Menu Plan Week of June 25

As I peruse the selection of local and organic produce at the farmers market and co-op, it is safe to say we are well into the summer!  Maybe more so than normal with the very warm spring that we had!  Yum, I just want to buy a little bit of everything.  I prepared snap peas from the farmers market to go with dinner last night, dropped them in boiling water for 2 minutes, rinsed them under cold water and then gave them a quick stir fry with olive oil, salt and pepper.  They were beautiful and sweet.  If you do go to a farmers market, I challenge you to purchase one thing that you have never prepared before - rainbow chard, snap peas, a new herb, etc. and give it a shot!  It is almost impossible to ruin wonderful produce, so you can't hurt a thing by trying something new!

We will be headed on a family vacation next week, so our plan is pretty simple.  Enjoy!

Monday:  Pasta with homemade marinara (from the freezer) mixed with bulk Italian sausage and spinach; salad

Tuesday:  Baked chicken breasts with hashbrowns and green beans

Wednesday:  Winging it

Thursday:  Black Bean Sweet Potato Quesadillas with salsa (just discovered the Trader Joe's organic red tomatillo salsa - SO delicious!)

Friday - Happy Vacation!

Stay tuned for a post with some great links for 4th of July snacks and treats! :)
