Menu Planning for June 15, 2013

Can I just tell you how much I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE having our CSA produce basket start up again?

This year we opted for the largest size share with the assumption that we would freeze a bit of it every week so we’d have some of it in the fall.  But last week we ate everything!  Here’s a photo of the gorgeous goods we got this week:


and here’s our plan for meals  (keep in mind that often Bookworm and I will eat something different than the rest of the family because of our food intolerances).

Dairy Free & Gluten Free Menu Plan

Sunday–Slow Cooker Roasted Chicken tacos with lettuce, tomato and guacamole

Monday–Chicken, Sauteed Zucchini & Garlic Scapes, homemade french fries

TuesdayQuinoa & Kale Patties, homemade meatballs, cherry tomatoes  (Bookworm & I will have some kind of meat patty & sauteed kale)

WednesdayPasta with Asparagus & Cherry Tomatoes (minus the cheese & with GF pasta), Roasted Radishes,

Thursday–Ham & Roasted Cabbage

Friday–Chicken soup with basil pesto

Recipes I’m going to freeze with our surplus veggies:

Easy Spinach Frittata (hope this turns out after it comes out of the freezer!)

Chicken Apple Sausage & Kale Soup
