My weekly meal planning has started to revolve around our veggie CSA haul, so here’s this week!
This week our CSA share included: golden beets, patty pan squash, zucchini, kale, little onions, radishes, and a lone banana pepper. We also still have a little kale left over from last week.
Weekly Menu Plan
These are in no particular order. I’ve just started having options ready and making whatever sounds best that night. We have a couple nights where we don’t need to make dinner, so I’ve only planned 5 meals this week.
We need something with leftovers, and this will do the trick. Normally I’d want to make my own cream-of-whatever soup base, but I doubt I’ll manage that this time around.
- Frittata w/ zucchini, patty pan squash, banana pepper cheese, and whatever else needs to be tossed in.
We’ve got mahi mahi and fresh mango (from our fruit share) in the fridge. Perfect.
- Grilled pork chops, orzo with kale
We have pork chops in the freezer, orzo in the cupboard and kale in the fridge, so this will use those up nicely. We’ll just grill/broil up the pork chops with some seasoning and have some orzo with kale on the side.
So that uses up everything but the beets and radishes. We’ve gotten beets for the last couple weeks, and I’ve just been roasting them and eating them in salads with goat cheese, but I need a break from that. I think I’ll pickle these up and give them to my Mom. She loves pickled beets. The radishes I just prep (cut off the tops and bottoms) and we munch on them.
What are you having for dinner this week? Anything new and interesting?
