What's for dinner this week?

Greetings all! It's the start of another new week, the second in July! Hard to believe isn't it. Next thing you know it will be time for us to go on our annual vacation to South Carolina coast - yeah! It's the only thing I ask for every year for my birthday and Christmas gift. We go on the week of my birthday, in October. So like 15 more weeks, not like I'm counting or anything ~ LOL Well we are starting to see the fruits of our labor in our garden. Our beans and tomatoes are starting to come in. I am getting more peppers and radishes. Soon the turnips and okra will be ready. We have an abundance of pumpkins starting as well as decorative gourds. I only have one or two watermelon and cantaloupe plants, but should be enough. I can hardly wait for the eggplant and cucumbers! Can you tell we are excited? The kids seem to be really getting into it this year as well. My oldest ds, who is going to be a veterinarian, wants to have a farm for rescued animals and is learning much so he can grow his own food as well. I really love summer and hope your enjoying yours as well. Here is what we are having this week:

Monday: Italian baked chicken w/herbed pasta and salad

Tuesday: Sirloin Fajitas w/coleslaw

Wednesday: Peanut butter and jelly (made with the fresh blue berries I picked and made into preserves) french toast with home fries

Thursday: Eggplant & rice casserole w/ baked white fish

Friday: Chicken tetrazzini w/ steamed broccoli

Saturday: Home made pizza w/salad

Sunday: Applesauce meatballs on rice with mixed veggies

Blessings, Beth Ann

I love your pink blog! As the mom of three boys, there just isn't enough pink in my world. Also love your menu ideas, totally doable, but different! Thanks for sharing.
