Weekly Menu, May 29-June 4


Hope everyone is having a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!

Summer has officially arrived in New York, with sunny days, and the traditional uptick in temperature; seems like just yesterday it was 60 degrees, now it’s 90.  This transition is accompanied, per usual, by my seasonal musing on why we didn’t put in central A.C. while we had a chance. Alas. Part of the weekend’s festivities include wrestling the window units back in place.  Real feel is 100 tomorrow! I might be taking a dip in the kiddie pool.

Still, can’t complain after the winter we had.

Even Spidey didn't know what to do.

All to say that grilling season is now in full swing. Anything not to turn on the oven. See below.

Weekly Menu:

Sunday:  Dinner out, yippee! Momofuku Ssam Bar with Scott & Katie and then…Bob Schneider at the Bowery Ballroom! His new album, as you know, has been swirling in my head for a month.

Monday: Toby’s graduation party! How can he be out of college? Seems like he was just ten yesterday. Looking forward to Coca-Cola Ham

Tuesday: Grilled Fish Tacos and Cilantro Slaw

Wednesday: Spaghetti with Pecorino & Pepper with some sort of salad

Thursday: Grilled Shrimp Quesadillas with Homemade Tomato Avocado Salsa

Friday: Was going to grill a rack of lamb, but have you noticed lamb is $28/lb? So, instead…Greek Grilled Chicken with Yogurt Mint Sauce and Grilled Corn

Saturday: Trying Gwynnie’s Grilled Halibut with Mango Avocado Salsa from the June Bon App

    thanks for the inspiration, ended up making gywinnies mango avocado salsa with swordfish (fairway didn’t have halibut) for a memorial day bbq and it was a hit.
