Five Meals for Your Family Table Week 34

Oh my goodness...I cannot believe we are rolling into September this week!! We are spending some time at the lake this week to soak up the last bit of lazy days before my crew goes back to school.
Here are five meal ideas for your family table this week.
Grilled fish is a staple for us in the Summer. Grilled Salmon with fresh pineapple salsa is a little bit of summer on a plate. Simply season the salmon with a drizzle of EVOO, sprinkle with salt & pepper and grill about 5 minutes per side. You can grab the recipe for the salsa here.

If you have not grilled meatballs before, I suggest you do. These grilled meatball subs are so, so good. You can grab the recipe here.
You just can't beat a kabob on the grill and these Pork and Apple Kabobs are the perfect Summer to Fall transition dinner!
Almond Crusted Chicken is probably the most requested meal at our house. I don't make it that often in the Summer, since I try to grill often. But I miss this meal... time to bring it back.
For the chicken, use 1 lb of boneless chicken breasts and pound each until they are about 1/4" thick. (I also cut each in half lengthwise before I pound, so I have 6 pieces). Set up two large, shallow bowls or pie plates work well too. In one place 3 egg whites & 2 TBSP of water and whisk. In the other place 1 cup almond flour, zest of 1 lemon and 1 TSP salt and 1/2 TSP pepper. Heat a few tablespoons of coconut oil in a pan over medium- high heat. Dip each piece in the egg, then the flour and put in the pan. Cook 2-3 minutes on each side, transfer to a foil lined baking sheet and bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through. I top mine with a very simple lemon dijon sauce , that I have shared before . Take 6oz plain Greek yogurt, 1-2 TBSP dijon mustard, juice of half a lemon and salt & pepper to taste. Mix together and add a little water to thin it out. It's a perfect topping for seafood or chicken and without all the additives of a pre-made sauce. You can grab the recipe for the the smashed potatoes and sprouts here.
Finishing up the week with one of my favorite burgers. The Sundried Tomato turkey burger.  Mix 1lb of ground turkey with 1/4 cup of chopped sundried tomatoes, 1 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp pepper. Form into 4 burgers and grill until cooked through. They are delicious topped with some crumbled feta and spinach!
Have the best week friends! See you tomorrow for Show & Tell Tuesday....there's always room for one more at our family table.
