Let’s talk about last week. Last week I was obsessed with wine pairing. And the cook book did not disappoint. I have decided that my all time favorite summer meal is….drum roll please…
- Citrus butter corn on the cob.
- Tortellini tossed with olive oil, crushed red pepper, and parmesan.
- Carpese salad
- White wine (I served both pinot grigio and sauvignon blanc)
I went over to a friends on Thursday and they were having two types of salad: caprese and cucumber, tomatoe, and olive served alongside tortellini. I had already eaten dinner so I only sampled the dishes, but I was so inspired, I served a similar meal the next day. Sadly, no pictures.I’m pretty sure I should move to the Mediterranean.
This week there will be more light vegetable and pasta dishes.
CSA Box: summer squash, watermelon, peaches, walnuts, tomatoes, corn, and green beans.
Garden: Squash, squash, and more squash. I also have some hot peppers. I harvested an egg plant last week and promptly forgot to include it in meal planning until just now. Oops.
Sat: Linguine tossed with bell pepper, crushed red pepper, and kalamata olives. Side of fresh veges served with leftover citrus butter.
Sun: N/A. Out of town. Most likely eating out.
Mon:Carbonerra with corn. This meal is all yellow and very carb heavy. Nom nom nom.
Tues: Zucchini and tomato couscous salad with ham
Wed: Big daddies (essentially a tostada made with fried wheat tortillas instead of corn)
Thurs: Summer squash fritters with sausage.
Friday: Potato salad and leftover brats.
