Here's what we got this week...
Eggs - most were hard boiled & turned into deviled eggs for the 4th.
Strawberries - for a Creamy Strawberry Pie I'll share tomorrow
Broccoli - for the relish tray yesterday
Salad Greens - those will go with fajitas tomorrow
Beets - my dad asked for beet donuts this week
IPA Brat Buns - we bought out all Sun Street Breads had for the 4th
Love Tree Farm's Gabrielson Lake Cheese - on the Best Local Foods List
Vanilla Bean Macaroons
The only down point to the day was Matt ended up in splint with what looks like a broken wrist from a fall two weeks ago.
Yes, it took us two weeks to have it looked at. Today we'll see whether he needs surgery or just a cast. The poor guy is having a time learning how to do everything with his left hand.
Our backyard was full of lots of family and friends for the Fourth. We had a pretty classic midwestern BBQ menu, cole slaw, deviled eggs, homemade baked beans, Wisconsin brats, hotdogs, ice cream and pie. Of course, there were also sparklers and fireworks.
Finally, on to Menu Planning Monday (um, Tuesday)...
Green bean and leftover steak stir-fry
Salmon Fajitas for twelve - also chicken fajitas for the non-fish eaters
Gabrielson Lake Cheeseburgers with roasted potatoes
Think we'll eat out on Friday
Rotisserie Chicken which will leave us with lots of good leftovers.
