This Week’s Meal Plan: 7/11/2011

I guess I wasn’t really thinking about my plans for the week when I made up my menu last week.  Instead I was focusing on all the CSA veggies that were in my fridge.  So, the menu changed due to our rummage sale over the weekend.  I don’t think I’ve ever done a rummage sale as extensive as this one - it was a lot of work.  Hot, tired and burnt by the end of the first day I couldn’t do a whole lot of meal prep.  We went for hot dogs and brats on the grill that night with a cabbage salad (finding out that curly cabbage is a bit too thick for this sort of application) and a “Lazy Cabbage Roll” crockpot meal (finding a more suitable use for the curly cabbage) for the next night.  This week will have some repeats from last week’s menu since we did not get to it last week.  Later in the week the kids and I will head down to my parents' house for a visit while extended family is in town – so Ryan will be on his own for meals as he pounds out his Master's thesis.

Italicized items below are already in my pantry, fridge or freezer.
