Meal Plan Monday: Week 14

This week we are starting up coach pitch baseball so we are going back to the crazy schedule that demands dinner that can be eaten picnic style. I call this dinner in a box because we got containers at Ikea that we can add or remove spacers to create up to three separate spots in the box.

With summer starting (Ha! It is about 58 here and rainy) I have been wanting to do more on the grill so I am going to integrate that into the planning this week. We also brought home a ham-hock from our visit to the my husbands parents so I need to use that which means split pea soup.

Day 1: Split pea soup
Day 2: LO soup
Day 3: Dinner in a box, BBQ Chicken, Artichokes, nectarines
Day 4: Chicken salad with peaches and avocado (Dinner in a box) with this dressing
Day 5: Stuffed squash
Day 6: LO Stuffed Squash
Day 7: Fish curry

Stuffed Squash:

Three acorn quash or any other small squash halfed, seeded, and cooked until a fork can easily poke the flesh. (Cook in the oven open side down on a rimmed baking sheet with about 1 inch of water at 350f).
1 recipe of the filling for sloppy joes found here
Scoop the sloppy joes mix into the bowl of the squash sprinkle with cheese and place in the oven under the broiler to allow the cheese to melt
Serve with salad.

Chicken Salad:
Pull the chicken off of 3-4 left over peices of bbq chicken
3-4 hand fulls of lettuce or spinach
2 Fresh peaches cubed
1 avocado diced
1/2 dressing recipe
