It's almost a hundred degrees here so I'm throwing together a quick chicken broccoli stir fry.

KQ - 100 degrees??? I only lived in Chicago for about 16 months but the fluctuation in temperature is truly amazing. I live in Atlanta now and it's way cooler here!

Yeah, it's about 97 degrees at 9 PM! Weather is just crazy here, but I'll take the heat over the cold any day!

Last night we cheated and went to Chik-Fil-A. Nice surprise was that it was kid's night, so Little Man's meal was free when we purchased ours, plus ice cream for his dessert.

Tonight it's cooler but I need to do a bit of office work, so we're doing beef tacos from the seasoned ground meat we put in the freezer stash.

I also need to put a dry rub on a pork shoulder that's defrosted and then sear it, so it can go in the crock pot for pulled pork for tomorrow's dinner. I've got Ned Beattys and Bloody Marys on my mind...

Leftover pulled pork with cornbread here. If I get super ambitious, I'll do roasted potatoes and a poached egg with it, for a Ned Beatty.

We're getting the kids cooking this summer, so they helped come up with the menu. DH is also cooking. Here's the plan for the week:

* Pizza bread & salad
* Spaghetti tacos
* Pasta with red sauce & salad
* Rice bowls with edamame, vegetables & veggie egg rolls, Vietnamese sauce/peanut sauce
* Rice & seitan with broccoli & mushrooms

Okay, I have to figure out what we're eating this week, so...

Tonight was rotisserie chicken with green beans and red potato salad.
Tuesday: Salad using tonight's leftovers
Wednesday: Tofu and broccoli stir-fry with rice
Thursday: Something involving Italian sausage and red cabbage
Friday: Homemade pizza and salad

We were supposed to have homemade pizza and salad, too. But after a hot walk I wussed out on turning the oven on and we ended up with takeout pizza instead. Wasn't as good as mine, though

Chicken picadillo served over brown rice. I did not grind the chicken like the recipe says, but cut the breasts into chunks. Do NOT leave out the raisins, they really make the dish! http://www.myrecipes.com/recipe/chic...0000001206204/

No idea what do for dinner tonight... husband is working and Little Man will probably demand (and receive) mac and cheese... It's so hot I just don't feel like cooking at all. I'll probably end up eating a bag of edamame or something.

I fell asleep after a long afternoon at the farmer's market, library, play structure, etc... so the oldest boychild made dinner. Mac & cheese, hot dogs, fresh veggie sticks with ranch for dipping. Not the healthiest meal ever, but not horrible.

I don't know, the fact that he thought to include fresh veggie sticks is fairly impressive. :-)

I made a big batch of pasta salad for lunch/dinner eating. Husband is working tonight, so it'll be more of a graze. It's so humid we caved in and turned on the AC, so I don't feel like doing serious cooking and heating up the house again.

This is true! We just seem to fall on "mac & cheese with hot dogs" as a dinner choice more often than I'd like.

Pasta salad might work today... all the picky eaters are home, so it might also flop, but I am hot and tired enough that easy dinner is really appealing.

Yeah, same here... mac and cheese is apparently one of Little Man's preferred "food groups"...

As it turned out, I wasn't in the mood to eat the same thing for two meals in a row after all, so I made chicken teriyaki noodles for dinner instead.
