What I Ate Wednesday

Today was a busy day, so you get some poor quality iPhone photos.  We are heading out of town this weekend to attend the wedding of a friend from high school so there was lots to finish up and get ready before leaving tomorrow morning.

Breakfast : Coffee and yogurt

Breakfast 20130626

Lunch: Leftovers from last night’s dinner.  A random concoction of penne pasta, spinach and feta chicken sausage, onion, peppers, feta cheese and balsamic vinegar.

Snack: Watermelon that I’d grab a couple of pieces when I walked by it throughout the afternoon.

Dinner: We picked up platters from the local BBQ place, Rockland. I got a beef brisket sandwich with mac and cheese and potato salad as the sides.  Or as my sister would say “carbs and carbs and carbs!”  So delicious though.

Weekly Meal Plan

Normally I make the meal plan and we grocery shop over the weekend, but with the long weekend everything got shifted a bit.  I typically try and make a plan that incorporates the sales for that week and if I’m using only a small portion of a something, I try and make something later in the week that would use the rest of it.

We’re trying 2 new recipes this week!  Zucchini Boats we’ve had before, but summer squashes and italian sausage were on sale this week so it seemed like the perfect thing. Other things on sale included cherry tomatoes, fresh corn, frozen shrimp, red peppers and avocado.

On the menu for us

Tuesday: Grilled Salmon and Yellow Squash with Red Pepper Sauce

Wednesday: Out for sushi for a friend’s last day of her old job

Thursday: Spicy Grilled Shrimp with Quinoa Salad

Friday: Sausage Stuffed Zucchini Boats

Saturday: Spicy Black Bean Burgers and Corn

The black bean burgers are a new to me item that my sister recommended.  I figure we’ll have some leftover tomatoes and avocado to create a fresh salsa of sorts to top them with.
