Hope everyone had a great Fourth of July! The menu is a day late because we haven’t been around. We were out in Connecticut, enjoying pool time a-go-go, a great boat ride on Cinnamon Girl, and terrific food and company (thanks M&D!).
As we drove back to the City this afternoon (no traffic, hooray!), the thermometer in the car kept climbing. When we hit Queens, we also hit 101 F. Oh yeah. Accuweather posted a red thermometer instead of a sun. The “real feel” is forecasted to be over 100 F all week!
So it’s all about the grill and the microwave, minimal effort and maximum shade. The window units are cranking (short prayer for the power to hold).
Monday: Pizza on the Grill (Asparagus & Goat Cheese for Melisa & I, cheese for the kids) with shredded Red-Leaf Lettuce Salad from the CSA
Tuesday: Grilled Chicken Breasts Marinated in Spiced Yogurt with Tzatziki, Blistered Squash (CSA!) and Toasted Pita
Wednesday: Grilled Corn and Shrimp Tacos with Homemade Salsa and Lime Slaw
Thursday: Saté Chicken Salad (we got a head of cabbage from the CSA this week)
Friday: Grilled Bone-in Rib-Eye Steaks & Zucchini, Corn on the Cob with Parmesan and Cilantro
Saturday: I don’t know. We may have to eat out. But possibly Big Burgers all Around!
