Well, we need a new thread, it's JULY! Can you believe it?

Anyone have special plans for the 4th?

Our big plans for the 4th are roasting 1/2 a pig. I raised 3 pigs this winter and we saved half of one for a pig roast. There will be tons of people, tons of food and it'll be so much fun!

July really snuck up on me, so no plans for the 4th yet. I think the kids and I will be at my mom's, so we'll probably do take out or some special treat. Over the weekend we'll probably grill, if we're not invited to any BBQs.

Tonight's dinner is beef-and-snow-pea stir fry with rice. I'll do up some tofu for DP too.

Tonight is beer can chicken on the grill with corn on the cob and salad with homemade dressing. I just started making my dressing and it is so much better. We have no plans yet for the 4th. We are still deciding what to eat. Maybe out since we will go to st. augustine for the fireworks.

I made Skillet Macaroni and Ground beef (pasta, pesto, tomato, ground beef and mozz cheese on top), steamed corn, and texas toast.

Dh says he is grilling "country style" pork ribs for 4th of July. I will make the sides. I am sure we will take dc to the fireworks show downtown.

Chicken noodles? Recipe? Yum.

Tonight was lamb chops with couscous with sauteed peppers, onions and broccoli. Dessert was a sweet canteloupe. I'm making myself hungry, off to find a snack.

I need to get planning for the rest of the week - no big plans for Independence Day.

I have swiss chard from our CSA to use up before the next installment comes tomorrow night. I'll probably put it on top of quinoa with tahini sauce.

Tonight will be a boring crock pot layered casserole. I have a midwife appt across town at 4 and then I won't have to stress about dinner if I don't get seen until 5 or stuck in traffic. Both of which happen frequently.

Chicken with 40 Cloves of Garlic tonight. Ds suggested mac and cheese, which might actually make a good combo. Probably a salad, too.

Last night we had a sort of potluck with my parents. We brought roast, potatoes, carrots, and green beans.

Tonight we're having spaghetti, corn, salad, and rolls. I've already made the spaghetti sauce, so not much left to do. :

Tonight was supposed to be leftovers, but the only ones we have is a casserole my boys hated. So I'll probably make them quesadillas, have the casserole myself and who knows what dh will eat when he gets home.

I did tacos with mexican rice tonight - was wonderful! The rice took a LOT longer than i thought it would though... not sure what that was all about, but it worked out in the end. Tommorrow we're going up to canton to have dinner with the family - bratwurst and such

It was low key around here today, so I just did a simple pork roast with onions and sage, baked potatoes and red cabbage. Cake for dessert.

Yesterday we had ribs, mac n cheese, potato salad, (both homemade), and amy's veg baked beans. Oh and my mom made deviled eggs, too. It was really good. Actually we made it Thursday and had leftovers yesterday from it. Tonight I'm not sure yet. We are going to lunch at a Mexican restaurant depending on what time the kids nap that may be early or late so dinner will be very light if it's late.

Hmmm, well we are having left over rib tips for lunch and something with ground beef for dinner, lol.

Tomorrow is beef (well actually venison) stew & Tuesday will be grilled bbq chicken legs and thighs. We are having a clean out the freezer & pantry marathon due to the budget :-)
