I'm really excited to cook this week's menu (well some of it I already have over the weekend). Most of it was inspired by the wonderful box we got from our CSA & by what is ripening in our garden.
Here's the first of our beans & peas.
Menu Planning Monday (hmm...I seem to have gone a little heavy on the chicken this week)
Oyster Beef & Bean Stir-Fry - Basically the same recipe I've made before but instead of broccoli I used the first beans from our garden
Grilled Lamb Chops with Fennel Tzatziki with Grilled Zucchini & Couscous - RESULT - Oh, was this ever good. A really fancy looking & tasting meal in no time.
Bbqed Chicken Sandwiches with Rice & Fennel Salad - RESULT - A great summer meal. I like this quick version of a pulled meat sandwich when you don't have time to do pork. The salad was so refreshing.
Roasted Vegetable (beets, fennel & cauliflower) Salad with Foldover Garlic Bread
Grilled Roadside Chicken with Grilled Purple Scallions - From Rick Bayless's Mexican Everyday (Recipes Featured on Season 4 of the PBS-TV series "Mexico One Plate at a Time")
Black Bean, Corn, Chicken & Rice Salad - Using leftovers from the Roadside Chicken
Grilled Chicken Breast with Grilled Tomato Basil Sauce
This week's cupcake flavor will be Strawberry Cheesecake. Since we got the last of the strawberries for the year we'll also have a Strawberry Fool Tart.
