Menu Plan Monday-Cukes!

cukesI am breaking with tradition and actually getting my menu plan up in a timely fashion. It’s amazing all of the things I decide to do when I know I’m supposed to be filing insurance claims. I’ve already cleaned the kitchen and have hazelnut meringues in the oven as I type, which are essentially using Heather’s yummy recipe...meringue

This week’s host is Esther of Lilac Kitchen, and her ingredient is cucumber. I love cukes, but they don’t love me. I am growing some, though (see above!). These are a bunch smaller than the first ones. We were having so much rain that the first few I got were HUGE–8-9 inches long and really thick, too. I’ll have to water more often if I want the big ones again!

Monday:
Curried beef with roasted cauliflower

Tuesday:
Kale and white beans with sauteed garlic
Salsa-mole

Weds:
Lemon thyme turkey cutlets breaded in quinoa flour

Thurs:

Quinoa with parsley pesto and broccoli

Friday:

Leftovers!!!

Sweet/baked treats:
Raw peach/raspberry tart
A bread recipe I’m working on
lemongrass tea
apricot slushies

From my garden:
Tomatoes
peppers
blueberries (not many)
garlic galore
herbs–thyme, rosemary, mint, parsley, basil, etc.

From the farmers’ market:
peaches
plums
nectarines
apricots
onions
peppers

About Cheryl Harris

Life played a funny trick on me. I've studied nutrition for years, and much to my surprise, found out that I could manage many of my health issues via diet. I've been GF for years, and I've got a bunch of allergies and sensitivities. But it definitely doesn't keep me from cooking, baking and enjoying my food. Thanks for stopping by.

    YUM! Great menu! Kale and white beans is a long time favorite, and I have been wanting to try again at roasted cauliflower. (I have some unsuccessful attempts in my past.)

    Now I am all freaked out about acrylimides, though, from reading the roasted cauliflower recipe…

  3. The menu looks great and has some of our favorites. This time of year is so full of good food.

    Wish I could plan my weekly meals like this. In any case, thanks for the roasted cauliflower idea.
