I feel like Fall is in full swing. Football is on, evenings are cool(er), and leaves are beginning to change. I am pulling out the fall decorations and giving the house a little lift. I want my menu to reflect that, too.
Monday – Pasta Primavera – this version is full of squash – zucchini, yellow and butternut all make an appearance.
Tuesday – Beef Stroganoff
Wednesday – Brown Sugar Chicken with Apples in the Crock Pot – chicken thighs with a brown sugar and Dijon mustard rub slow cooked with apples in apple juice.
Thursday – Cheese Ravioli in Sage Butter – so easy it hurts. Make Buitoni cheese raviolis according to the package. Melt butter in a pan then add 10 fresh sage leaves that have been chopped. Pour the butter over the cooked ravioli and sprinkle with parmesan.
Friday – It’s another baseball day so there will be dinner on the go. Probably sandwiches.
I can’t believe that it is the last week of summer! Where did the time go? We have had a fantastic summer, but I think it is time to go back to school. I crave the structure and the schedule that goes along with school. I think, secretly, my kids do too.
Monday – 3 Bean Enchiladas – we are sticking with Meatless Mondays!
Tuesday – Spaghetti Carbonara – this is one of my favorites!!
Wednesday – Shrimp Stir Fry
Thursday – Burgers and Grilled Corn on the Cob
Friday – this weekend is going to be spent getting ready for school so it’s a chefs choice day. Whatever I have in the fridge is what is for dinner.
I hope everyone had a wonderful fourth of July. We did! It was fantastic celebrating in Maine with my family, especially cousins I haven’t seen in almost a decade. Now it’s back to the summer in North Carolina – swimming, boating and relaxing with the kiddos.
Monday – Cheese Tortellini in Cream Sauce with Kale Salad
Tuesday – Pretzel Crusted Chicken with Green Beans
Wednesday – Taco Salad
Thursday – Pasta with Summer Vegetables (corn, onion, yellow squash, tomato and zucchini)
This week I am actually in Maine again visiting my family. So, instead of doing my regular menu, I thought I would share with you some of my very favorite recipes from home. My dad is the best cook around and an amazing outdoorsman so there is plenty of wild game. And being in New England, lobster, of course!
