Weekly Menu, August 29-September 2

Big week! A whole lot of reasons to celebrate. First, Grandma arrives tonight, woo-hoo! We are so excited to have her here from Texas. Then, the September birthdays; good reasons to indulge our chocolate cake cravings at last. And this is the last full week the kids are out of school.

Yesterday’s CSA harvest was a fun mix of summer and fall. Three lbs of tomatoes, 2 ½ lbs of squash on one hand, and apples and pears from the fruit share on the other! Not to mention KALE (kale chips on the docket), some gorgeous celery and carrots (we’ll use for pre-dinner snacking), chives, mizuna, garlic.

Weekly Menu:

Sunday:  Pasta with Pesto, Corn and CSA Tomatoes-A-Go-Go. Mizuna salad on the side? Possibly.

Monday: Been obsessed with this lightened up Oyster Po-Boy (the oysters are baked rather than fried, among other tweaks) recipe I saw in the July issue of Martha Stewart Living. Maybe tonight is the night.

Tuesday: Grilled Steak with Greek Salad and Baguette. Greek salad seems the perfect way to use ripe tomatoes!

Wednesday: That ole stand-by Spice-Rubbed Chicken & Vegetable Tacos with Special Slaw.

Thursday: Salmon with Lemon Caper Butter with a Simple Salad and Quinoa

Friday: Birthday dinner. Not sure what it will be but it will involve cake! I have two cakes in my head: one, a delicious two-layer cake with chocolate frosting, maybe like this, and two, this peanut butter chocolate cake (see above) that is way over the top. In case anyone is looking for ideas.

Saturday: Grandma’s Choice. Alma’s? Toby’s? We’ll see.

Happy eating!
