By now the sun is blistering and hot and the outside air so thick with humidity that my windows are a little steamed up from the air conditioning inside! To keep a case of “ennui” away I try to keep busy in the cool house and venture outside early in the morning or later in the evening! And when I can be in the water… SPLASH! How about you? What is your best way to beat summer heat? Now let’s see what great summer dishes are on the menu this week!
I’m a huge fan of Salmon. And it’s so good for us too! I think you will love this easy and scrumptious recipe
- MAYONNAISE CRUSTED BAKED SALMON
- GRILLED ASPARAGUS
- TOMATOES, FRESH MOZZARELLA, AND BASIL SALAD
I do love a good casserole. And this Spinach Ravioli Lasagna looks amazing. I have homemade frozen PESTO and will use it instead of jarred. Also, I’ll whip up my own Alfredo sauce. It’s easy and nothing in it I don’t know about.
It’s been so hot and muggy and now rainy here at StoneGable that we have not grilled yet this week. But tonight we are grilling this scrumptious kabob. I must admit I’m not a fan of lots of veggies on kabobs because they don’t always cook evenly. But pineapple and bacon… yes, please! Fabulous recipe from Bread With A Side Of Butter!
We had a scrumptious marinated flank steak last week and we made two. So I have one waiting for an easy peasy fajita dinner. We LOVE fajitas! I could eat them breakfast, lunch, and dinner! You can see my favorite “Killer Fajita” recipe HERE.
- MARINADED FLANK STEAK FAJITAS
- OVEN BAKED REFRIED BEANS WITH CHEDDAR CHEESE
- TOMATO SALAD
THURSDAY- SOUP DAY
There is soooo much to love about tonight’s soup. First of all, you had me at ONE POT! And I love anything that is creamy. And it includes beans, ham, and tortellini. Oh, my yumminess! Can it get better? I think not! Wonderful recipe from Carlsbad Cravings!
- ONE POT CREAMY WHITE BEAN AND HAM, TORTELLINI SOUP
- CRUSTY BREAD
- SLICED GARDEN TOMATOES
If you make one thing this week these veggies are it! They are amazing! Great hot or cold.
- HAMBURGERS ON THE GRILL
- GRILLED VEGGIES WITH BALSAMIC DRESSING
This is one of my son’s very favorite comfort foods. We made a double batch and eat it again for lunch on Sunday! YUM!
- CHRISTOPHER’S SHEPHERD PIE
- TOSSED SALAD
TREAT OF THE WEEK
This recipe is scrumptious! So full of tart/sweet flavor. Serve it with vanilla ice cream!
