Menu Plan Monday

This week is full of so many good things to eat! I'm having trouble deciding which ones to eat first. I love, love, love this time of year with the garden. We have tomatoes covering every surface in the kitchen. And huge plants of basil. Cucumbers still producing, as well as a few squash. We have these crazy huge tomatillos that are almost scary!

The eggplant aren't terribly prolific this year, but I'm out sweet talking them every evening. And, the chard is back! It doesn't like the very, very hot weather of late July, but it's decided to return for the fall. All in all, I'm thrilled with what Mike is producing for us.

And, as a bonus, he ordered a few extra seeds for the fall garden that he promises to plant this week. Cauliflower here we come!

As always, I plan Friday to Thursday. Don't ask me why. It's just the way it is.

Friday--take out Little Ceasar's pizza (and boy was it good!)

Saturday--macaroni and cheese (lunch), purple hull and corn salad, catfish creole over rice, blackberries (supper)

Sunday--leftovers (lunch), chard with raisins and pecans, roasted fingerling potatoes, papaya squash, fried eggplant, corn on the cob (supper)

Monday--gumbo, potato salad

Tuesday--tomato pie

Wednesday--enchiladas with green sauce, beans, some sort of salsa (probably with pineapple tomatoes)

Thursday--chili rellenos, beans, salsa

As always, there are lots more menu plans over at orgjunkie! Hundreds of bloggers contribute every week. There is always something new to intrigue you.
