Menu Plan Monday

Fingernails ready to fall out from all the holding on that’s going on.

Someone, like a fool, has decided to host a canning class this week.  I’m actually exctied by what I’m learning, especially considering how many tomato plants are in our backyard right now…  I think it could be helpful to make some salsa and spaghetti sauce, crushed tomatoes and the like.

BUT, I’m almost out of recipes.  Yipes!

Dijon Coque Monsieur — I love having sandiwches in the summer.  Makes me happy.  8 points
Balsamic Chicken with Mushrooms — who doesn’t love balsamic vinegar?  3 points!
Bacon and Wild Mushroom Risotto with Baby Spinach — I always love stuff like this when I get it at restaurants 9 points
Pan-Fried Egg Rolls — who doesn’t love an egg roll? 2 points per roll — I will probably eat more than one and will serve it with some stir fry or something.

I’m not really sure what this week or my summer life is going to bring.  Balls drop during the summer and I need to be OK with it.  It’s only 9 weeks this year. :)

BUT, I’d love to see your favorites on your blog to steal some easy ideas!

In other news, we realled like Sauteed Chicken with Tonnato sauce.  It was light and summery with the chicken and and the tuna/anchovy sauce.  Yes, it sounds kind of gross but Drew and I really liked it and the kids thought it was an 8 out of 10. :)

    You are right, Sandwiches in the summer ARE great! And balsamic chicken and mushrooms sounds really good.
    And now blogger is making me write the word ‘losers’ for the word verification. How do they know I’m up late, all alone in the dark blog surfing, feelin like a loser, because my husband is gone :)
