Menu Plan Monday 5/17 - 5/23 AND Garden Update

It's Monday! Is it just me, or has time been flying by lately? It seems like summer is zooming toward me at full speed and I'm not sure I'm ready for it!

I'm certainly ready to start eating the yummy produce from my patio garden, though. I'm impatiently waiting for my cherry tomatoes to vine-ripen. Here are a few pictures of what's going on in my garden:

Our serrano peppers are about two inches long!


Our crookneck squash are in full bloom!


Our watermelon plants are sending out feelers!


Our cherry tomatoes have exploded with fruit!


Picky Eater's cucumber plant has its first cuke!

Last week went well. I didn't adhere to my menu plan like I should have, but we ended up with some good eats. Here are a few of the things we enjoyed last week:










And here's what I'm expecting to prepare this week:

Breakfasts:
  • Peanut Butter Oatmeal
