Weekly Meals

Week of 7/24 – 7/28

It’s tomato season and for those of you who have a garden with tons of tomatoes that you do not know what to do with, here are a couple of recipes to help you use them up! This post is made especially for my Aunt Betsy! Hope you enjoy!

Chinese restaurants serve mu shu pork with Mandarin pancakes. On a busy weeknight, whole-wheat tortillas are an easy sub.  Monday: Mu Shu Pork Wraps

This is a new recipe I came across! I had left over pork roast and coleslaw mix from last week that need to be used up and this recipe will do just that! I plan to make these wraps as is, but will likely use corn tortillas I already have in the fridge! Whole wheat or corn tortillas are the better options over white flour tortillas. Serving size: 2 wraps

Pan-Seared Lake Trout with Bacon and Cranberry Bean Succotash Recipe  Tuesday: Pan-Seared Lake Trout with Bacon and Cranberry Bean Succotash

This recipe is a repost but I love the simple, colorful succotash from it! As stated before, use any type of fish and bean you like for this dish. Terragon is not a herb that I use often so I plan to substitute it for another fresh herb I have like parsley or cilantro. Serving size: 1 fish fillet (5-8 ounces depending on fish) and 1 cup succotash

   Wednesday: Teriyaki Chicken Drumsticks with Tropical Fruit Salad

I picked this recipe this week because my favorite grocery store Aldi has a lot of fruit on sale this week that I can use to make this tropical salad side dish! Any cut of chicken could be used instead of drumsticks – chicken breast or tenderloin are the leanest cuts of chicken which is what I plan to use. Serving size: 4 ounces chicken with 1 cup fruit salad

Avocado Caprese Chicken Quesadilla Recipe  Thursday: Chicken & Avocado Caprese Quesadillas

We eat quesadillas often in our house and I love finding unique recipes to put a twist on the standard chicken & cheese quesadilla. As mentioned above, whole wheat or corn are the better tortilla option over white flour tortillas. This recipes uses rotisserie chicken but you can always bake or grill your own chicken breast or tenderloin. Serving size: 1 quesadilla
