Menu and Weekly Job Plans: August 4-9
Now doesn't that look like a perfect summer day? I do love a good picnic, but I've no idea when we'll get to have another. I must wait for a bit until things settle down around us. In the meantime, we'll maybe get a meal on the patio or back porch if the pleasant weather holds.
John's already mentioned a favorite meal he'd like to have, I tried a new recipe today while I was on my own and that just leaves me a few more to plan.
Buttered Peaches and Ravioli, Green Salad, Crusty Bread
Yep, that's a brand new recipe. I'll share that one here shortly along with my review of it.
Tuna Pasta Salad, Saltines, Peach Dumpling
A cool and easy meal, full of good vegetables and refreshing. I find a warm dessert is always nice following a cold meal.
Quiche, Green Beans Almondine, Rosemary Roasted Potatoes, Ambrosia
And a nice cool fruit dessert to follow a warm meal...it's all about balance.
Stuffed Peppers, Mashed Potatoes, Butter Beans, Fresh Fruit Compote
I never got to make the Stuffed Peppers a few weeks ago. Now that meat is short, I need a nice stretcher meal such as this one. I've had trouble of late when making stuffed peppers that my rice remains hard. I will parboil it and let cool before mixing with my meat.
Southwestern Chicken Salad, Pico de Gallo, Tortilla Chips, Pineapple Sherbert
I'll use corn and black beans in the salad along with sliced fried chicken cutlets. I think I'll make Ranch Dressing for the salad.
Corn and Cheese Enchiladas, Southwestern Cabbage Salad, Chocolate Pudding
The burritos will be made up of leftover corn. The southwestern salad is red and green cabbage, carrot strips and red pepper strips in a cumin and garlic seasoned vinaigrette.
Roast Beef, Italian Roasted Vegetables, Wedge Salads
I figure we'll surely have a plethora of fresh vegetables by end of the week once we've done our grocery shopping, so a good time to plan my favorite roasted vegetable dish. Now if I can just remember I want to make extra roasted vegetables for a meal first part of next week.
Plan and shop for groceries, run errands, etc. I expect this one to be an all day thing.

Go to Meat Market. This will be a 1/2 day affair as Mama is going with us and besides the long drive there will be lunch out somewhere plus putting meat away when we get home.
