Where has this month gone?!

It is crazy how time flies by! Especially when your friends are in town visiting! Meemaw came to town to visit her grand babies, and Granddad helped us turn our garden. We ordered seeds and got soil and compost for this arid climate and hard ground that we are trying to plant our food in. I am estimating about $500 worth of produce to come from our backyard. Which is great because we have put a lot of money into the fence, bricks, soils and seeds. After the garden was planted, I scooped the kids up and took them to Scottsdale to get some girlfriend time and hang out by the pool in the sun!
What a refresher that was! My mini vacation with my babies gave me some energy to come back to Burque and get Lucy's birthday cards made and plan for her party!
We will be celebrating her first birthday in Southern NM, and getting in a full moon yoga class at the White Sands!

So my menus haven't been posted recently, but that doesn't mean we haven't been eating! I thought that for this blog I would just post some suggestions for dinner. We are currently still using the CSA until our crops come in! Local, fresh, organic healthy food for our bodies!

Spinach Custard tart on Phyllo dough with herbs and broccoli
Chicken Alfredo with Roasted Red Peppers
Cobb Salad with homemade Ranch dressing, bacon, avocado, eggs, and blue cheese
Hot Pastrami And Swiss Sandwiches with spicy mustard
veggie Ragout over Tortellini (Radishes, snap peas, asparagus) topped with Parmesan
White Fish with Mango, Avocado Cucumber, Basil and Lime
Spinach and Mushroom Enchiladas with NM Green Chile
Meatloaf (breadcrumbs, eggs, onions, spices) and Blue Cheese mashed potatoes

This week a few friends had BBQ's so I didn't have to cook too much!
And I stayed with my mom and sisters working on birthday cards, so we cooked up there!

Sat- Beans and Rice with smoked sausage
Sun- BBQ at my sisters
Monday- Crab Cakes with Greek Yogurt and Lemon and Asparagus
Wednesday- Fresh Taos Egg Salad Sandwiches and Couscous
Thursday- Salmon and Crispy Potatoes over Spinach
Friday-Cobb Salad
Saturday-Green Pizza with homemade dough, arugula, broccoli, and mozzarella

Thank you to peacefulmamma's blog for getting me through this weeks menu planning! I love that my friends also blog about their menus because it gives me great ideas for healthy cooking for my family!
Happy Eating!
