Weekly Menu Plan:

New Recipes: (others can be found on M&H’s Recipes Archive Page)

  • Fruit, Cheese and Herb Skewers (instead of skewers, I layer them in a large mouth mason jar and drizzle with a mixture of 1 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar + 2 Tbsp. granulated sugar – it’s faster and has a fun tangy sweetness!)
  • Green Pepper Egg Rings with Tomatoes
  • Giada’s Spinach Lasagna Rolls
  • Cream Cheese Dill Spread (for Cucumber Sandwiches and/or Veggie Dip): combine 2 blocks of cream cheese with 1/2 c. mayonnaise and 1/2 c. sour cream; add 1 Tbsp. dried dill (or 2 Tbsp. fresh), 1 tsp. garlic powder, 1 tsp. onion powder, 1/4 tsp. salt and 1/8 tsp. pepper. Peel cucumbers and slice thin for sandwiches.
  • Chicken Satay
  • Thai Cucumber Salad (add cooked and chilled rice noodles to salad, if desired, or serve rice noodles hot on the side)
  • “Compost Pizza”
