Menu Plan Monday – June 18

My Men and Little Lady

I hope everyone had a wonderful Father’s Day. We started the morning with a big breakfast that my son and I made for my husband – fresh blueberry pancakes, eggs, sausage and grits. We kept our portions small though so we weren’t overly stuffed. My sister orchestrated a surprise birthday party for her husband where we spent a fun afternoon with family and friends at their house. We then had a quiet evening at home. I got Chinese food for my husband and son from our favorite local Chinese restaurant since he is deprived of good Chinese food because I can’t eat soy right now. I had leftovers, which was fine by me.

Our blueberry bushes are overflowing with berries, which is wonderful. We’ve actually had so many that we are freezing some for the months ahead. I’m still waiting for more figs to ripen and my first cucumber is almost ready. A deer has gotten into my garden though and taken care of my okra, jalapeno plant and several of the tomato plants. This is the first year that has happened and I am not happy about it!

Sweet Potato Burger

From this past week’s menu, the Sweet Potato Veggie Burgers were wonderful. I did add some quinoa to the mix to give it a little more texture, which helped them not fall apart completely. Everyone loved them. The Crock Pot Santa Fe Chicken turned out well and even made great leftovers the next night as a burrito stuffing.  The Hamburger Buddy was also a big hit and subbing almond milk for the sour cream worked out really well.

Here is this week’s menu:

Monday: Huevos Rancheros with Watermelon Salad

Tuesday: Pollo in Potacchio over Spaghetti with Steamed Broccoli

Wednesday: Carne Guisada over Brown Rice

Thursday: Leftovers

Friday: Broiled Tilapia with Garlic, Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Green Beans

Saturday: Evening Out

Sunday: Simple Supper
