Whats for dinner this week?

Greetings all. Just got back from the Farmers Market and Wild Oats. Oh, and a nice tour of Nashville as my friend looked for Whole Foods ~ LOL Had a great time and I am so blessed that she is adventurous enough for the both of us to drive in Nashville!

Managed to snag a few good deals, like the end of the season asparagus. Oh, and pea pod snacks were on sale! My twins ADORE them. I was left however with a longing for a rain barrel. Both Wild Oats and Whole Foods had these nice resin (forget how many gallons) rain barrels (20 gallons?). They have mesh lids to keep out bugs and a spicket to hook your hose up to at the bottom of the barrel. Only $99 and it could be mine................. Other big news, Trader Joe's is coming to Nashville............ soon? Can't wait! Sounds like another adventure for Thelma (me) and Louise (bff)!

Dinner this week of June 7th ~ 13th

Saturday: Home made pizza w/ salad and watermelon (found some nitrate free pepperoni at Wild Oats!)

Sunday: Creamy mushroom pork chops w/mashed potatoes and steamed carrots

Monday: Slow cooker Alphabet Soup w/ home made garlic bread sticks

Tuesday: Asian plum chicken w/ noodles and steamed asparagus

Wednesday: Church (but no dinner until fall) B.B.Q. Beef w/corn salad and slow cooker baked potatoes

Thursday: Paprika chicken w/brown rice and green beans

Friday: Harvest chili w/cheddar biscuits

Other cooking this week includes but is not limited to, egg plant bacon, home made hummus, home made tortillas, home made ranch dressing and pecan date bars.

So whats for dinner at your house this week?

Blessings, Beth Ann

YUM! Your dinners sound so good. When it's so hot out, I fail miserably at cooking. I don't make a schedule like I normally do and we do just about everything on the grill. I can't stand to turn on the oven!!!

The Asian plum chicken, slow cooker baked potatoes, and pecan date bars sound especially good!

Is the Paprika Chicken a Campbell's recipe because I make that occasionally too.

Oh and to answer your question, tonight we're having my delicious organic BBQ pork ribs on the grill, salad, and a past side. Easy, delicious, and no oven required! ;)

My chicken paprika is from a recipe I have had kicking around awhile.

I really recomend the date pecan bars. They are from my raw cooking book, from Hallelujah Acres by George Malkmus. Just alot of organic raw ingredients, a food processor and no cooking! I will try to post a pic when I get them made.
