What's Cooking - 12/3 Edition

I've GOT to get back on track with planning out our menu's and publishing them to my blog. I am WAY more apt to follow a meal plan if it's public. Weird... but it works.

This week's Bountiful Basket was packed full of great foods. I am excited about the foods I've planned to cook (which is kind of important if I'm going to actually make them!)

Here's a photo of what we got in our basket this week:

We received broccoli, a bunch of radishes, a handful of cucumbers, a pineapple, lots of persimmons, tomatoes, oranges, onions, several green bell peppers, butter lettuce, blackberries, apples, and pears.

Here's what I'm planning to serve this week:

~ Meatloaf, baked potatoes, and sauteed cabbage
~ Broccoli and chicken with brown rice
~ Pear, cucumber, radish, persimmon, pineapple with mixed green salad. Served with broiled salmon.
~ Brown rice and quinoa stuffed green peppers. Served with steamed broccoli
~ Enchiladas made with a sauce that will include the tomatoes and onions.
~ Two nights leftovers somewhere along the line.

I'm also going to bake a few loaves of pumpkin banana bread, honey whole wheat multi grain bread and one batch of chocolate peanut butter rice krispie rolls. I want to have at least one lunch of marinated cucumber salad. However, we're expecting some yucky weather this week. So, I expect to eat some belly filling food like beans and rice! HEAVENLY!

What are you making this week?
