Full steam ahead... April Menu #3

I missed posting last week entirely-
it's been so hectic that I didn't get to it!
(No worries... we did eat.)

Our garden is in full production of all sorts of green things:

This weekend I discovered why broccoli has 'florets':
if you don't harvest and eat them in a timely manner, THEY FLOWER!
They produce pretty little yellow flowers, which are edible, but let me just say that it's pretty weird eating broccoli with flowers.  I made them into a quiche where they are somewhat disguised, but we can still eat them.

This week is full of standardized testing at school, and we will all be in need of some serious comfort when we come home at the end of the day.
Sunday~ pizza for lunch, and fend for yourself at dinnertime (no one was very hungry)
Monday~ Homemade Cheese Ravioli (made with wonton wrappers) and tomato sauce, and a tossed salad to go with (lettuce from our garden)
Tuesday~ Leftover chicken cacciatore from last week, on top of mashed potatoes
Wednesday~ Homemade whole wheat mac'n'cheese, steamed broccoli from the garden
Thursday~ Breakfast for Dinner: eggs, bacon, grapefruit, strawberries, cheese grits
Friday~ Roast beef with mushrooms over mashed potatoes, sauteed swiss chard (garden)
Saturday~ TBA :)

Share your menus at Menu Plan Monday!
