Beautiful low 70's today, cool breeze off the lake. Will be grilling bratwurst patties/swiss cheese on grilled rye bread. Corn on the cob, sliced tomatoes and
onions. Ice cream w/caramel sauce for dessert.

I'm making my special greek shrimp and pasta dish. DH absolutely loves it. A few months ago, I made it for lunch for a friend and she wouldn't leave without the recipe.

Really all it consists of is: Mushrooms cooked in butter and/or olive oil with spices such as salt, pepper, garlic powder, paprika. Than some Kalmata Olives, some juice of the olives and some lemon juice mixed into the pan. When that's all cooked - you throw in the shrimp. Of course in the mean time - you boil water and cook up some pasta. You mix it all together and throw in LOTS of feta cheese and woalla!!!!

salads of arrugula, mesculun, basil, tomatoes, cukes, and zucchini, all from mine and my neighbors' gardens. (i traded arrugula and mesculun lettuces for cukes and early tomatoes ), dressed in evoo and balsamic.

i need to start a post as to what to do with all of my arrugula.

then, i'm making chicken parm, sauce from scratch, with spaghetti.

Chicken fajitas with fresh peppers, onions, plum tomatoes; Spanish Rice; and of course got to have lots of homemade guacamole.

Legend - your pasta sounds great. Do you use wild mushrooms?

Yikes! My Omaha Steaks etc arrived yesterday - brats, steaks, kebobs, cheesecake etc, etc. I had to do a juggling act to get everything into the freezer -- plus I have shrimp, sirloin burgers, fillets, won tons/dumplings, salmon, chicken, red potatoes, fresh corn on the cob. You name it, it's in the fridge. Who wants to come over with a big fork All I can think about right now is the cheesecake and my fresh strawberries. Get back to you later.

I usually use cut up portobello's. There's another kind I use sometimes too, but I can't remember now. My brain isn't working right now as far as mushroom names. However, I'm sure other mushrooms would be fine too.
