And.... it's August.
So we got home on Friday, and Saturday I did some cooking. I finally made the Eggplant Rollatini, which we'll have this week. (It looked and smelled yummy!) I also made a big batch of homemade macaroni and cheese, and pureed some butternut squash from the garden to 'hide' in there. Ds#3 ate some this weekend, and I froze the rest. Gotta get those veggies in my boy however I can!
So things may get switched around a little this week, because I know we will have a couple of occasions to get together with friends, but here's the plan:
Sunday~ Beef short ribs in the crockpot, green beans, mac'n'cheese for ds#3, low-carb linguine for hubs. Zucchini brownies for dessert (we were given the largest zucchini I've ever seen. Really.)
Monday~ The now infamous Eggplant Rollatini, tossed salad
Tuesday~ Chicken breasts in mushroom gravy, whole wheat egg noodles, green beans, corn on the cob. (It's National Ice Cream Sandwich Day, so that's my plan for a special dessert!!)
Wednesday~ Chef's salads
Thursday~ Cookout with friends!!! Burgers, chicken, sausage, perhaps baked beans, coleslaw, deviled eggs, etc, etc...
Friday~ Strata, bacon, perhaps some diced potatoes, and watermelon or canteloupe (both were given to us, and we'll polish off whatever's left of them!)
Saturday~ Probably leftovers. We'll make it interesting with National Rootbeer Float Day! (I am having fun finding out about these wacky food holidays.)
