OUR AIR CONDITIONING IS BEING INSTALLED TOMORROW! I haven’t been this excited for a contractor visit, ever. And I don’t think I’m exaggerating. I’m also therefore committed to preparing more meals at home this week now that I don’t have the heat as an excuse.
This week I used the first strategy that I mention on 5 Ways to Start Your Weekly Meal Plan and went to our local farmer’s market for inspiration. Here’s what we picked up!
Mutsu apples, snap peas, Brussels sprouts, strawberries, and salad greens
This is pretty much going to be a daily snack, minus the whipped cream… maybe…
We also bought items for a nice no-cooking-required Sunday dinner: 4 different types of salami, snap peas, a Mutsu apple, two different types of cheeses, and a sourdough loaf of bread. We enjoyed this with a white from Featherstone Wineries from Niagara, and it was all just so perfect!
We should do a charcuterie board dinner more often.
Here is our plan for this week:
Monday: BLT’s and Berry Salad with Goat Cheese from Skinnytaste
Tuesday: Chicken sausage and Grilled Brussels Sprouts from Skinnytaste
Wednesday: Slow Cooker Chicken Curry from Gluten Free with LB
Thursday: Burgers and grilled vegetables
Friday: Homemade pizza with goat cheese, prosciutto, spinach
Saturday: Dinner out
