Weekly Menu Aug 24-Aug 30

Here's what I have on hand to "use up" this week:

- a lot of mushrooms
- head of romaine lettuce
- three lovely slicing tomatoes
- a LOT of cherry tomatoes
- couple lbs of okra
- 2 sm and 2 lg eggplants
- 1 avocado
- 1 mango
- fresh pita
- 5 oz of goat cheese
- a handful of basil
- a LOT of cucumbers
- 1/4 peck of peaches
- some leftover chicken (from a roast last week)
- 6 or 7 figs from our fig tree (and more to be picked during the week for "snacks")
- a tub of plain yogurt

So, with that I am making:

  • Lunch - Pizza with Fresh Tomatoes (and mushrooms, basil and onions) Used up one slicing tomato, some mushrooms and some basil.

  • Dinner - Since we had such a late lunch, we kept dinner fairly light: Figs with Goat Cheese and Balsamic Vinegar and Baba Ganouj and Fresh Pita Used a bit of the goat cheese, the figs that were harvested this morning, 2 small eggplants and most of the fresh pita.


  • Lunch - left over pizza
  • Dinner - Mexican Chicken Salad and Sliced Mango. Will use up an avocado, the leftover chicken and some of the romaine.


  • Dinner - Quiche with Spinach, Mushrooms and Goat Cheese and Melon Salad. Will use up a frozen quiche base from my freezer and some mushrooms which I'll add. A sprinkling of goat cheese on top will use up the rest of the goat cheese.


  • Dinner - Eggplant Parmagiana and a Green Salad. Dessert: Peach Crisp and Vanilla Ice Cream. Will use up the 2 large eggplants, the rest of the romaine, and the peaches.


  • Dinner - Broiled Lemon Fish, Fresh Tomato & Basil Pasta, and Cucumber and Yogurt Salad. Will use up some cherry tomatoes and basil, cucumbers and plain yogurt.


  • Dinner - Pizza (we'll do cheese for the kids and whatever toppings we have on hand for the adults)

I'll add some of the recipes this week! Check out lots of great other menus at !
