Ah, summer! Our menu reflects what’s growing locally! Tomatoes, corn, zucchini, tons of fresh herbs and more! Life is in full summer swing here at StoneGable and we are eating lots of seasonal fruits and veggies. Here’s what’s on the menu…
We can now get garden tomatoes in our area! And that means they will be showing up A LOT on the menu. I don’t eat tomatoes all year until I can get them locally and then I go crazy! I think there is nothing like a fresh local tomato! Oh, yum!
Lots of good eats this week…
Grilled chicken is on tonight’s menu. The best way to grill BBQ chicken is with a BBQ rub. A rub doesn’t burn like BBQ sauce and does not drip off! I have a rub that is magical! No wonder it’s known as Magic Rub!!!!! I make a bunch and keep it in the pantry!
If you make one thing this week, make it a batch of Magic Rub! Use it on chicken, beef, pork, and fish. Even veggies taste better when they’ve been dipped in a bit of Magic Rub and grilled to perfection!

The grill master at our house is Bobby! So tonight he will be putting a couple well-marinaded pork tenderloins on his grill. And the leftovers will be add-ins to salads at lunch!
Even if you are counting points, like me, you can have pasta. This pasta recipe from My Crazy Good Life is amazing! Thanks, Becca for giving us the Instant Pot, Slow Cooker and Stove Top version of this yummy recipe.
I love finding recipes and foodie blogs that are beautiful! And Little Broken is both! Thanks, Katya for this gorgeous, fresh recipe!

SATURDAY- FAMILY DINNER NIGHT
When family and friends come for dinner during the warmer seasons here at StoneGable we are all about grilling great food and dining al fresco! Tonight’s dinner is a marinated flank steak with one of my favorite summery no-cook sauces! Thanks, Jocely at Grandbaby Cakes.
When the family is here we eat a big breakfast. Everyone pitches in to get the food on the table. I’ll be up early to make the breakfast cake myself.
If you are feeding a small crowd, a frittata is a FABULOUS choice for breakfast! I usually add any veggies we have on hand. This frittata will have mushrooms, asparagus, onion, red peppers and herbs from the garden. I make it in a cast iron skillet and serve it in wedged! Anderson (2 1/2 and Alexander 11 months) love breakfast!
TREAT OF THE WEEK
I’m making a couple batches for a little something sweet this weekend. I’m not much of a baker but love to make cookies!
A homemade chocolate chip cookie (regular size) is only 3 points. I’ll be treating myself a couple times this week for sure!
Have a scrumptious week, friends!
