Weekly Menu 7/31 - 8/5


I can't believe its practically August. Summer is almost over and I'm not even tan! I do have two upcoming vacations planned so hopefully I can at least get a bit more color before fall arrives.

It never fails that by August, when its extraordinarily hot and humid outside I get tired of making summer type recipes. I'm tired of hot dogs, burgers, grilled chicken and salads. I'm ready to start making soups and stews. I've been patiently waiting for a less humid day so I can at least make crab soup. Hopefully August will cooperate with me.

One of my college classes has started and I found out that we can work at our own pace, which is great. I'm going to try to get a huge head start on this class so I'll be more than prepared for my other class that starts at the end of August.

I have to admit that the menu has another repeat. I really want to make the scallops over pasta with the green bean salad but it just doesn't seem to happen from week to week. So once again, I've included it on the menu and I'm crossing my fingers it actually comes through!

Sunday- Filet with a red wine reduction, cheesy risotto and green beans

Monday - mac and cheese

Tuesday - pancakes and bacon

Wednesday - scallops over pasta with sesame green beans

Thursday - pork with bacon and brown sugar glaze with mashed potatoes and corn

Friday - pizza

This weekend I'm baking a roasted peach crisp and pink lemonade cupcakes. I'm also making a peach sorbet.
