Menu Monday: 7/2/12

We’re about 4 weeks into our summer at the Lackey house, and things have been a bit crazy the last week or so.  I’ve had some loose menu plans in the works, but definitely need to get back to a better planning schedule.  My summer days seem to either drag by painfully slowly, or pass me by at break-neck speed.  In either case, having a plan for meals saves me time, money, and my sanity.

Monday:  Halibut with cilantro sauce and pico de gallo and salad

Tuesday:  Fireworks with family….probably eating out

Wednesday:  Paleo Gumbo with cauli-rice and steamed broccoli

Thursday:  Meatballs with Zughetti and Tomato Sauce (the meatballs will be a version of this recipe, the zughetti is julienned zucchini sautéed in a bit of olive oil)

Friday:  Balsamic Pork Chops with cauli-rice roasted brussels sprouts

Saturday:  Favorite Chicken, bacon-wrapped sweet potato fries, salad

I’m starting to plan a bit more for our lunches lately.  The kids are usually happy with a sandwich or yogurt and fruit, but we’re all starting to get bored with that, so this weekend I’m grilling some extra chicken to have on hand to add to salads or drizzle with balsamic dressing.  I’ll also have some left-over bacon-wrapped chicken thighs for my girls….they love these left over, cold, straight from the fridge. Sounds icky, but they’re actually pretty yummy and way better than PB&J.  I also have lots of raw broccoli florets and baby carrots for the kids to munch on in an effort to up our veggie quota each day.
