Alternate title: “When in Doubt, Get Tomatoes”
As you may have noticed, I have not been very successful at posting menu plans this summer. I’ve been great at picking up CSA vegetables. I’ve been excellent at taking weekly photos of our share (let me know if you want to see them!). Most weeks, I’ve planned a few dishes. And then, I’ve chosen to do other things with my time, because I can finish the menu plan and write the post later…then suddenly it’s Thursday or Friday and I figure I’ll just try again next week, at which point I repeat the cycle.
It’s a good problem to have. This summer has been really good. Though I haven’t ever gotten into a daily routine, I’ve been having a great time with my family, getting some stuff done and feeling generally good about how I’ve spent my vacation. I can’t complain. We’ve even done a pretty good job of using up all the vegetables each week without a menu plan.
The Pick Up
grilled cheese and tomato sandwiches with tomato/cucumber salad
Unstuffed Bell Peppers (Budget Bytes) with caprese salad
Leftover Unstuffed Bell Peppers with green beans
Chickpea Feta Tabbouleh (Oh My Veggies) with side vegetable to be determined
Also on the agenda:
Lots of sliced tomatoes, cucumbers and/or melon for snacks
