Menu Planning at Lil Daisies --Yum!

So, it has been awhile since I have done some menu planning...or rather posted. This week is somewhat of a busy week. The Fourth of July celebrations may be cancelled in our area due to fire weather. The smoke has been horrible.
I am suppose to sing at the celebrations if it continues, if not I am not sure what our plans are going to be. I have not really done any planning regarding what to eat that guess we will just have to see when it gets closer.
Life has been busy over at our home. I do have lots of things to share, but then there are times when I am not sure where to begin or what to say. Sound familiar to some of you?
Here is our menu for the week. I am being flexible. Things may change depending on circumstances, my mood, etc.
I have a recipe posted at the end of this post. Enjoy!

Summer Rolls
Thai Cucumber Radish Salad
Sticky Rice w/ dipping sauces

Mahi Mahi Tacos
Black Beans
Fruit Salad

shrimp with white beans
creamy polenta

Pizza (Grilled)

Mahi Mahi Lettuce Wraps


2 garlic chopped finely
1/8 tsp of red pepper flakes (or more depending on your desired heat)
2 cups broth (chicken or vegetarian--we use the veggie)
1 cup frozen peas
grated lemon zest
4 scallions, finely chopped
2 cups of couscous
1/3 cup finely chopped cilantro
1/4 cup sliced almonds, toasted
1/4 cup green olives with pimiento, chopped

In a medium saucepan, drizzle EVOO and add garlic and red pepper flakes. Cook until garlic is soft and fragrant (1 minute). Add broth, peas, scallions, lemon zest, and bring to a boil. Stir in couscous, cover, and turn off heat; let stand for about 5 minutes. Stir in the cilantro, almonds and olives.
