Mon. Chipotle BBQ with cilantro lime rice and home made salsa (ok, home made with canned tomatoes. I have 12 tomato bushes and have eaten 2 tomatoes and now have 5 little green ones. I didn't know you had to water them EVERYDAY!!!)
Tues. Creamy Pesto Pasta Salad with green salad. Yes, EVERYTHING Pioneer Woman cooks looks good right now. I just wish she would come to my house and cook it, and clean it up, and tell me stories while I eat.
Wed. Homemade Pizza using fresh veggies from....the market. Oh, my basil is fresh from the garden. We finally found the perfect crust recipe in one of this summers magazines. NO, I can't go downstairs and look it up right now.
Thur. Broccoli quiche with a green salad and some kind of muffin. (On a side note, one August my husband and I were in New Orleans and we ate at La Madeline restaurant. SOOO good, it sealed the deal for me on quiches, muffins, fruit and of course, pastries. I used to have a cook book. Might need to find another one on eBay.)
Fri. Celebrating my dear daughter's 10th b'day and with ALL our family coming over plus a couple, think we will stick to hot dogs, chips, and she requested root beer or cream soda floats. YUMMM!!
Sat. Mama Nell's Macaroni--also a b'day request. Yes, these celebrations go on and on around here.
Sun. Potluck at church. Since we have so much basil I have made batches of pesto, so I will be bringing a Pesto Salad and taking rolls.
That was a little difficult to figure out this week. I may end up scratching it and eating watermelon and ice cream. I think that's kind of like eating a candy bar and drinking diet coke.
I have to finish with this. I think I showed you a picture of some cupcakes I made last week. Here is another one that shows off my piping skills (that is SOO much fun!!)
My 7 year old piped these. Not bad...could we be looking at a mom and daughter business? HMMM!
I have another recipe for Lemonade cupcakes. I get these emails from Hoosier Homemade and they just look so good and easy. Oh, My. Guess I will be giving these out to neighbors.
