A mom of all boys...the joys and the challenges of being the only woman in the bunch!

It's still June...we still have a garden...and a menu...
I continue to be amazed at the amount of produce that is coming from our garden. Son #3 has actually asked if he could start selling tomatoes... there are so many of them!
I found a recipe for freezing cucumbers that has proven to be a hit. I've roasted and frozen so many tomatoes that I'm sure we'll have enough for the whole winter! I've made several variations on jalapeno poppers and frozen 'empties' for later. We've made delicious salsa too.
So I'm doing my best to include as much of our bounty as I can. I'd love it if beef went on sale soon, because with hubby's eating plan, we gotta have protein.
Sunday~ HAPPY FATHER'S DAY! Hubby has requested a dinner at home of spaghetti and meatballs. We will also have the cucumbers I mentioned above. No bread, so I'll probably make some cheese crisps.
Monday~ Leftover roast (from last week), green beans and new potatoes from the garden, cucumbers and tomatoes.
Wednesday~ Hubby and I will be home alone (I know - GASP!) so we may have a date night. Out or in has yet to be decided.
Thursday~ DS#3 comes back home with Marine Son, and Airman Son will descend too. YEA! I'm planning to roast a turkey from the freezer, and have collards, sliced tomatoes, corn on the cob, and Swiss beans to go with it.
Friday~ I'll have a rehearsal, but we'll grill when I get home: burgers, dogs, sausages, and maybe some of our various veggies.
Saturday~ My dad & sis are involved in a local musical that we'll see, so I'm leaving things open.
