This week I’m using the bounty of my garden to make dinner. Don’t worry, there is a lot of meat involved too. We like veggies but I am such a carnivore! Our zucchini are still going crazy and the tomatoes are not far behind. And my raised bed herbs are at their peak and just gorgeous! Do you need dinner ideas? I have a whole week’s worth! Here’s what is on the menu this week!

We love BBQ chicken on the grill. And the best way to make it is with what I call MAGIC RUG. It’s a rub that I make in big batches and use all summer long. It is great on any kind of meat and fish! If you make one thing this week, make the magic rug!
This week’s Tex Mex dinner is scrumptious and easy Quesadillas! They are so so easy to make. I always make more for lunches the next day. LOVE this recipe from JoCooks.
- CHICKEN QUESADILLAS
- REFRIED BEANS
- GARDEN TOMATOES
I’m so into SHEET PAN DINNER! The idea is to cook everything on one sheet pan. So so easy! Today I’m sharing an easy, healthy and delicious meal from Chelsea’s Messy Apron. It has a video that shows you how to put together this dinner! Amazing!
I make two chickens at least twice a month. We eat it as is for one meal and I save the rest of the chicken meat for lunches and dinners and the carcasses for chicken stock. Oh yum! We love this. I’ll stuff the cavities with garlic and garden herbs this time and omit the lemon.
- PERFECT ROAST CHICKEN
- ROASTED ROOT VEGETABLES AROUND THE CHICKEN
THURSDAY- SLOW COOKER DAY
Corn is at its peak right now in Lancaster County. And it is scrumptious! I’m trying this slow cooker recipe from a new-to-me blog called Damn Delicious.
Instead of using frozen corn I’ll grill fresh corn and take it off the cob. Goodness!!!!
- CHICKEN AND CORN CHOWDER
- SLICED GARDEN TOMATOES
My Mom loves fish tacos so I like to make them when she comes for dinner. These fish tacos are so so delicious and colorful.
These darling little tomato pies use the best of my garden, cherry tomatoes, and puff pastry. Such an amazing summery combination! I think puff pastry is so easy to work with and makes a dish extra good. Use puff pastry that is made with butter and not oil. It’s more expensive but it tastes so much better. I get mine a Wegman’s (the Wegman’s brand).
THIS WEEK’S TEAT…
If zucchini were worth their weight in gold, I’d be a zillionaire! Our zucchini are riotous and out of hand! So I am freezing zucchini to use the rest of the year.
