We altered our menu plan a little bit based on what was ripening in the garden. This week will probably be the same way!
Sunday~ Five Guys Burgers. Mmmmm.
Monday~ Chicken Bacon Ranch Salad. A long name for a delicious salad! I used leftover smoked chicken in the recipe. This was very tasty, but did not keep well for the next day. When I make it again, I will keep the components separate and assemble just enough for that meal. The avocado lime dressing was DELICIOUS!
Wednesday~ Meatball casserole. Unless the eggplant in the garden are ready. At which point we will have eggplant parmesan! I did make meatballs but I also made eggplant parmesan. And it was delicious!!!
Thursday~ Antipasto Salad
Saturday~ Hubs & I are celebrating 22 years of marriage. We're going out to fondue!
So this week, there will probably be some of the same adjustments....
Sunday~ Beef on the grill. Tomato basil salad (like a caprese salad) using up some of the basil and cherry tomatoes that are ripening, roasted baby potatoes, grilled zucchini. Yum!
Monday~ Burgers on the grill, chips, jalapeño poppers (they are exploding in the garden!), grilled pineapple. I keep the poppers pretty mild by seeding and removing all the ribs inside the peppers. My teenager LOVES these. We're having dinner guests. Fun times!
Wednesday~ Eggplant pie (slices of eggplant as the base, topped with various veggies, sprinkled with cheese, baked in the oven), spaghetti for the non-veggie lovers :)
Thursday~ Leaving this open for leftovers or dinner out.
Friday~ My sister & I have a date with our dad to celebrate Father's Day. My guys will fend for themselves.
Saturday~ Marine Son & his family are flying home... to stay! We will meet them at the airport then go to Olive Garden to celebrate their arrival.
So... what summertime delicacies are you enjoying? Share at Menu Plan Monday!
