Menu Plan Monday


We are thoroughly enjoying all the fresh Farmer’s Market produce we’ve been blessed with these past couple weeks.  Although we’ve been trying to add a bit more meat to our meals over the past few months; it is so easy for us to slip back into vegetarian eating with this fabulous abundance of produce!  

We actually went to two markets this weekend, and came home with lots of fresh greens, herbs, berries, cherries, zucchini, carrots, and radishes.  Also, the weather has been incredibly hot this week, so I’m trying to avoid using the oven as much as possible.  I am planning summery meals and limiting my baking.  I baked a couple loaves of bread this past week, so I won’t need to bake any this week.
