Meal Planning Monday
Lunch: ham and cheese wraps, cherry tomatoes, baby carrots
Snack: fresh pineapple, vanilla yogurt
Supper: Italian sausage, potatoes, baby carrots, all done on the grill (yay for barbecuing baskets!)
Lunch: spaghetti and meat sauce, cucumbers, carrots
Snack: microwave popcorn, chocolate milk
Supper: Maple Salmon (recipe from Allrecipes.com), Parmesan-Roasted Broccoli (a Barefoot Contessa recipe), whole wheat rotini
Lunch: grilled cheese sandwiches, spinach salad with berries and feta
Snack: strawberry-banana smoothies
Supper: honey garlic chicken thighs on the grill, Zucchini and Carrot “Fries” (recipe from Voracious Vander), quinoa
Lunch: hot dogs, cucumbers, steamed broccoli
Snack: apple slices, cherry yogurt
Supper: grilled pizza (recipe from Sunset, probably one margherita and one with leftover honey garlic chicken), spinach salad
Note: we tried the pizza crust from the Sunset recipe last week and it was SO GOOD. Put half in the freezer for this week. However, in the future, I will divide the full recipe into thirds and freeze two portions, as each third portion of the recipe will make two decent-sized pizzas.
Lunch: cheese and grilled chicken quesadillas, celery, baby carrots
Snack: mini bagels with cream cheese and fruit (green grapes, pineapple, strawberries, blackberries, and blueberries – note the Olympic colours in honour of the opening ceremonies Friday). Idea from tipjunkie.com.
I really tried to keep my meals simple this week, and I’ve been doing a lot on the grill. That’s what summer’s all about, right?
