Weekly Menu

While I hate that summer is "winding down" because that means winter is coming... it is basically the best weather of the entire year!  Not too hot with crisp mornings and sunshiny days.  We still have a month left!  So ignore those sweaters and boots at the store and the back-to-school/summer is over messaging (unless you have kids, please send them back) and go celebrate summer outside for another month!  :)

If you have a veggie garden, it is probably bursting at the seams.  Everyone always seem to have excess zucchini, but we always end up with excess hot peppers!  Habaneros, jalapeƱos, chilis, and now poblanos.  The trick seems to be having two plants, somehow one plant produces four peppers, but two plants produce 200!  So for the next couple weeks, Mexican food will dominate our meal plan... which I am totally okay with... 

red peppers from the garden spaghetti squash pimento peppers almost ready banana peppers growing chive flowers being pollinated buzzing bees crew brew voting crew goal franklin park conservatory franklin park conservatory jeep hair, don't care blendon woods 

Jeep hair, don't care moment with blue skies for days... summer, please don't ever go!

This week's plan is featuring everything nightshade (tomatoes, peppers, eggplant) because it is all ripening at once...

verde pulled chicken and rice
zoodles and meatballs
eggplant parmesan 
bison burgers with tomato salad
enchilada stuffed poblanos with mexican corn



  1. That sounds like a yummy menu. I've got to get around to putting mine together this morning :) Confessions of an Ex-Ballerina

  2. I might be in the minority, but I'm weirdly looking forward to fall. But don't get me wrong, I'm going to miss all the amazing produce!

    1. I would love Fall if it wasn't followed by winter! Maybe this year we'll have a long fall and a short winter?!?! I could probably handle that. ;)
