Weekly Menu Plan – July 18, 2010

The dog days of summer. What does that mean anyway? WikiAnswers says it means “You are panting in the summer like a dog.” LOL! This answer from Yahoo! Answers seemed a little more believable “It comes from the sky (astrology) and the ancient Egyptians. But back in the day the Egyptians would celebrate “dog days,” because the rising of the Sun, combined with the Dog Star, announced a very good thing. It was during this time each and every year that the River Nile would flood, reviving all of the surrounding parched land.” What do you think?

The menu this week will include lots of fresh fruits and veggies, as per typical during the summer. I can’t get enough fruit. The kids are getting tired of it, but eat it to get dessert. 😉

Sunday – Rotisserie chicken, steamed green beans & carrots, Bhutanese red rice and salad.

Monday -Mexican pizzas (veggie for me), black beans & corn and salad

Tuesday – Pasta or gnocchi with creamy pumpkin sage sauce, zucchini & salad

Wednesday -BBQ baby back ribs, baked potato, broccoli & salad

Thursday –Indian vegetarian curried fried rice and salad (the fam may revolt when I serve this)

Friday -Homemade pizza, salad & fruit

Saturday -Leftovers

Baked Goods

Craving cookies, so I am sure I will make something
