Dinner 7-25-2016 ~ Your Monday Menu?

It's too hot to cook again. Even though we have central air, it's too hot to cook. I'll suck it up and boil a couple of eggs to put into a cold tuna salad. We'll have tuna melts and big, cool salads for supper. I scored a great deal on clamshell mixed greens and arugula and have to use it up - today is last day of sale and it goes fast after opening. But at a total of 75 cents for the two packages? I've already broken even with yesterday's breakfast (almost-runny egg over arugula with feta and walnuts - yum).

What is your supper plan? If it's butt-in-the-sand/cold-drink-in-the-hand, send me directions.

Nice sea breeze this afternoon, and we're in the upper 70's - about perfect. Turkey tenderloins in honey mustard on the grill, zucchini, summer squash and onions in the grill basket, buttered egg noodles.

GF needs her pasta fix and have a big sage bush I want to use up so I'll make up some brown sage butter and chop up whatever we have between the garden and refrigerator for a salad. Maybe use up a bit of ricotta we have...

Got home from vacation late last night. No energy today after the all day car trip yesterday to get home. Not much in the pantry since we cleaned it out before leaving. I have some links of smoked sausage that I'll fry up and add some tomato sauce to them and cook up some pasta and have a quick spaghetti. Tomorrow I'll hit the grocery and have more options.
I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!

Baked chicken breasts with herbs and Parmesan, freezer corn (from last year's garden), sliced fresh tomatoes and iced tea.

I'm doing Johnsonville beer Brats tonight the GG way, simmered on the side burner in kraut, beer, sliced onion, grainy mustard, thyme, and caraway seeds, finished on the grill. His will be with big toasted buns, and I'll serve mine in a bowl.
Dinner salads on the side.

High of 110F here today , so not a good day for grilling. I miss it. I can't see that happening for a while, as the weather reports call for the temps to rise to 114F by Thursday. Oy.

I've been using up fruits and veggies, so this afternoon's dinner was a mushroom, asparagus, and red bell pepper omelet, with a nice cold bowl of watermelon on the side. Quick and easy, and hit the spot.
