Week 27

I've been buying jalepenos like wildfire lately!  I used to always hesitate to put them in salsa and guacamole, but they are normally not very spicy when the veins and seeds are removed.  In my opinion, they just make everything taste better.  We're growing habaneros in our cul-de-sac garden this year and those plants produce a ton of peppers!  How anyone could use that many habaneros is beyond me, but my neighbor is trying to make sure that not one of them goes to waste by making lots of hot sauce.  I'll stick to my jalapenos and serranos thank you very much!

We have friends coming into town over Labor Day weekend, so it should be a light week on our menu as I clean and prepare for the fun. 

This week's menu:
Sunday - Pizza
Monday - Ground turkey tacos, black beans
Tuesday - Leftovers
Wednesday - Grilled salmon, roasted veggies, white rice (for kids)
Thursday - Thai basil shrimp, leftover rice
Friday - Out to Dinner
Saturday - Barbecued ribs (beef & pork),
Sunday - Out to Dinner?

This is an unusual week for us since it looks like we're not actually eating at home very much.  We have Open House this week for the girls, Orientation meeting for Zach's preschool, I have a consignment sale meeting and our friends come into town on Friday!  I can't wait!

Have a great week!

I'm looking forward to reading your menus!
