Menu Plan Monday Week 19 (2013)

So, this week I have not emptied out my fridge like I should have been doing.  We started a 30 day challenge to eat more greens, especially in the form of green smoothies.  While we've been getting our smoothies in, I haven't made as much salad as I normally do because of it.  So I have a huge bag of spinach and kale we're slowly knocking out each day, as well as some risidual veggies from last week that didn't get eaten.  So, I'm  gonna use up the rest of those veggies this week, hopefully before I have to go grocery shopping again.

I am also in LOVE with hummus lately!!  And not just any hummus...Trader Joe's Organic Hummus.  It's absolutely delicious. I know it's VERY easy to make but the few times I have made it, the flavor was just off for me so I didn't really want to try again.  Finally I realized I think it was the olive oil I was using when I made it. It's a big part of the flavor so it's important to get a good one.  So I'll be making a go at that again this week, along with some garlic naan and mint chutney to make a well rounded Mediterranen meal.
