummus, sprouts, tomatoes, peppers, and's my new favorite lunch).  And of course, I bring fruit with my everyday, so that's where the plums, apples, and bananas will go.

This week for dinner: 
  • Chili
  • Cornbread (with the fresh honey we got from the farmer's market)
  • Baked Potatoes
  • Salad 
  • Tamales
  • Nachos 
  • sliced pineapple 
  • Basmati rice and black beans

  • Black bean tacos (we just mix a can of rinsed black beans with a can of Rotel tomatoes)
  • Green Salad
  • pineapple and peaches

  • Stir Fried Veggies (napa cabbage, bok choy, water chestnuts, snow peas, carrots, celery, etc)
  • Rice or Asain rice noodles
  • Pot Stickers
  • Sliced Strawberries

  1. The menu plan for the week looks delicious, and so do the Banana Muffins. I have the same train cake pan, so I might just give it a try and see if it can entice my three year old Thomas the Train loving son into eating them (not that getting him to eat muffins is generally a problem...)
