Weekly Menus: Week of 7/17/2011

This Sunday, I have been met with a vegetable drive-by. If you don’t know anyone with a garden, let me show you what it looks like.

So I’ll be producing a full-out Sunday dinner later, and sharing as well (looking at you Complicated Veggie). It’s great to be back in the kitchen, even if I still feel hungry for dinner at 10 pm EST, courtesy of my jet lag.

Weekly Menus this week:

Four-Square Grocery List (which I’ve already shopped for, efficient!):

CSA from Brinkley Farms:

1 lb tomatillos $3.00
2 lbs regular eggplant $3.00
2 pablano peppers $1.00
1 red seedless watermelons $5.00

Which means:

Sunday: Sunday Dinner
Still pondering the main, but the go-withs include black-eyed peas, cukes and onions, sliced tomatoes, corn on the cob, squash in some format, fried okra, possibly potatoes. The table may beg for mercy, and I may send out invites.

Monday: Fish and Veg
Salmon Cakes and more okra.

Tuesday: Mexican
May switch this with Thursday so I can make another Mexican Squash Casserole. Otherwise, burritos.

Wednesday: Sammies
With cukes on the side, probably tomato sandwiches.

Thursday: Pasta Bake
Great way to lower the veg count.

Friday: Steak and Potatoes or Casserole
This may also be a leftover day, we shall see.

Saturday: Dine out!
I’m feeling either the picnic platter at Crook’s Corner, or a Food Truck Rodeo.

    Ooooooh. I’d like some of that okra. I’d like some of that Sunday dinner, too . . . Love, Complicated Vegetarian and CVs Jr.

      Done! You can film the extravaganza that will be Vegetarian Sunday Dinner. Adding cornbread and pickled beets to the line-up, possibly with butterbeans in addition to the black-eyed peas.

      I’ll keep my jar of bacon fat to myself this week. 🙂
