MENU Wed 6/23 through Tue 6/29

Produce Day Has Arrived!

I received corn, tomatoes, peaches, a cucumber, a Sprite melon, cucumbers, and blueberries from The Produce Box this week. I still have an eggplant, too, which I will attempt to grill tonight.

Tuesday night, we added Tomato Pie to the menu, and it was fantastic - full of fresh, local tomatoes. My mother-in-law doesn't like tomatoes much, but she's a fan of this dish. Give it a try!

Here's the week's menu:

WED 6/23 - We did leftovers last night, having Fresh Cucumber Salad, Tomato Pie, Pesto Pasta Salad, and hot dogs.

THU 6/24 - Grilled Pork Chops, Grilled Eggplant (which my father-in-law said is very good, so I'll give it a try), the last of the leftover Tomato Pie, and Fresh Cucumber Salad.

FRI 6/25 - Roasted Chicken Quarters, Roasted Corn with Shallot Vinaigrette, Wild Rice Mix.

SAT 6/26 - Grilled Lamb Chops, Roasted Rosemary Potatoes, Grilled Corn. We'll grill hot dogs for lunch. As an afternoon snack, we'll have Tzatsiki Sauce with chips &/or veggies.
Here's a photo of the corn I grilled last week:

SUN 6/27 - BBQ Chicken Legs (though I may grill rather than bake them), Mashed Potatoes, and Glazed Parsnips and Carrots.

MON 6/28 - The last of the pre-made frozen Stuffed Chicken Rolls, Pasta with Pesto, Steamed Corn. If I still have tomatoes, I'll make Tomato Pie again, too.

TUE 6/29 - Italian Sausage pasta, salad, bread.

WED 6/30 - Grilled Hamburgers, pasta salad.

Coming next week: Tilapia, Stir Fry, Taco Salad, and maybe some Shrimp, too!
