Melon Salsa


Here, I am doing more menu planning with I'm an Organizing Junkie and finding more deals at Pick N Save for $5 Dinners .

The saga with my mom continues this week and so, I need to keep it really, really simple. At Pick N Save, they are having a Melon Mania:-) All their melons are on sale 2 for $6 (normally 3.99/each). I picked some up and I am pairing it with grilled fish this week.

Here is what I am serving:
Monday: Semi-Homemade Spaghetti (Cleaning/Doctor Appointment)

Tuesday: Leftover Buffet (Doctor Appointment/Playdate/Swim Class)

Wednesday: Grilled Fish with Melon Salsa (Doctor Appointment) (See Recipe Below)

Thursday: Chicken and Pasta (Swim Class)

Friday: Eat Out

Melon Salsa

3 Tbs fresh orange juice
1/2 tsp salt

Directions:1. In a large serving bowl, stir together the tomatoes, honeydew melon, cantaloupe, red onion, jalapeno and cilantro. Stir in the orange juice, almonds, salt and lime juice. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours before serving for best flavor.
