Menu Plan–June 9

I am having a hard time comprehending the date of June 9th – it has been so cold and rainy here that I honestly still think it’s May!  Our garden is off to a slow but sure start.

Hopefully more grilling and summery eats this week will help… and less time in my office too :)  I was able to get most of my things moved into my new office space last week, so I feel more like summer can officially begin now. 

Last week, our menu highlight went to Wild Rice Stuffed Peppers

This recipe went together so easily and the leftovers were wonderful too. I can’t wait to share this recipe with you – it’s coming this week! 

Our best dessert highlight was Blueberry Rhubarb Crisp topped with our favorite homemade ice cream

This week, we’re planning to enjoy:

Apple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal, fresh berries
Lunch with my family celebrating my grandparent’s 65th Wedding Anniversary! 
BBQ Dinner with our neighbors; bringing roasted veggie salad {new}

Whole Wheat Waffles, Raspberry Rhubarb Sauce
Crockpot Sloppy Joe’s, Whole Wheat Buns with leftover salad

Egg Scramble Melt
Grilling – Turkey Burgers, Sweet Potato Fries, Kale Chips

Leftovers with fresh fruit
Vegetable Stir Fry with Brown Rice
Raspberry Rhubarb Frozen Yogurt

Granola & Blueberries
Smokehouse Maple Chicken Fajitas on the Grill, pineapple

Oat Cakes {new} with sautéed banana and Raspberry Rhubarb Sauce
Lasagna-Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms {new}, Copy-Cat Olive Garden Bread Sticks

Rhubarb Breakfast Bars
Grilled Vegetable Mac & Cheese

In case you missed it, our new recipes this week included:

Banana Rhubarb Bread – A fun twist on your traditional banana bread. 

Chicken Parmesan Burgers – These are incredible and have two veggies embedded in the burger (you’d never know, except they’re green).  Yum. 

Rhubarb Raspberry Shortcake – This is what you get when your husband is allergic to strawberries.  It uses my favorite Greek Yogurt Pound Cake

Ingredient Spotlight – Asparagus!   In case you’re in need of creative ways to use asparagus, check out the spotlight this week
