Last week, my in-laws cleaned out all the ripe goodies from their garden and dropped them off at our house as they headed out of town. So, this week I have an abundance of fresh vegetables to use. You’ll find zucchini, tomatoes, green peppers, and jalapeño peppers in our menu this week. No eggplant, but if you’re looking for recipes with eggplant be sure to check out the Book of Yum. This week Sea is hosting the Gluten-Free Menu Swap with eggplant as the theme ingredient.
Monday – Fajitas
I’ll be cutting up onions along with those peppers my mother-in-law brought me to make some fajitas. I’ll marinate some steak strips and serve with corn tortillas and Cilantro Rice.
Tuesday – Chicken Vindaloo
Cooking up some boneless chicken thighs with a vindaloo sauce. May need to serve hot dogs or leftovers to the kids.
Wednesday – Quinoa with Tomatoes and Zucchini
Still working on using up some of those yummy vegetables, so I’ll cook up the zucchini and tomatoes with some quinoa.
Thursday – Spaghetti with Chicken
Making a different version of my chicken spaghetti. I’ll use a thin, brothy sauce with spinach, kalamata olives and feta cheese.
Friday – Garlic Shrimp
Simple supper of shrimp sautéed with butter and garlic and served over leftover quinoa with tomatoes and zucchini.
Saturday – Grilled Steaks
Grilling steaks and serving with corn-on-the-cob and baked potatoes.
