Family Meal Plan: Week of August 25

August 25, 2013

Hello, friends!


What a busy weekend! We just wrapped up cooking for week three of our Portland project, and we are worn out. We were blessed this week to get to share the meal with sweet friends and their little baby boy. Every weekend we do this, we realize how much effort goes into a chef-prepared restaurant meal. It’s always delicious, and always a huge effort. The end result is absolutely worth it, though.

Flank Steak and Blue Cheese Salad

Chocolate Cookie Batter

We didn’t need to go to the farmer’s market this weekend, so we’re just working from the contents of our CSA and leftovers/freezer items for this week’s meal plan. I’m excited about Wednesday — it’s my birthday, and we’re going out to eat with my twin sister Lea. Somewhere delicious and amazing, I’m sure. Can’t wait. 🙂

Here’s what we have planned for this week:

Sunday, August 25 – The Portland Project
Flank Steak and Bleu Cheese Salad
Stuffed Peppers
Chocolate and Cream Cookies

Monday, August 26 – Fish Tacos with Aïoli (from The Art of Simple Food, page 57) with chips & guacamole

Tuesday, August 27 – Stuffed bell peppers

Wednesday, August 28 – Birthday dinner!

Thursday, August 29 – Curry

Friday, August 30 – Something that involves eggplant and other random summer squash

Saturday, August 31 – Short Ribs

Mackenzie’s class recently made the change to a peanut-free classroom, so packing her lunches has gotten a bit more interesting. Some combination of the following will be in her lunchbox this week:

Homemade biscuits and jam

Cheese – colby, mozzarella, or blue cheese
Mac and cheese
Quesadillas or tacos (if she likes them)

Homemade cookies
Fruit snacks

What’s on your menu this week?
