Menu Planning Monday - June 21

After celebrating my niece’s 3rd birthday and Father’s Day with both my dad and husband over the weekend, it’s time to keep it simple this week with easy and healthy dishes. Here’s what’s on the menu:

Monday – Homemade Minestrone Soup topped with Pesto and a side of Grilled Cheese Dippers

Tuesday – Caprese Salad (Fresh Mozarella, Tomato, and Basil) and Mixed Greens Salad with Homemade Vinaigrette, Strawberries

Wednesday – Vegetable Stir Fry with Tofu and Brown Rice

Thursday – Pesto Pasta Bake with Skillet Broccoli

Friday – Homemade Whole Wheat Pizza (Make Your Own Style with a Veggie Topping Bar)

Saturday – Black Bean and Spinach Quesadillas with Salsa Dipper

Sunday – Visiting with Grandparents (take fresh fruit like watermelon or triple berry salad)

I never had a chance to make homemade granola last week, so I'm going to try to squeeze it in this week!  Here's the recipe link and info from last week:

I’m going to try a new recipe to make homemade granola for breakfast. I’ve never tried to make my own granola before, but this recipe sounds really tasty:
Earthbound Farm’s Famous Maple Almond Granola from Food to Live By: The Earthbound Farm Organic Cookbook by Myra Goodman.
