Weekly Menu

I don't know about you, but I am so done with summer!  We have had a crazy heat wave for too long now.  I do not like 90+ degree weather!  I am ready for cooler temps, clouds, and nice cool breezes.  But even with the heat, you know I still made it to the farms!!  :)  We picked up some gorgeous red-leaf lettuce, basil, carrots, green beans, sweet Maui onion, cucumber, cherry tomatoes, green tomatoes, red tomatoes, and a funny little green and purple tomato.  I have no idea what that little guy is, but I thought I would try it.  If you know what that little tomato is on the bottom left corner, let me know!  :)  With this selection, I will be making the following meals this week:

  • Plate Lunch - Chicken Katsu with Hawaiian Style Mac Salad and rice
    • using the carrots

  • 4 Cheese Ravioli in Tomato Basil Cream Sauce with Caprese Salad
    • using the basil and red tomatoes

  • Sauteed Mushroom and Zucchini Finger Foods
    • using some remaining zucchini from last week

  • Fried Green Tomatoes with Ranch Dip
    • using the green tomatoes

  • For lunches, I will be enjoying some cheese sandwiches with cucumber tomato salad
    • using the sweet Maui onion, red leaf lettuce, cherry tomatoes, and cucumber


  1. Looks like a good menu for the week!

    Those little green and purple tomatoes look like tomatillos that someone has removed from their husks.
