So. Hot. Please, no oven! I don't want to do salads EVERY night, but wow, it's hot. What are your cool dinner ideas for hot summer days and nights?
We chose Kroger this week again. With how much amazing fruit is available right now and how much our kids want to eat it, we couldn't beat the prices. Their organic fruit prices are cheaper than Martin's organic fruit sales this week (again). So, while we're saving on fruit, we kind of have to settle with what else they happen to have for the rest of our grocery needs.
Mahi Mahi $5.99/lb
Organic Cherries $3.99/lb
Organic Mini Peeled Carrots 2 bags for $3
Organic grapes $1.99/lb
Organic strawberries 2 packs for $5
Stonyfield Organic Greek Yogurt Cups 10/$10 (plus coupon)
Blue Diamond Nut Thins 2/$4
All this great fruit, who needs to eat real food? Sigh. We do! Here it is:
Monday: Ginger Glazed Mahi Mahi, quinoa and roasted asparagus (the fish is cooked in a skillet and I can roast the asparagus in the toaster oven)
Tuesday: My husband's favorite oven baked BBQ chicken (drumsticks and thighs - the cheaper chicken), cauliflower roasted in the toaster oven, and mashed potatoes (yeah, I'll have to use the oven for this one....)
Wednesday: My daughter's favorite: spaghetti and meatballs with spinach - all stove top
Thursday: Vegetarian curry with sweet potatoes, tofu, broccoli, red pepper and coconut milk, served over rice (we are not big tofu eaters - it's SO controversial, but every once in a while....)
