I had planned an extra meal last week just because we were grilling, and one night I felt sick still from a migraine I'd had so DH had leftovers. We have some extra grilled meats so I didn't need too much from the store this week which was nice. Here's this week's menu:

Jamaican chicken with pineapple and couscous
plum glazed pork chops with green beans and rolls
turkey saltimbocca with steamed lemon broccoli
sausage with red beans & rice
grilled chicken melts with watermelon
taco salad

Got beautiful yellowtail from Hmart today...had them filet it and then took the head and bones home, too. I made baked yellowtail with lemon, margarine, garlic, and dill with strawberries and blueberries and handheld cherry almond pies for dinner. I also have a yellowtail bone broth with lime and ginger on my stove to put away for lunches this week (it will go with some microwave rice, any leftover fish, and whatever veg I feel like adding).

Tomorrow, since my garden gave me 8 big tomatoes this weekend, I'm making dairy-free stuffed tomatoes with Italian sausage, Japanese eggplant, tomato, bell pepper, garlic, onion, basil, s&p, and breadcrumb (those who can have dairy will get a mozza sprinkle on top). I'll serve it with fresh peaches and plums.

I bought my girls fresh lychees and cherries and coconut milk, and asked them to try a dairy-free rice pudding with asian-style fruit and ingredients...we'll see if they take my bait:)...

I'll have Tues to Sat plans when my spouse hits Aldi's tomorrow night, but I know one meal will be burgers (since my daughter said we had a "ton" in the freezer)...after that, we'll see:)...

    Man . . . I wish we had an HMart closer! Love yellowtail. Love fresh lychee, too! Your dinner sounds amazing. You sound like me. After a halibut fishing charter, I was the only person on the boat who wanted my head and bones and not just the fillets.

    Our next few days:

    Sunday: Chicken katsu curry over rice with roasted broccoli
    Monday: Pasta, potatoes, and green beans with pesto, roasted purple cauliflower, bbq'd salmon
    Tuesday: Sara Udon (seafood and veggies in a light gravy over crispy thin noodles--it's a Nagasaki regional dish that I haven't had in 30 years, but loved when I was an exchange student. I was so excited to find the noodles for it at Uwajimaya in Beaverton.)

    Tried a new recipe this evening. It was awesome and we have leftovers.
    Half box bow tie pasta
    Can fire roasted tomatoes
    2 tbsp tube tomato paste
    2 clove chopped garlic
    1 C bell peppers ( I used red because it’s what we had)
    1/2 lg Vidalia onion
    Olive oil
    Adobo with cumin
    Chili powder
    Cayenne pepper
    Corn starch 1 tbsp
    Half and half 1 C
    1 C shredded cheddar or Monteray jack ( I used a mix)
    1 C of the starchy water the pasta cooked in
    2 chicken breast cut into strips and cooked in olive oil with the garlic and spices while pasta is cooking
    Set aside the chicken and sauté the peppers and onions in olive oil
    Return the chicken to pan
    Drain pasta reserving a cup of the water
    Add tomatoes, half of the starchy water, corn starch and half and half to pot pasta cooked in and as it thickens return the pasta to the pot
    Fold in the cheese and the chicken snd veggies
    Add additional starchy water to adjust the thickness of the sauce
    I didn’t measure the spices. I just added a few shakes of each and coated the chicken in adobo
    Hubby had seconds

    We are back from our trip and I wanted to plan out the last week of the month. We were going so many different directions in July, a big monthly plan didn’t happen.

    We have tomatoes, 120 pounds so far. So every meal except one will have tomatoes in it.

    1. Stuffed peppers and okra
    2. BLT, heavy on the T
    3. Hamburgers and green beans
    4. Chef salad
    5. Chicken salad on green salad
    6. Thai chicken basil rice
    7. Chili (to use up tomatoes!)

    For lunches I’ll be making spaghetti, messy sushi, egg salad, and bean burritos.

    For these menus I’ll need tortillas, and salad greens.
