I can't believe it going to be July already this week!

Here's this week's Menu Planning Monday
Grilled Fennel Pork Tenderloin - RESULT - Good the first night even better as sandwiches the next day.
Chipotle Chicken Pasta Salad - From Mr. Orph's Kitchen - RESULT - Spicy from the chipotle yet cool & creamy from the avocado & ranch dressing.
Coffee Burgers - We sampled some burgers made with the Coffee & Spice Rub at William Sonoma & liked it so much we bought some of the rub.
Whole-Wheat Linguine with Green Beans, Ricotta & Lemon - A wonderful light & healthy pasta.
Then like good Minnesotans we'll be heading up North to the lake for the 4th where we are looking forward to a fish fry with fresh caught Walleye. Let's hope the fishing gods are good to my Dad.
This week's cupcake flavor will be Bomb Pop. The perfect colors for the 4th. - Result - Due to problems finding cherry flavoring I went with a vanilla flavored Red, White & Blue cupcake instead.
Also this week we'll be talking about Carolina Pulled Pork, Rustic Cherry Pie & more ways to use my favorite Fragrant Chile Rub.
