Monday Meals – August 24th, 2015

monday-meals

Last week was rough. We didn’t end up getting to the store and didn’t end up making a dinner plan so we were all over the place and ate out a lot. So Sunday I went to the farmer’s market early in the day and then to the grocery store so I could make a delicious soup for dinner and so we could have leftovers for lunches this week and I found amazing things at the farmer’s market which helps me figure out what I’ll be making next week too.

SundayCreamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup (made in the crockpot and super easy!)
Monday – Chicken breasts with Roasted Asparagus and Potatoes (from my mom’s garden)
Tuesday – Leftovers
Wednesday – Brats with Pickled Red Onions and Pasta Salad
Thursday – Leftovers
FridayHomemade Mac & Cheese with Meatballs
Saturday – Anniversary Dinner at our favorite restaurant (which means I’ll get a big, fat, juicy steak with lots of mushrooms and sides. I can’t wait!)
Sunday – Leftovers or BW3’s – Kevin has his fantasy football draft so maybe I’ll have him bring me some buffalitos instead of leftovers? Who knows!

Sunday night I not only made the soup, but I made some pickled red onions too. I will be letting my peaches get a bit riper and then I’m going to try peach jam using the same sugar free recipe I used with my strawberries (recipe here)…YUM! I’ll also be making some homemade spaghetti sauce to can for the first time! The farmer’s market had amazing tomatoes, carrots, green peppers and I bought a giant bunch of basil to use!
