So What's On The Table For Monday July 9?

It is finally summer here and very warm. I am thinking club salads will be nice and I don't have to cook!

What are you having?

It's meatless Monday here--I have beans, chard, kale, peas, onions, lettuce, baby beets, and radishes from the garden. Not sure what I'm going to make. Probably a stir fry.

A spinach and feta stuffing I had made a while ago for a couple of extra thick pork chops. When I make a batch of this stuffing, it's enough for two meals so I freeze half. I'm using the second half of the batch for a tenderloin.

when I opened the freezer to dig out the stuffing, I saw some frozen lo mein noodles so decided to make sesame noodles for a side.

I'm thinking ham and Swiss strombolis. Salads. Have strawberries and blueberries still for dessert. I'm hoping to find some nice peaches for the wonderful peach cobbler posted this weekend.

Kathleen made stuffed peppers last night for our dinner today.

I wonder if she would notice a couple missing for my lunch.

The Chinese food in my neck of the woods has gotten so bad, I decided to dust off the wok & give Beef Lo Mein a go. Marinating flank steak in ginger, garlic & soy sauce, and have some stir-fry veggies (asparagus, mushrooms, onions, carrots etc.). Plan B, is to turn the marinated beef into *Asian-style kabobs w veggies & noodles.

Baked ziti and green salad. I assembled the ziti last night and Ds will put it into the oven. Therefore, he gets credit for "making" dinner.

Dinner tonight will be shrimp grilled and tossed with an orzo salad of sliced grape tomatoes, kalamata olives, roasted asparagus, and feta cheese.

Enjoy the day

Dinner tonight is leftovers.

But I did go out in the backyard, pick cherries, and make a couple of pies.

Steve, your pies look great. I finished picking sour cherries a couple weeks ago. Different kinds ripen at different schedules I guess.

Tonight's dinner is an everything salad, cobb salad, call it what you will. Baby spinach, sliced grilled chicken, avocado that must be eaten, tomatoes, onion, radish, cukes, zukes and some serrano peppers. I think I'm forgetting something. Too many baggies and covered containers in the frig at the moment. Parmesan peppercorn dressing or blue cheese dressing. I have some melon and (store bought) cherries for dessert. I made squeezed lemonade earlier today.

Harry, your grilled fish dinner looks fabulous, as well as Tom's octopus dish. I've never had the opportunity to try octopus, but that dish sure does looks tasty. And I want a big slice of Steve's cherry pie, immediately. Those are beautiful!

Not sure yet what's on my dinner menu, but it will be something cool and light, that I know for sure.
