We're having grass fed buffalo burgers with a pickled tomato/basil salad with red wine vinegar dressing, and fruit salad for dessert.

Normal is just a setting on your dryer.

Last night we had poached salmon with homemade aioli, boiled new potatoes with butter and parsley, and sauteed swiss chard.

On the menu tonight is chicken parmesan subs and sauteed squash with pesto. Fruit salad, which my 3-year-old loves to help me make, for dessert.

Tonight will be pork tenderloin and zucchini planks on the grill with crockpot-ed baked beans.

I'm really hungry for potato salad, too... I'll make some, if I have time, and if I can brave that extra bit of heat and humidty.... It helps to prep the potatoes in the microwave, but still.....

I'm *desperate* for chocolate, too.

So desperate that I may make some microwave brownies.



Tomorrow night will probably be a cold "seashell" pasta salad with tuna and veggies in it. (I'll throw it together tonight, when it's a bit cooler outside.)

With that, I'l have hummus and veggies, and cheese and crackers.

MIL cooked tonight so we had pork chops, mashed potatoes, gravy, bread, and salad. It was delicious down-home cooking but ugh...I over ate and I'm soooo stuffed right now.

Tomorrow I'm planning on burritos filled with a black bean and brown rice chili made in the crockpot. We'll have all the fixings too: homemade salsa, avocado, some grated cheese and sour cream.

Stuffed zuccini that I picked fresh from the garden and stuffed with other garden picks including some tomatoes, green onion and pepper. I added some brown rice and some chedder cheese on top. They were delish!

We had a lemon roasted chicken with a wild rice pilaf (from a package, I'm afraid), boiled broccoli, and buttered carrots with summer savory (an herb). Dessert was cubed cantalope.

Unfortunately we ate at 5, and after everyone went to bed (its now 11:30pm), I had a deli turkey sandwich...:

Zuccini from the garden stuffed with all sorts of other good garden stuff like tomatos, onions, peppers, basil mixed with some brown rice and hamburg and topped with chedder cheese. Yummmm.

ETA - Hey I just noticed I had the same thing last time I posted to this thread! You can tell I'm overwhelmed with zuccini in my garden.

Yesterday I made chicken stock for the first time! with whole organicn pasture fed chicken from Trader Joes. SO for lunch I made a chicken/raw cheddar quesadilla with a bit of salt, browned in a pan. With some avacado, tomatoes and salt and lime on top.

For dinner, who knows? Maybe a curry? Or a mole?

I just have to sy, it is THE best chicken I have ever made. It tastes so good slow cooked all day. Last night we had potato leek soup made with some of the broth

Due with number 5 in August. We do all that crunchy stuff.

Yup, finally cooler here too. Phew! Tonight I am trying the infamous honey-baked lentils in the crockpot, and will probably serve it with some brown rice and (you guessed it) salad. I also took out some frozen chicken-and-dumplings filling for DP, in case he doesn't like/want the lentils.

I've been really craving the taste of the lentil soup w/Italian sausage and mustard greens, but I haven't been feeling like soup, so tonight I'm going to make those elements into a thick sauté, and serve that over brown rice.

Probably with salad, since I have a little chunk of delightful aged gouda to grate onto it, and the grape tomatoes are turning red, finally.

I may make peach cobbler for dessert, or a rustic peach tart..... and an extra for a potluck tomorrow night....

I made a big macaroni salad with tuna, peas, eggs, and onions in it. We'll eat it for dinner tonight too. I also made a few extra hard boiled eggs. We'll have raw baby carrotts too, and fresh fruit for dessert.

I put a chuck roast in the crockpot with a bit of water, then added some mole to it.

i hope it turns out ok:

I actually made the mole from scratch. I have made it before, but always slightly different.
