Menu Plan Monday: March 2nd

This week was the first time I have ever gotten an add on to my Bountiful Basket.  I got the lunch Box Pack. And I am set for the next week or two.  Depending on how much these boys go though. I am already down 6 apples and a pear.  They are eyeballing the giant carrots, but I will have to cut them up for them. Otherwise I'm afraid they will use them as swords.  Here is what I got this week. 2 stalks of celery, baby carrots and giant ones too, 2 heads of lettuce, 3 bunches of broccoli, 2 avocados, 12 oranges, 18 apples, a bunch of bananas, 3 pears, a bundle of asparagus, 9 tomatoes, and English cucumber, and a pineapple.  I'm set!  The best part is that I've already found a way to work most of it into our menu for the week!  



Enchiladas, spanish rice and beans.  Rolled over from last week.

Lemon pepper turkey and asparagus over brown rice pilaf

Leftovers / Chicken Cesar salads.

Herb buttered salmon with broccoli and sliced tomatoes.

Balsamic marinated steak, roasted potatoes and green beans.

Chicken stir fry over rice.

I am going to be cutting up one stalk of celery and the big carrots to freeze for future meals.  The boys and David all take apples to School/Work for snacks.  And I'm not sure if I want to juice the oranges or what. Anyone have a fun orange recipe?
