Menu Plan this week (6/22)

I am slacking on cooking because it is so hot!!!

This week's menu plan:

Monday: Salmon Burgers + Green Salad + Sweet Potato Fries
Tuesday: Eggplant Artichoke Parm in Slow Cooker w/Spaghetti (recipe from Southern Living) plus salad and maybe green beans.
Wednesday: Leftovers
Thursday: Middle Eastern night: Chick Pea patties (recipe here) + Tabouli and maybe hummus, I don't think I'll make the salad listed in the link. I will use leftover buns that I bought using Target coupons last week instead of pita bread. I am trying to throw away less food.
Friday: not sure, we have family in town starting Friday a.m., so we may go out.

I have not tried the recipes for the salmon burgers or the chick pea patties before, so I'll post later on how they are.

  1. Those chick-pea patties actually look yummy. I'd love to find out if they taste as good as they look!

  2. Slow cooker is always great on lazy summer days! Have a nice week!

  3. Thank you! I will update about the chick pea patties, hopefully they turn out well.

  4. Yes, please update about the chickpea patties! I'm trying to cook from scratch with chickpeas more, and I'd love to try out this recipe sometime if you give it the stamp of approval!

  5. unfortunately they were tasteless in my opinion.. I would stick with falafel, hummus, or there are even some good chick pea pasta sauce recipes too.
