New Week, New Meal Plan

It's been awhile since I posted our meals for the week, but a few of you have told me how much you appreciate this, so it's back to the routine of meal plans on Monday.

Last week I worked on some new summer salad dishes, inspired by the hot, hot, hot weather and my intense desire to not turn on anything hot in the kitchen. I was trying to forgo turning on the A/C but I finally cried "uncle" mid-week when my poor sons were literally sweating, even with their ceiling fans cranked up to high. Look for some new summer recipes in the coming weeks.

But now we've gone from close to 90 degrees last week to 50s today and tomorrow. Time for a few last soups and cool weather meals before we return to late spring weather later this week:

Tortellini Soup

Chili Lime Salmon, Corn on the Cob (a sure sign of summer), Rice Pilaf and Eggplant
Vegetarian Enchiladas, Green Chile Rice
Indian Night--Roasted Cauliflower and Chickpeas, Mango Dal, Rice, Raita
Layered Taco Salad

Have a sweet week,
