Menu Plan 10/28-11/3

I told you yesterday about my produce basket I ordered last week and picked up on Saturday from Bountiful Baskets.

I am trying to incorporate all of this stuff into my menu for the week while still using up some freezer meals  (I think I will resume cooking next week while my mom is visiting).

Here is what I have for the week:

Sunday:   We planned to eat at a local church's fall festival, but the food was overpriced so we grabbed Wendy's on the way home.

Monday:  Burgers from the freezer with yellow squash/zucchini "fries"

Tuesday:  We plan on catching a cheap movie this night (Brave is playing at the discount theater) and maybe hitting Denny's afterwards (kids eat free!)

Wednesday:  Lasagna from the freezer with roasted Brussels sprouts

Thursday:  Lasagna again with salad  (using up the lettuce, some broccoli and cucumbers, plus some tomato and carrots i still had on hand)

Friday:  Pulling some soup out the freezer.

Saturday:  Chicken Taco Quiche with garlic parmesan roasted cauliflower  (another pinterest inspiration.)

I know that this plan doesn't seem to use up everything, but after packing lunches and having some healthy snacks during the week, I think it should just about all get used up.  If not, I can always just chop and freeze!

I will also be picking up another basket of produce on Saturday morning, and my mom is coming on Sunday, and she is not a big fan of veggies, so next week will be interesting!  I'm excited to see what we get!

Menu planning around a CSA or co-op basket is always interesting. Good luck in your culinary adventure!

I also work with a Co Op and love being able to plan our menu around such great items!

Thanks ladies. I think it will definitely be an adventure, and I sure hope I'm up to the challenge!

I'm visiting from Organized Junkie’s Menu Plan Monday today.
We have Bountiful Co-op in Las Vegas too. I still need to check it out.
Looks like there’s going to be some amazing meals this week. Everything looks delicious.
Happy Halloween!
