It looks like we’ll actually be at home for most meals this coming week. That’s a switch! I’m looking forward to incorporating all the lovely summer fruits and veggies coming into season. And we have a brand new grill which I plan to use regularly in the weeks to come. Let’s take a peek at what’s on our menu for the coming week.
I used to do Meatless Monday most weeks and would like to get back to that.
- Macaroni and cheese with caramelized onions
- tossed green salad
- glazed carrots
I have an afternoon hair appointment. It’s always nice to come home to a slow cooker meal when I’ve spent the afternoon in town. I didn’t end up making the Swiss steak last week so I think this will be a good day for it.
- Busy Day Swiss Steak
- baked cauliflower
My daughter and I will be in the city all day doing our monthly grocery shop. Keep an eye out later this week for a grocery haul post!
I love doing an occasional summer meal of all veggies. After our visit to Whole Foods on Wednesday I’ll be well-stocked on seasonal produce so this is a good day for it.
- corn on the cob
- potato, peppers, onion, squash medley
- French bread
- grilled chicken with homemade barbecue sauce
- baked potatoes
- green beans
- fresh fruit
We are meeting up with the kids in Norman for lunch to celebrate David’s birthday (belated) and Father’s Day. That will be our main meal of the day so we’ll likely just make sandwiches or something light for dinner.
We have Music in the Park every Sunday evening throughout the summer. There are food trucks, too, so we’ll just grab tacos or something.
What’s cooking at YOUR house this week? What is your favorite summer vegetable and favorite summer fruit? Mine are corn on the cob (or maybe fresh green beans cooked with bacon and onion) and peaches. YUM!
