Menu Plan Monday ~ Week of June 20, 2011

We have VBS this week so I will not be making dinner at all since they feed us an actual meal at church. That only left me with figuring out lunch since I would have no leftovers and I don't need to eat out every day. I made some chicken patties with ground chicken that I got on sale and froze them with a strip of bacon on top to have as sandwiches this week. I also made some homemade easy cheese taquitos and added chicken and put those in the freezer as well. Then easy sides to go with about anything, potato salad and cucumber salad

In My Mailbox This Week

Cucumber Salad


1 red onion, halved and thinly sliced

3 tbsp. rice vinegar

3 cucumbers, peeled, seeded and thinly sliced

salt and pepper

2 tbsp. olive oil

2 tbsp. chopped fresh dill (or 1 tbsp. dried)

Toss onion with 1 tbsp. vinegar; set aside. Place cucumbers in a colander an toss with 1/4 tsp. salt. Drain for 10 minutes. Pat dry.

Mix onion and cucumbers in a large bowl. Toss with olive oil and remaining 2 tbsp. vinegar. Add dill; season with salt and pepper. Cover and chill until ready to serve.

I found this recipe here exactly as I've written it above. The only change I made was add a little more salt.
