As I type this I am sadly noting the end of a great summer. I was thinking earlier this evening while putting the kids to bed that this summer can simply be summarized as perfect (to this point and hoping this week doesn’t screw things up). We have had two great weeks of holiday with good friends and lots of amazing times in between with family and friends. The summer has simply been perfect!
The meal plan for this week is….
This was a really simple recipe that I put together with fresh ingredients from the garden, this was our first substantial harvest of cherry tomatoes, and well there always is alot of oregano, so that was tossed in there too, and I have been craving sun dried tomatoes, since I stare at a jar of it in my pantry daily. Toss about 4-6 cups of pasta, with 1/2 cup of feta cheese, 1/4 cup of sun dried tomato, 1 cup quartered black cherry tomatoes, 2 tbsp fresh oregano, one clove of minced garlic. That’s it, and maybe some olive oil, to prevent the pasta from sticking and mmm mmm enjoy!
Morrocan chicken with couscous and grilled pita (this sounds delicious and fast from epicurious)
Slow-Cooker Tri-Tip Beef Mole (this recipe is a combination of the Chicken Mole recipe from Canadian Living and it’s Food Blog’s beef version, and it sounds like it might not be as fast I as I would like, so I am going to see if I can make the mole the day before and then throw it all in the slowcooker)
San francisco Garlic Fries and veggie burgers (need to find a good recipe here)
Grilled Chicken Taco Pizza‘s (has been a while since I did this recipe and I can’t wait, I do love it!)
Blackberry buttermilk Cake (this is for my mom’s bday, and I have accidentally acquired 2L of buttermilk that will not be fresh much longer that need to be consumed)
The last day of summer vacation….maybe we’ll go out, not sure yet.
