Meal Plan Monday Post

It's been a busy week in our household! We have been working feverishly to get one "new" house set up and one "old" house cleaned up! On Saturday we turned in our keys at the old house so now we can focus our energy on making this new house our very own home.

As you might can imagine things were a little up in the air some nights in the kitchen. On Monday night, for the first time, we got out a pan to make a frozen sauce for some pasta. Then realized after dinner we hadn't packed up the dish soap yet. Patrick got a free pass on the dishes that night! We had another freezer meal Tuesday night -- clean up is so easy with those! On Wednesday we had fresh pasta from Rise's new pasta pop ventures as The Rollout. Thursday was another meal in the kitchen and this time no short cuts. On Friday my mom came to help unpack boxes and be an extra set of hands! It sure was nice having her here. Here's our what we did last week and over the weekend with her here!

Meal Plan for Monday June 23 - Sunday June 29

   Monday - Frozen saucy scallops with mushroom and peas sauce (from Trader Joe's) added to pasta and a salad -- served with red wine, perfect for our Monday night showing of "The Bachelorette"
   Tuesday - Freezer meal: Chicken Parmesan Meatloaf (was Friday's post actually)
   Wednesday - The Rollout pasta pop-up dinner hosted by Rise
Here's The Rollout menu posted to Facebook

We tried the Zucchini and Squash Ravioli in an herb cream sauce (a favorite), the Agnolotti stuffed with local basil, pine nuts, lemon zest, ricotta and parmesan in a Pomadorro Sauce, and a Caesar salad. 

   Thursday - Baked chicken breasts with bbq sauce, roasted corn and fingerling potatoes
   Friday - Marinated salmon (with dijon, balsamic vinegar, maple syrup, olive oil) and roasted zucchini, beets
   Saturday - Breakfast Toast and eggs with avocado
      Dinner Pasta with squash, peas, and basil
   Sunday - Breakfast Waffles with fresh strawberries
      Dinner Fried green tomatoes salad
