Menu Plan: August 15 - August 21

We only have one repeat this week, and it is a breakfast, and we are using some of our garden bounty in our meals. We had such a late start on the garden, our area had a couple killing frosts at the end of May and then we've been miserable at staying on top of the garden. However, it is still trying its hardest to produce for us. The drive to survive is strong in just about everything living, it seems. So, we have been rewarded with tons of chard, kale, summer squash, some eggplant and such. We've already eaten up our radishes, lettuce and spinach, but it's about time to replant for the fall. If we can manage it. We've been using our farmer's market well, also, so we have fresh fruit and vegetables from actual farmers who know what they are doing and stay on top of things better than we do.

Jerome celebrates his fourth birthday this week, and he has made a few requests for his meals. Yellow is his favorite color, so he asked for a lemon cake because it is yellow. He also asked for grilled pizzas. His sister tried to talk him into Scotch eggs, but since she had to explain what it was to him, he got stuck on the hard boiled eggs part, and that's all he wants now, so it will be breakfast. Since we are breaking our Wednesday fast for his birthday celebration, we are observing one the day before.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.
