Menu Plan Monday - Week of August 19, 2012

Homemade French Bread!  Don't they look lovely?

We have been so very blessed this summer by our CSA.  We have a wonderful friend who owns and runs a small CSA so we purchased a share and we have been so very blessed by her generosity and her hard work. We collect our share on Fridays. This last share we received a cantaloupe the size of a basketball (and it was SUPER tasty too!), two large heads of broccoli, patty pan squash, zucchini, hot peppers, tomatoes, green and purple string beans, carrots and cucumbers.  Anything extra we blanch and freeze for winter. I have also made and frozen 3 loaves of zucchini bread and canned 15 quarts of sweet pickles!   Yes, it's been busy here in my kitchen!  One of my other goals for this summer was to try 12 new recipes (roughly one a week) and so far I've made it up to 10!  One of those was the french bread pictured above - didn't they turn out lovely?  I used Brandy's recipe - and she really is telling the truth that it is very, very easy!

So, we're heading back into the swing of things now. School starts for the kiddos next week and me the week after. John has a couple of weeks left before he heads back for another term but he's finishing up summer session this week, so it's good he'll get a bit of a break.  We're trying to make sure our "school schedule" runs okay this week with dinner, evening chores and bedtime actually on time.
