Menu Plan–August 5

Really, August?!  You’re here already?  I must admit, I’m ready for fall – foods, flavors and weather; but, really – where did the summer go?  Next week I start back to teaching doing professional development for new faculty… so, I guess that means I have one true week left of summer.  I hope my garden thinks it’s summer long beyond next week. 

Last week we had a garage sale & finished some renovations in our master bathroom.  It was a great time had by all – and we were thankful for a little extra cash made too.  During our busy week, we relied heavily on our crockpot & enjoyed:

Upcoming this week, we’re eating from the garden – lots of zucchini-based recipes, fresh pickles using our cucumbers (both dill & sweet), spaghetti sauce, green & wax beans and eggplant! 

Apple Pie Baked Oatmeal, blueberries
BBQ Pulled Pork Wraps, mixed veggies
Sloppy Joes, Whole Wheat Buns, Green Beans, Zucchini Sauté
Cinnamon Zucchini Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

Stanley Scramble
Sweet Potato & Black Bean Wrap {new}, green beans
Ratatouille {using our garden eggplant & zucchini!}, Brown Rice

Tuesday {Baking & Cooking Day with my friend!}
Leftover Raspberry Pancakes with Apple Maple Sausages {freezer}
Broccoli, Black Beans & Rice
Crockpot Garden Spaghetti Sauce, Whole Wheat Pasta, Olive Garden Bread Sticks

Wheat Buttermilk Blueberry Pancakes
Tuscan Lemon Chicken, Red Potatoes {new}, Green Beans
