Weekly Menu 7/12 - 7/18/08

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.
#192 - First of the beans & peas
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.

Nice weekly menu - I commend your energy. The beans look fabulous - I don't think there are many things more special than picking from your garden. Deeeelightful.

Hmmm. roadside chicken. Sounds pretty cool, plus it's a recipe from Bayless? Thanks for all the ideas.
