Menu of the Week

Corn, Potato and Leek Chowder - I am not a huge fan of cooked celery, so I replaced it with summer squash.  A great chowder made entirely of fresh, local, farmer's market produce.  This was really good, and perfect for a cool and rainy summer day.  I was pleasantly surprised to see my big boy finish his entire bowl! 

Fish Tacos - I just cooked a variety of taco fillings so that we could each assemble as desired: cod, black beans, saffron rice, sauteed zucchini/squash/onion, and monterey jack. My little boy eats a ton of this, especially with a little sour cream and salsa on top.

Summer Ziti - This recipe from my Mom gets made at least once every August.  There really is no better smell in the world than the combination of fresh tomatoes, peppers, basil, and garlic. 

Pierogies, cinnamon apples, broccoli - Can you tell this is a Monday night meal?  I prepared the cinnamon apples on Sunday, so they were already ready to go.  I sauteed the pierogies with a little butter and an onion.  Served with broccoli and cheese.  Voila.
