Menu Plan Monday - Week of July 7, 2013

Snacks from our camping trip - chips and popcorn! YUM!
With being on "vacation" and our 4th of July celebrating, I feel like all I've done the last two weeks is eat snack food!  I know we've eaten "real" food in there too, but that's what it feels like.  We're back to a more "normal" food pattern this week and our "normal" summer schedule.  Whew. I'm looking forward to that.

I'm blanching and freezing some peas this week - we have too many to eat at one time and we'll get more in our CSA box this week.  So, into the freezer they go!   We're planning our menu to use up broccoli, peas, purple beets and salad greens so that we make good use of what we have and eat healthy too.  We're having a couple of John's Seminary classmates over for dinner on Saturday so I'm making rhubarb cake and homemade vanilla ice cream for dessert and French bread for dinner to share with them. Yummy!  We'll probably send a loaf of French bread home with each of them as a gift because the recipe I use makes 4 loaves and we really have trouble eating 4 loaves before they start to mold, especially in the heat and humidity we currently have.  We'll eat two for dinner and then I'll send the other two home with our two guests.
