Meal Plan July 18, 2010

Mindful MenusWe are home from an exhausting, challenging, beautiful Canada canoe trip.  I am processing nearly one thousand photographs and a multitude of emotions while settling into our everyday routine.  The garden greeted us with ripening fruits and vegetables, many of which are featured in this week's dinners. Monday - Braised goat ribs from Stratford Ecological Center, mashed sweet and homegrown cranberry red potatos, homegrown Parisian picking cucumber and Clint Eastwood tomato salad.

Tuesday - Pan fried ricotta gnocchi (Steamy Kitchen's recipe) with homegrown tomatoes and basil

Wednesday - Rachel volunteering and eating with Ohio 4-H/Labo international program, Alex and Lil make chicken, rice, and garden salad

Thursday - Rachel volunteering and eating with Ohio 4-H/Labo international program, Alex and Lil make spaghetti and sausage

Friday - Homemade pizza

Saturday - All day birthday surprise for Alex!  I told him where we are going and he already forgot.  We're perfect for each other, seeing as how I can't keep a secret and he can't remember plans!

Sunday - family birthday dinner for sister Megan & Alex: Grilled Red ribs, chicken wings, and brats, Ohio sweet corn, potato packets, green beans
