We purchased the FILL THE GRILL special at Whole Foods this week which includes 8 pack of Applegate Farms natural hot dogs, 8 hamburgers and a whole side of beef ribs. We normally only eat red meat a couple of times a week, but this was such a great deal, we decided to go for it! Plus, it’s summertime and we LOVE grilling out.

(I might go back before the end of the month and buy it again to freeze for later this summer.)

Here is my plan for this week:

MONDAY- Ribs on the grill (marinated overnight in the fridge), corn on the cob, roasted asparagus, berries and watermelon for dessert (watermelon and berries all on sale this week at Kroger)

TUESDAY- Salad Bar (chop every veggie in the fridge, hard boiled eggs, shredded cheese, etc and let everyone make their own salad! Great way to use the odds and ends in the fridge) whole grain rolls

WEDNESDAY- Whole Grain Spaghetti and Meatballs (Bertolli Organic Pasta Sauce is on sale this week at Publix, using half the hamburgers to make meatballs)

THURSDAY- Bacon Cheeseburgers (hamburgers on the grill with melted cheese, BBQ sauce and a slice of turkey bacon), roasted sweet potatoes, green salad

FRIDAY- Hot dogs on the grill, homemade salsa (tomatoes, cilantro, onion, lime juice, salt and pepper,& black beans in the food processor) whole grain chips, watermelon

BREAKFASTS: Organic Whole Grain Muffins (used the recipe from the free downloadable muffin recipe book I posted last week. They are delicious!) or scrambled eggs and sliced fruit

LUNCHES: PB&J, Turkey sandwiches

SNACKS: string cheese, fruit, yogurt (Stonyfield was on sale at Whole Foods this week!)
