Menu Plan: August 28 - September 3

We start school this Thursday after a little break. We also have house guests, so this is another busy week here. Alexander and Dominic had a nice week away with their godparents to play and work and get to know each other some more now that they are older. It was bizarre having only five children here, and I still found myself making too much food.

We made several scores on fruit at the farmers' market, so we have loads of peaches, nectarines and a huge watermelon. We also still have some pears and bananas, so we'll be eating a lot of fruit this week. I made a pear banana quick bread that was more like a cake last week. I'm going to try it again, reducing the sugar, and see how we like it. It was actually dripping caramel from the cooling rack onto the counter. It had no caramel in the pan. That was just from the amount of sugar in the "bread." It did taste very good.What is on your menu this week? If you want a recipe, ask and I will provide it as soon as I can. If there are any starred recipes, I will follow up separately with a weekly recipe round up on Saturday.
