menu for the week

We saw this movie on Friday and absolutely LOVED it! I thought Meryl Streep did a great job as Julia Child, and it really made me start thinking about how much I LOVE to cook. I plan our meals for the whole week, every week, so we know what's on the menu and so I can keep a better eye on how much we spend at the grocery store. For the past 2 weeks, it's been under $75 (including cleaning products, etc...) We cook at home atleast 5 nights a week and then the weekends are sort of hit and miss. We usually go out with friends or just eat a big lunch out on Sunday's and then eat a light dinner

On Saturday, Todd went fishing with some friends and they had the best luck! This is Todd with one of his Rockfish (sorry so small and poor, it's from a cell phone) We will have fish for a long time now!! They boys did great, and caught their limit by 9am, however, enjoyed the day out on the water until 2-3pm. They also caught some bluefish, and hit a turkey in the car!! Welcome to the Eastern Shore! LOL
Menu for the week
Rockfish, red potatoes, green beans
Cheeseburgers and watermelon
Chili stuffed zucchini boats
Roasted tomato and zucchini /squash pasta
Chicken Alfredo with broccoli
Then, Saturday and Sunday we are out....Saturday we are going to the National Zoo with John and Laura and on Sunday we are enjoying dinner with the Pochron's at the Dixon's house!! : )
I belong to a CSA with a local farm. I collect 1/2 a share each week for $12.50 and get a wide variety of fruits and vegetables. It's great. This week, we have a lot of zucchini to get through.
Next week starts my Book Club.....stay tuned!! I am soo excited!
