I’m kind of an impulse buyer. It’s dangerous to go to the grocery store when I’m hungry. I’ll either buy a bunch of unhealthy snack items or way overstock the fridge. As I hate wasting food and binge eating, I have to plan ahead of time and arrive at the super market well fed. =) Each Friday night or Sat morning I plan my meals for the week and make a list of exactly what I need. I, of course, plan my meals around and incorporate all the wonderful veges from my CSA box. This week I received summer squash, a huge bunch of cilantro, red potatoes, onions, spinach, walnuts, cherries, strawberries, oranges. The cherries are already gone.
Some of the blogs I read have weekly menu updates. I thought that I’d do it for a while, just for kicks. So here are my dinner plans for the week. I was trying for moderately healthy with lots of fresh veges and a total prep time of less than 30 minute for busy weeknights.
Sat: tri-tip, red potatoes, spinach
Monday-Pita pockets (hummus, carrots, cucumber, tomato, spinach)
Wednesday- Bread salad (bread, tomato, cucumber, basil, onion…), fresh fruit smoothie, and cheese
Thursday-Big Salad (chicken, walnuts, lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber, bell pepper)
Friday-Date night. I’m hoping we get Indian or perhaps Sushi! And then I’ll be making a strawberry margarita cake for a “Sies de Junio” party.
Happy Weekend Everyone!
