Every Monday my Facebook friend Meal Planning Maven invites people to share their meal plans for the week on her page. I've been participating in this conversation for a long time both because I love her page and the recipes she shares and because I find great inspiration from the other folks who post there. This post was written with that conversation in mind. I hope you'll share your plans and recipes on her page too.
Here's what I've planned for supper this week:
Monday, July 11 - Yesterday I made palak paratha (an Indian flatbread) using plantain instead of spinach. I have some left over so tonight I'm going to use one to make a wee pizza with diced fresh tomato, finely diced red onion, diced zucchini, and shredded mozzarella and edam cheese as my toppings.
The recipe I used for the palak paratha came from Veg Recipes of India. You can find it here.
Tuesday, July 12 - Breaded, oven roasted chicken thighs, new potatoes boiled with a little fresh mint (both the potatoes and the mint were a gift from my friend Donna's garden), steamed carrots and sugar snap peas.
Wednesday, July 13 - A slice of cheddar, broccoli, and tomato quiche (from the freezer), brown rice cooked in vegetable stock, and a salad of romaine, chickweed, cooked sugar snap peas (leftover from Tuesday), diced pickled beet, and calendula petals, dressed with blushing beet salad dressing.
Thursday, July 14 - A chicken, rice, and vegetable salad. Look for the recipe later this week.
Friday, July 15 - A portabella burger, and some carrot sticks, celery, and sliced cucumber.
