This week, I was determined to have something new in the menu to make up for not having any new recipes last week. I did end up making a couple of new things for breakfast last week, so I wasn't completely without excitingly different meals. I turned to my very neglected recipe box this week - I don't think it's been out of the cabinet in months. I have many recipes in there that I have never tried, and this week, I've actually picked a couple to try.
Thursday - Grill night #2: barbequed ribs - the free ones! (cooked in crock pot all day, then crisped up on the grill to perfection), rice pilaf, glazed carrots, sliced bread (soaked in the sauce, Kansas City BBQ style).
Friday - Apple Havarti Chicken (using this recipe as a guideline, but using havarti instead of swiss since I have some on hand), crunch top potatoes, "fried" apples (using up my freezer stash from my brother's tree last fall), biscuits. The entree is another new recipe I've had in my box for some time but never tried.
Saturday - Pizza night has been moved to Saturday this week due to the 4th of July holiday. DH will have to work, and then we'll head over to an overlook to watch several big fireworks displays from one location - I'll be taking popcorn, sodas, and other snacks for the fun). I think it will be a ham/mushroom/pineapple pizza on sourdough crust.
Sunday - Lasagna, salad if the garden has enough, or corn if not, and breadsticks.
Next week will be a pretty easy week to plan due to evening activities and the second day of lasagna. Check back next week for that plan!
