Menu Planning Monday - August 2nd

We just found out that my husband will be on business travel for a month very soon. On this trip, our 1 year old son and I are going along which will be super fun! That means I need to work hard to use up what we have in the refrigerator, pantry, and garden...if my family can handle any more meals featuring zucchini. :)  So here’s what’s on the menu:

Monday – Summer Minestrone Soup with Whole Wheat Grilled Cheese Sandwich Dippers
This dinner will help use up all kinds of veggies in my refrigerator and that!

Tuesday – Ground Turkey Tacos with all the Fixings (Black Beans, Shredded Lettuce, Diced Tomatoes, Shredded Cheddar Cheese, Diced Red Onion, Diced Jalapenos, Cilantro, Salsa, Avocado, Lime Wedges).
Colorful and Tasty...definitely a kid favorite at our house!

Wednesday – Taco Loaded Potatoes, Mixed Greens Salad with Homemade Vinaigrette
Rolling leftovers into a new meal...a real time saver on a busy night!

Thursday – Pesto Pasta Bake, Parmesan Zucchini Crisps with Marinara Sauce for Dipping
Super easy to prepare and it makes enough to freeze for a second dinner to enjoy another night.

Friday – Grilled Shrimp Kabobs over Brown Rice with Veggies, Assorted Berries
Love cooking dinner on the grill.  Less dishes to clean up!

Saturday – Homemade Whole Wheat Pizza with Veggie Topping Bar, Homemade Ice Cream...Yum!

Sunday – Grilled Turkey Burgers with Toppings, Skillet Broccoli, and Sweet Potato Fries
