We have finally stopped traveling and settled down into structured days that include a slower pace, time to breath and watch summer thunderstorms and visit farmers markets. There are a little more veggies, a little less sugar, and more time to sit at the table for dinner (my favorite). I know not every season gives us this luxury now, so we’re savoring away. And if these meals look like I am on a health kick its because I am! A month of ‘being on vacation’ provides a lot of motivation for one of those kicks, am I right??
Housekeeping note: I’m posting these meal plans after I make them and shop for them, usually mid-week. My thought is people can look back on them when they are doing their meal planning over the weekend. If there would be a better time to have a new one at your finger tips, feel free to let me know in the comments. 🙂
Maple Mustard Salmon with Lemony Couscous & Steamed Zucchini
Pesto Chicken Kebabs – these look so delicious and are a great way to use up all the basil thats exploding! I’ll add red onions and summer squash to mine.
(Side Note: Please check out this blog Flavor the Moments appetizer index – I want to make everything!)
Cayenne-Rubbed Chicken Breasts with Avocado Salsa
Pizza or Pool – this Fig, Carmelized Onion and Blue Cheese Pizza looks amazing if we are up for homemade (I usually go meatless on Fridays so I would leave off the bacon).
One day I will post my husband’s award-winning steak! (The awards given by friends and family.) Until then, this steak recipe looks so good – I might just have a bloody mary with my husband’s steak. And how good do these Cauliflower Steaks look for the side dish?
Eggplant Parmeasan with Fresh Mozzarella
I love this dish so much when eggplants are in season, but doing it in the halved eggplants? Beautiful and Genius.
