Here’s what we ate for dinner this week:

Tuesday: Leftovers
When we know we’ll have a lot of food leftover (like after an epic 4th of July backyard bbq!), we plan a leftovers night right into our meal plan! Leftover Broccoli Raisin Salad did not disappoint!

Wednesday: Meatballs with Fauxmato Sauce, and Green Salad
—> Hill Country Meatballs recipe in Down South Paleo
—> Fauxmato Sauce recipe on our blog
—> Green Salad is whatever veg we have in the fridge, but you can find salad inspiration –> HERE!

Fauxmato Sauce (our no-nightshade, AIP-friendly, marinara-style sauce) is becoming a weekly dinner staple. With this sauce, I feel like I’m eating Italian food again… and I’m taking full advantage! Add in some flavorful meatballs and a simple side salad and dinner was easy and delicious.

Thursday: Lobster & Avocado Salad 
—> Lobster & Avocado Salad recipe from Make it Paleo II

We added our own spin to this classic salad by throwing in some bacon and cucumber! We also used wild caught Langostinos instead of lobster tail to save some money. Not a single complaint from three boys while eating a big salad for dinner = winner!

Friday: Grilled Pork Chops with Stone Fruit, Grilled Zucchini with Pesto
—> Grilled Pork Chops with Stone Fruit in Paleo Magazine Summer Cookbook
—> Grilled Zucchini with Pesto recipe in Paleo Magazine Summer Cookbook

This was like summer on a plate. We LOVED the stone fruits with the smoky, salty grilled pork! And the zucchini smothered with fresh pesto was incredible too! Paleo Magazine Summer Cookbook did NOT disappoint! Find it at Whole Foods and Barnes and Noble Books Stores.
