Week 16 - Fireworks

Summer has finally arrived, in perfect time for the holiday weekend.  This is the time of year that my husband takes over a lot of the cooking, so these days I'm looking for recipes based around some sort of grilled main course.  Unless it involves the baking some delicious summer fruit dessert, I'm a lot less interested in indoor food preparations.  Fire up some protein, whip up a veggie side, and done.  Time to light the grill, and keep it going all summer long. 

In the box this week
(top) kale, sorrel, lettuce, celery
(bottom) kohlrabi, cucumbers, grapefruit, onions, zucchini, blackberries, strawberries

Meal plan for the week
Sunday: Grilled Zucchini and Onion salad with grilled sausages
Monday: Red, white and blue crisp (with Blackberries, Strawberries and white peaches) for a 4th of July potluck
Tuesday: Grilled coconut Kale, asian style Kohlrabi and grilled skirt steak
Thursday: Grilled chicken with a Grapefruit marinade

Using recipes for some of the meals this week... winging it with the available ingredients for other meals.  Some new produce on the menu this week (kohlrabi, sorrel), but excited to experiment as long as it doesn't involve too much time slaving over the stove.  Happy 4th to all!
This week's title is inspired by the song of the same name by Alan Menken from the movie The Little Mermaid.
