Tuna here too. There's only one tuna fillet though, so I'm going to cook it up and serve it in a salad with white beans, greens, fresh parsley, and a lemon vinaigrette.

Yum. I love this thread. Tonight is a veggie feast (from our two CSA baskets) peas, carrots, and spring onions sauteed in butter with some tarragon, roasted beets in a vinegrette, braised kohlrabi, sauteed beet greens, and a spinach salad with candied pecans and feta. Oh and some bread with farm gouda melted on it.

I decided we're having breakfast for supper. Turkey bacon, scrambled eggs, and yellow squash shredded into whole grain pancakes. Gotta, gotta, gotta use up that squash! Last year we had 32 zucc/yellow squash plants. Too much! This year, only 6 plants, but that's turning out to be too much, too! :

Friday was pizza and salad
Saturday we went to a cookout at SIL's, so burgers/dogs and beans THAT'S IT...no veggies. UGH!
Last night was BBQ chicken, peanut thai noodles and peas (I had some veggie soup instead of chicken).
Tonight is Cajun brats on the grill, leftover peanut thai noodles and salad.

I just made this eggplant curry and it is YUMMY!

1 large eggplant
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 teaspoon cumin seeds
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon ginger garlic paste
1 tablespoon curry powder
1 tomato, diced
1/2 cup plain yogurt
1 fresh jalapeno chile pepper, finely chopped
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 bunch cilantro, finely chopped


DIRECTIONS:
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).
Place eggplant on a medium baking sheet. Bake 20 to 30 minutes in the preheated oven, until tender. Remove from heat, cool, peel, and chop.
Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Mix in cumin seeds and onion. Cook and stir until onion is tender.
Mix ginger garlic paste, curry powder, and tomato into the saucepan, and cook about 1 minute. Stir in yogurt. Mix in eggplant and jalapeno pepper, and season with salt. Cover, and cook 10 minutes over high heat. Remove cover, reduce heat to low, and continue cooking about 5 minutes. Garnish with cilantro to serve.

Last night was a root vegetable gratin with lots of Swiss cheese, arugula and apple salad with pecans, and.... cornbread, which totally doesn't "go," but I was hungry for it.

Tonight will be homemade spaghetti sauce on store-bought pasta.
There will be salad, and garlic bread (homemade if there's enough bread flour, store bought if there's not).

For dessert, I'm thinking carrot-pineapple muffins with cream cheese frosting.....

I REALLY need to go to the grocery store, so I've had to dig in the pantry/freezer to find anything that could be thrown together for a meal. As a result, last night we had all-natural fish sticks (frozen from Trader Joe's), sweet corn, baked beans and sugar snap peas picked from the garden earlier in the day.

I have a sad looking little butternut squash that really needs to be used, so tonight we'll have Pasta with Squash and Bacon with just a simple salad on the side. The pasta is one of ds's favorite meals.

In the meantime, I *HAVE* to get to the store!

Last night we snacked on cold chicken, carrot sticks, and strawberries and cherries.

Tonight I'll make a huge salad and add leftover chicken and some red grapes and boiled eggs. Maybe some cheese and sunflower seeds, too. I need protein! Too hot to cook!!!!

Lunch is leftover casserole, with an afternoon snack of carrots and this mango chutney mayo dip I made. Very tasty!

Tonight, we're going to the children's choir picnic--potluck and since it's CSA season, we're bringing a Huge Salad.

mexican corn cakes (like tortillas only MUCH better!!)

1 1/2 c masa harina (mexican corn flour)
1/2 c all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 c grated cotija cheese
2 c coarsley chopped fresh or frozen corn kernels
1 c warm water
oil for pan

mix masa harina, flour, b powder, salt. stir in cheese, corn. add water 1/4 c at time stirring (I mix it w/ my hands to get a feel as to how much water is needed) until mixtures holds together.

heat cast iron skillet medium heat. make mixture into patties about 1/3 in thick - makes "about" 8 corn cakes.

fry (little oil on pan) until golden and turn once.

I'll get back w/ you on the ww french loaf.... hahaha I cant find the recipe so it might not be happening over here

cotija also known as queso anejado is a crumbly aged white cheese - I suppose parmasean would work also.

Thanks, Pixie!

They sound deitylike!

Are they like torrejas?

If so, I am already in love!
(I've been looking for a recipe for torrejas for a long, sad time....)

I want to get in on this too...

Last night I went to my 1st prenatal yoga class so dinner was a quick ww spagetti with jarred sauce & veggie italian sausage.

Tonight I am attempting a new recipe. It's potato curry & I am praying that it is good. I LOVE potato curries, but I've never made one. I think I will add some peas & carrots to it as well. We will also have some veggies, ww pita & hummus for dip. DS will probably have left over spagetti
