Monday ~ Pioneer Woman’s Meatballs, mashed red potatoes, peas.
I made the meatballs in the morning and slow cooked them in the Crockpot. They turned out great and will make a great lunch for Mr. Miller today. I used free range organic bison and corn grits in the recipe.
Tuesday ~ Pasta with fresh zucchini, tomatoes and garlic, Cucumber Salad
I use rice pasta and toss with sautéed fresh tomatoes, garlic, basil and zucchini. Serve with a quick cucumber and onion salad. Great filling meal on a hot, hot night.
Wednesday ~ Tacos
A Green Acres staple! Bison and black bean tacos served with fresh corn tortillas. Grampie and Grandma brought me a tortilla press from Houston last week. Thanks, I can’t wait to use it!
Thursday ~ Sandwiches and Fruit
Our last Tee Ball game is this night so it will be a simple light dinner of Sandwiches and fresh fruit.
Friday ~ Chicken and Rice, Broccoli
Simple Crockpot recipe! Slow cook 2 chicken breasts with Cream of Mushroom soup. Shred. Add 1 cup sour cream. Serve over brown rice with steamed broccoli.
Saturday ~ Hotdogs, cottage cheese, fruit
My boys love grilled hot dogs. I buy uncured beef hotdogs at Whole Foods that are amazing. No nitrites or nitrates so they are safe for Mr. Miller, a win win situation here. I will cut up some watermelon and have cottage cheese. Super easy and another reason to use that fabulous outdoor kitchen.
Sunday ~ Steak, baked sweet potatoes, corn on the cob
My meat and potato guy loves his steak. I have one KC strip left in the freezer that we will grill. I will bake the sweet potatoes in the Crockpot (again trying to avoid using the oven), and steam the corn in the mircowave.
I hope this shares some ideas and ways to have simple, yet very satisfying dinners during this hot summer.
