Wednesday's Meal is full of ?? July 16/14

I figure I will start this as we will be having our main meal in about an hour as TB is still on afternoons.

It is still really hot here so salads are on the menu again. Today it will be a bed of red leaf lettuce, romaine from our garden and arugula. This will be topped with cuc's, tomato, red onion, avocado, pumpkin seeds and grilled prawns (for TB). I will have some chicken in mine and might add some to TB's too if he wants. On the side will be "buttered" fresh gluten free potato flax bread that is more like regular french bread.

Wednesday's meal will be full of pasta Florentine from the pressure cooker. I can cook the pasta right in with the sauce so no standing over a boiling pot of water. I need to pick up some garlic bread fixiings. And....drum roll.......a salad.

Leftover roast chicken and fixins for us. I may do a quesadilla and SO will probably have the L/O pilaf.

I went to Trader Joe's today and they were handing out samples of a delicious Mexican casserole, along with the really simple recipe made with their products. That's what we're having for dinner. We have to have a green salad too.

Wednesday's meal was full of...compromise. Hot day so cooking seemed undesirable.

Got some reduced smoked salmon at the supermarket so bought a grain baguette, cucumber, fennels and lemon.

At home I made egg mayo (fairly hard boiled egg grated into mayo) to spread on cooled, recrusted baguette (i.e. grilled on low heat to get it crusty and left to cool). Added
the smoked salmon with cucumber slices.

Made a fennel salad (with some celery and marina tomato I had - the flavour variety). Ate a hass avocado first then the baguette and salad. Perfect!

Wednesday's meal was full of corn and cherries, and they were delicious!

Easy meal for us tonight. Steamed baby asparagus with a touch of butter, cucumber salad, quartered fresh tomatoes, grilled steak, iced tea and the last of the blueberry pie.

Kayelle, will you share the info for the TJ's Mexican casserole, please? I love that they frequently hand out samples and recipes. Hoping to get down to TJ's within the next couple of weeks.

I had a cheese enchilada and a salad. I almost called ahead to my fave little Mexican restaurant to place an order, but remembered I had some leftover enchilada sauce in the freezer from the last batch, plus all the other fixin's, so I just made it instead.
