weekly menu: june 27-july 1, 2016

monday - mango habanero shrimp tacos with peach salsa

recipe inspiration: tilapia tacos with peach relish



planned edits:

1. use shrimp instead of tilapia and marinade/cook it in a mango habanero glaze

2. eliminate jalapeño from the salsa recipe because the mango habanero glaze already packs tons of heat

3. add avocado to the tacos

tuesday - baked chicken, bean, and rice taquitos

recipe inspiration: chicken, bean, and rice taquitos

planned edits:

1. white rice instead of brown

2. no cheese :) 

wednesday - creamy rosemary polenta with fire-roasted tomatoes and mini chicken meatballs

polenta recipe inspiration: roasted Rosemary tomatoes with polenta

meatball recipe inspiration: mini chicken meatballs with crispy potatoes and romesco 

planned edits:

1. use half the amount of fire-roasted tomatoes for the polenta recipe since we are adding meatballs

2. Eliminate Parmesan cheese from the meatball recipe but mix in one cup of chopped spinach instead (didn't use any other part of that recipe i.e. no potatoes or romesco) 

thursday - taco rubbed turkey burgers with salsa verde

recipe inspiration: taco-rubbed burgers with avocado and crushed tortilla chips

planned edits:

1. use ground turkey (93% lean) instead of ground beef

2. mix in chopped green onions and spinach with the ground turkey plus some minced garlic to form a better turkey burger
