The weather is finally getting crisper here in North Texas. While the calendar has said for weeks that Fall is here, the weather is finally starting to agree.
We have tons of produce on hand that is perfect for this time of year. I have sweet potatoes and white potatoes to use up. I have a couple of heads of red cabbage and a bunch of carrots I need to use up. Of course we have lettuce and tomatoes and such.
Here is how I plan to use up fall produce in my meal plan this week.
Baked Chicken, Sweet Potatoes and Carrots– this is a great way to use up a lot of our produce. Instead of adding yellow potatoes and sweet potatoes, I am only going to do the sweet potatoes and instead add carrots. I think I might even add in some red cabbage. This sounds perfect for dinner.
Baked Lime Garlic Salmon– easy peasy. Served with rice and a veggie and rolls. We have some fresh Alaska salmon in the deer freeze that a friend gave us.
Cheese Scrambled Eggs– with bacon and biscuits. Does your family love breakfast for dinner? We do!
Fish Tacos with Red Cabbage– I am going to mix this up a bit too. Instead of grilled fish, I have some frozen beer battered fish. I think it is cod… I will have to check. I made tacos before using this- it’s been a while, but the kids loved it. Two of the kids I tell them it is chicken… it is the only way they will eat it. The only fish they do not complain about is salmon. This will be a way to use up some of the red cabbage and some avocado and tomatoes I have on hand from our produce delivery. And we like to use feta cheese for fish tacos. I can use the leftover feta for the next recipe.
Crockpot Mediterranean Chicken– we love this! Served on a bed of rice with hummus and pita on the side.
Leftover Buffet– if there are any leftover.
What day each week do you create your meal plan? I would love to know what you’re having this week!
