Menu Monday

Here's what we'll be eating on this week:

Mon: Avocado and Romaine Salad

We're really loading up on the avocados this week (yay for me not so much for KB). I've heard that the dressing on this salad is really good, so hopefully I can recreate it. I'm still going strong on the weekly salad train and so far it's been really easy. I just wash and prep everything on Monday and then normally have enough left over to have salads for lunch most of the week.

I love soups and minestrone is one of my favorites.  It's supposed to be rainy and cold here all week, so this soup will just hit the spot.  I couldn't find any squash at my local Aldi (it's always luck of the draw there) so I'm going to throw in some sweet potatoes to beef it up a little bit.  I'm also going to add in some rice instead of pasta.  I thought I had a random box of something in my pantry, but when I got home it had magically disappeared.

Wed: Mexican Cauliflower Rice Bowl

This looks really interesting, but I'm not really sure how it's going to turn out. I love the Qdoba rice bowls, so I'm hoping it tastes a little something like that. I've heard of substituting cauliflower for rice before, but I've never actually done it.

Thurs: Turkey, Avocado and Hummus Wrap

I love all of these things, so this will definitely be a win for me. KB is not a huge fan of avocado, but hopefully if I can combine it with the hummus enough he won't even know it. We'll see.

What will you be eating this week???
