Hummus Love and Weekly Meals

We went shopping at Costco over the weekend, and I was very excited when I finally found the individual Sabra hummus packs. I have always wanted to buy them so that I wouldn’t find the teenager’s “leftovers” in my big hummus container… Yes, I have told him many times to please not dig right into "my” container with veggies, crackers, chips, pita bread, etc., but somehow he never seems to hear me… I can’t wait for him to have kids (actually that’s not exactly true!) and find “leftovers” in his hummus container…

Anyway, my Costco didn’t carry the individual containers for the longest time. But now it does. And here is a cute little container that I enjoyed with some veggies (carrots, cucumbers, and mini peppers). The teenager already ate several containers on his own… Yes, I also can’t wait for him to have teenage boys who eat ALL his food within hours of bringing it home from the grocery store…

After not planning meals for a few weeks, I was ready to get back to planning meals this week:

Tuesday: Quesadillas with sautéed onions, mushrooms, and peppers. On the side we’ll have chunky, fresh guacamole.

Wednesday: Salmon in a ginger/lemon grass sauce over quinoa and a salad.

Thursday: Lettuce wraps: marinated tofu, carrots, and cucumbers wrapped in lettuce. We’ll have some almond butter sauce on the side for dipping.

Friday: We are getting our second CSA delivery, and I hope to be inspired. In the last delivery we got a Napa cabbage, and I made a slaw with a buttermilk dressing. If there is another Napa cabbage, that’s what I’ll make. I’m also thinking of some sort of a veggie stir fry and some brown rice.
