Weekly Menu and Farmers Market Finds 7/10 - 7/16/11

Whew, last week was a blur. Lots of family was in town so, we cooked for eleven people on the 4th and then twelve people on Wednesday. We kept it all to pretty easy barbecues, but we were still pretty exhausted by the time the weekend came around. I was actually exhausted enough to get sick. That's ok though, it was hot and humid outside, so I relaxed on the couch in the AC watching a Harry Potter marathon preparing for the new movie this week.

We did make it to the farmers market on Sunday, but we didn't need much as we still had a lot from last week.
New Your Strip Steaks - To throw on the grill this week with green beans and potatoes
Cucumbers - I just can't seem to get enough cukes this summer
Shortcakes - How pretty are these little flower shaped cakes from Sun Street Breads? We'll be topping them with strawberries and whipped cream tonight.

It was too hot to eat at the market as we usually do, so we stopped in to try out the breakfast at Corner Table. It's so great to have another great breakfast place in town, especially a place that brings the creativity and quality to breakfast that they do to dinner. Have you tried it yet?

On to Menu Planning Monday...
Kind of a short week of eating at home.

Italian Green Bean Pizza

Grilled New York Strip - A classic meat, veg and potato dinner

Sweet Pea and Tuna Pasta

Thursday we get to go to a screening of the last Harry Potter movie (Thanks Delta Amex!), so we'll be eating out near the theater

Friday we'll be having a barbecue at my cousin's with more family that is in town.

Have you ever tried putting sliced cucumbers in your water? It's unbelievable refreshing on a hot summer's day.
