Thank you for stopping by this weekend, I hope you had a great time with your family. On Sunday afternoon, I organized my cookbooks and recipes. It's hard to believe June is almost here and the time for lighter lunches and dinners.
I get most of my recipes off the internet, but my favorite summer cookbook is Gardeners' Community Cookbook. I found it at Goodwill many years ago.
I put tabs on all of the recipes I'm interested in making. I never get to them all, but it's fun to try!
You can't go wrong with tomatoes, zucchini, fresh herbs, pasta and cheese.
Tomato, Basil and Cheese Pie
I also updated the menu organizer on my fridge. I did really well with it at the beginning of the year, but recently got out of the habit.
Every day has a post-it note. A lot of our meals of repeated, so I just move the note over to the right side, until I need it again.
We want to start having friends over for dinner once a week this summer. I made a list of possible appetizers, lunches/dinners, salads and desserts. We like to grill some kind of meat and then make several side dishes.
Hopefully having a list close by will make the dinner planning easier, especially when my mind goes blank!
Finally, I want to share a little something that Grace put together this weekend. Cantaloupe and cherries are on sale right now, so she arranged the sliced cantaloupe on a plate.
And filled in the empty spots with cherries! Isn't that a great idea?
Thank you for looking at my summer menus. I would love to hear about some of your favorite things to eat this time of year!
