Fresh Corn - because my daughter stopped at a farm stand on her way home from college for the weekend
Grilled Steaks - and I specifically defrosted 3 for the 4 of us because some of us prefer smaller portions of meat
Pasta Salad - made with the colorful noodles that include a half serving of veggies (RONZONI Garden Delight) and with veggies from our garden
Banana Bread - for dessert - because I can't stand to throw away bananas and banana bread is just too quick and easy. It calls for 2 cups of flour and I use 1 1/2 of all purpose and 1/2 of whole wheat. It calls for sour cream and I use lite. I usually cut back on the sugar a little bit (don't tell my husband).
And there you have it - dinner!
- think about your veggies and fruit first
- plan on smaller portions of lean meats and protein
- go for the whole grains
- go with what is fresh and in season
- Enjoy a family meal around the table!
