I love this time of year when zucchini, squash and tomatoes are reasonably priced (and finally starting to ripen in our garden)! On the meal plan this week I have 3 new recipes including Spinach and Mushroom Quiche, Zu-Canoes using zucchini as the canoes that hold the filling and Parmesan-Squash Cakes! You'll also find grilled chicken and veggie skewers, lemon garlic shrimp and more!
What's on your menu this week?
Grilled turkey sandwiches
Leftover pasta from last night
Steamed carrots (Good deal every day for the 2 lb bag from HT)
Cherries ($1.97 from Food Lion through Tuesday, 6/24)
Sauteed lemon garlic shrimp (Shrimp on sale at HT and Food Lion through 7/23)
Zu-Canoes (a great way to use frugal zucchini this time of year! You basically stuff the zucchini “canoes” with tomatoes, basil and mozzarella for a delicious side! I plan on using a fat free Italian dressing. Click HERE for the recipe on EatingWell.com.
Veggie “chicken” parmesan using veggie chicken patties (the Mornginstar veggie products were a great deal at Kroger last week with the Mega event and $1 printable coupons)
Pasta and pasta sauce (both good deals at HT through 7/23 with Barilla pasta coupon and Buy 2 Get 3 Ragu deals)
Spinach and mushroom quiche (I am using skim milk instead of half and half or whole milk). Click HERE for an easy basic quiche recipe that you can embellish with your favorite meat and/or veggies.
Parmesan-Squash cakes (uses shredded zucchini instead of potatoes. I plan to use less Parmesan and no oil to lower fat content). Click HERE for the recipe.
