Lemon, garlic and oregano marinated chicken on the grill, with baby new potatoes from the stand up the road and homemade cole slaw. Awesome on a hot summer day. :

I want to grill flank steak (I have in marinating in the freezer) and potatoes, but a) it's supposed to rain; and b) we don't have any charcoal. So I might broil it instead, or I might just come up with something else...but what? I'm tired of making meals out of nothing. We had a disappointing CSA box this week and not a lot of food in the house, despite having gone to the store three times last week. How does that happen? I guess I gotta get creative...

Baked chicken, sweet potatoes, and onion rings. It was supposed to be zucchini & squash instead of the onion rings but I dropped the whole pan into the oven when I was trying to put it in! Really made me mad as I paid $4 for that organic produce! (only 1 squash and 1 zucchini!)

We are planning spaghetti tonight. Probably with a salad. There are lots of veggies in my sauce so I don't usually serve it with veggies.

Tonight it's going to be a sort of smorgasbord of fresh local veggies: salad with homemade blue cheese dressing, tomato, carrot, cucumber, peas. I'm also making sauteed summer squash and zucchini, sauteed beets and beet greens, a basil and tomato salad, a cucumber salad, and maybe some kind of potatoes.

Whole-wheat pasta with a creamy green sauce (spinach, basil, ricotta cheese, a little milk, garlic greens, salt and pepper), sauteed zucchini, maybe some peas. An entirely green meal, and it's all local veggies too. Wow. Lookit me.
