Week 28

Summer is officially over with the Labor Day holiday behind us and I'm amazed that it really brought cooler weather to Atlanta!  We had the remnants of that Tropical Storm head through town this weekend, so we've had rain, tornadoes and lots of wet leaves everywhere!  It really looks like Autumn is here now.  Fortunately, we were not affected by any tornadoes, but we did hear the sirens going off for a warning last night! 

We had our first ever cul-de-sac dinner on Labor Day! It was such a great time and my wonderful neighbor, Gerard, led the way by teaching me to make coq au vin.  So, we cooked the main course and rice, but the rest of the neighbors filled in with sides and desserts!  It was so much fun to have everyone together over a nice meal. 

Alain and I also got to go whitewater rafting this weekend with our friends from New York!  That was a blast and I'm still sore!  It's been a busy weekend and that's my excuse for not getting the menu posted before today.  I'll just start the menu from today and go through Sunday.
White Water rafting the Ocoee River!
 Here's this week's menu:
Tuesday - Leftovers
Wednesday - Turkey chili, salad
Thursday - Salad nicoise with salmon, potatoes and veggies
Friday - Grilled chicken, roasted cauliflower and carrots
Saturday - Turkey tacos, black beans, rice, seared zucchini
Sunday - Out to dinner

Happy cooking everyone!
