MMMM, I have no idea what we're having yet, but now I sure am hungry!

I have some sweet potato/black bean burritos in the freezer. Maybe I'll just pull some of those out and I have watermelon in the fridge....maybe I'll make a diced yellow squash (comin' in bigtime in the garden, lol), cheesey tex-mex type casserole bake w/it. I'm also making my first batch of homemade yogurt in a minute, whenever I get off MDC, rofl!

last night was leftover bbq brisket from Memorial Day, watermelon, chunks of cheese, carrot sticks and some pinto beans.

Tomorrow I think I"m making a grass fed Longhorn beef roast w/carrots, potatoes, and onions in the crockpot.

probabal a broccolli pesto on fava beans and with some chicken.Maybe all of that on soba noodles or spelt elbow macaroni-I've got a huge bulk box of that stuff.

We are getting more fava beans this week from CSA. dd LOVES helping pod and shell them I don't mind at all!

At friends recently, she even shelled some sugar snap peas and then gave them to us to eat.

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

I've never tried it, but I may substitute the broccoli with cauliflower as I forgot we had some leftover from last weeks CSA.I can't wait!

A rice dish from the Sunset Vegetarian cookbook that has cloves, turmeric, cardamom & pepper cooked with the rice. Added to the rice are leeks, shredded carrots, peas, cashews & raisins. I modified it a bit by cooking the rice w/ chicken stock.

Tonight is spaghetti with meatballs (from the freezer) and homemade garlic cheese bread with whole-wheat Italian bread (also from the freezer). Tonight is CSA night and I sure hope we get something fun that I can get creative with this weekend! :

I'm buying groceries today, so no clue.

Wait! Just asked the 2 year old and he said "Pee-zee!" so I guess pizza it is.

Mushrooms, black olives, and feta...

Last night was lasagna with fake meat sauce and homemade wheaty bread. We skipped the salad, as we've been eating a lot of greens and lettuce and both felt the need for some carb-based comfort food. As usual, photos are on turtle's blog.

Last night was a roasted chicken with carrots and potatoes plus a big green salad on the side.

Tonight we're grilling some shrimp and will have those along with a black-eyed pea and corn salad. Probably another big green salad too since we have tons of lettuce and spinach from my friend's garden that needs to be used before it goes bad. Or maybe instead of another salad I'll saute the spinach with some garlic...I'm not sure yet.

Last night was beef in the crockpot- Chinese New Year Crockpot beef. With sides of broccoli and salad.

Tonight is a chicken roasted in the crockpot, raw broccoli, salad, and probably sweet potatoes.

Yes, broccoli and salad two nights in a row. We're staying in a hotel with a small fridge, so everything is repeats and cooked in a crockpot.

Dinner tonight will be Chicken D'Angelo--

sliced up poached chicken breasts (although I may saute them in butter instead) tossed with artichoke hearts, olives, mushrooms, tomatoes and finished off with white wine, garlic and butter. Served over ww pasta. Probably a salad with it. Would be lovely with some pecorino shaved over it!

If I can get to the grocery store, I hope to make a HUGE vegan caesar salad. It's way too hot to cook, and I'm just craving the greens...... and the homemade croutons

We're having asparagus soup and cheesy potatoes--the potatoes are for me, I've had a killer headache the last few days and turtle knows that those will be good for me, even if I can't eat the soup just now.

Well, I put in my Longhorn beef roast yesterday morning and it didnt' get done on low (crockpot), so we ended up having leftover squash casserole and grilled cheese sandwiches (ww bread of course).

Were gonna have the roast tonight (it is gonna be soooooo good and tender!) but dh is coming home early, teen dd is going to a college math/science program for 5 wks and is leaving in the morning so we are letting her pick a nice restaraunt instead. Roast tomorrow! At least I won't have to cook all weekend!
