Night 1: Hamburgers topped with tomato slices and grilled eggplant (My eggplant method – Slice crosswise, douse in olive oil. Prepare a dish with lemon juice and minced garlic. Grill eggplant slices until tender, then throw them in the prepared dish. Use these to top burgers, and use any leftovers on sandwiches throughout the week.)

Nights 4: Mexican butternut squash and corn saute
