Menu Plan Monday - Week of June 24th, 2012


Yumm....I love summer salads!  I mean really love.

My mom used to make these when I was a kid and I turned my nose up so high.  I mean, really, who makes a salad and puts tuna on it? Or salmon? Or chicken? 

Then about 3 years ago when we started growing lettuce in earnest I realized the wisdom of these things: dinner goes together in about 4 minutes, we get all kinds of goodies in one dish, no pots and pans to wash and we use up leftover meat!  A win-win all the way around!

I even put tuna on one and told my husband "I'm turning into my mother."  He said, "It's okay. I like your mother!" **GRIN** 

Anyway, we are now getting produce from our CSA and it is definitely spring/early summer in the upper-Midwest garden produce department!  So salads galore here!

Here's what we're eating this week:

All of the *s mean that we're trying some new recipes this week!  The Fruit Pockets and Caramel-Almond Popcorn came from the kids' cookbook that Missy got for her birthday.  The Spicy Black Bean Burritos and Lemon-Raspberry Coffee Cake came from magazines.  The Coffee Cake is yummy and is a keeper!  We got fresh raspberries from our CSA and lemons were on sale, so it was a prefect time to try it!  I'm hoping the others are just as good!
