A Little Planning Goes a Long Way

My friend Mary Louise has started a weekly menu challenge on her blog, MLCH Garden: Flora, Food & Friends. While planning our meals is something I like to do, this summer I have not been as organized. So, thank you Mary Louise for the challenge, the inspiration, and the reminder to get organized. This week I am ready.

Monday: grilled marinated chicken; coucous; bruschetta; peaches w/ freshly squeezed lemons

Tuesday: linguine w/ clam sauce; garden salad w/ tomatoes; watermelon

Wednesday: pepper steak over rice; ricotta pound cake

Thursday: pressed cubano panini; roasted “carrot fries”; fruit salad

Friday Family night: grilled homemade pizza; root beer floats

Saturday: chicken spiedini (kabobs); spinach-apple salad w/ maple cider vinaigrette

Sunday late lunch at Nonna & Nonno’s: cold cereal in evening for anyone who is still hungry:)

Che menu speciale, io sicuramente non sono così brava. Posso copiarlo?
Altrimenti a casa nostra (a parte la Chiara) è quasi sempre minestrone, infatti il sabato e la domenica, non so perchè, vuole cucinare Luciano.

Hm, if I knew how to cook, this would be a great idea for me to work with.
