Menu Plan for Monday August 2

I finally got organized and picked up a Produce Basket from my local farm, and it made menu planning so much easier. I got a gorgeous assortment of lettuce, like red leaf, green leaf, and romaine, so Big Salad night it is!

The lady who puts together the basket (Hi Bev!) also knows that our family likes (or at least will try) any veggies, so she also threw in some okra, yellow tomatoes, and orange cubanelle peppers. Fun things to introduce to a semi-picky 2-year old!

We are also still working our way through the new healthy recipes we picked out two weeks ago.

Big Salad w/ Avocado & Garbanzos, Foccacia

Salmon Cakes with Dill Sauce, Sweet Potatoes, Broccoli

Teriyaki Beef Noodles, (New!) Sugar Snap Peas & Carrots

Black Beans and Yellow Rice (New), Okra & Tomatoes
(I am trying a new twist on my husband's favorite Black Beans from a local restaurant) 

 (Making double for family that just had a baby :)

Saturday: Lunch Out, Dinner is usually Clean Out The Frig

I made a batch of Pioneer Woman's Ranch Dressing,
and it has been great over all the lettuce we received.
