Sweet. I’ve abandoned my blog again. =P I was also very self indulgent this weekend and spent most of my time reading or sipping chilled beverages by a pool. I did manage to get off my butt and plan meals and go shopping. And there was the seven loads of laundry. And a visit to the dog park.
CSA Box-Carrots, cucumber, squash, tomatoes, corn, potatoes, basil, apricots, and watermelon.
I also have a lot of squash, tomatoes, and cucumber in the garden. I love veges, but there are just too many to eat in a week. I better start throwing some dinner parties.
J is reviewing a wine pairing book for Sac book review. It is called 100 Perfect Pairing and is filled with recipes for small plates to pair with wine. Because I am adventerous and rather fond of wine (but never know what to have it with), I am very excited to try out a few sides this week. We chose white wines because it’s hot and cool beverages are in order.
Here is the plan.
Sat-Pesto panini made with my fragrant CSA basil and heirloom tomatoes.
Sun-Pool party at friends. I made zucchini bread. Yum!
Mon-Enchiladas. J’s mom made enchiladas last week and we still have leftovers.
Tues-Caprese salad and pork. I’ll be pairing it with pinot gris.
Wed-Pork fajitas. Gotta use up the leftover. (There is no way I can eat 2lb of pork loin in one night.)
Thurs-Gazpacho and a side of roasted potatoes.
Fri-Fresh corn with citrus butter and another item TBD. The corn is supposed to go well with sauvignon blanc. We shall see.
