Menu plan week of 7/14 – Summer cooking

We were talking after our tennis game the other night and one of my friends said that she really hated cooking in the summer.  When you have been to work all day and then tried to squeeze in a tennis game or some time at the pool, it can be hard to face coming home and fixing something.  I’m going to try to help address that this week.  The grilled ratatouille that we have with our steak tonight will provide leftovers for easy open-faced sandwiches on Wednesday.  The sundried tomato chicken pasta salad is the type of thing you can make, refrigerate and eat lunches and dinners from all week long.  The crab rolls are quick to fix and cool to eat.  And I’m mixing up a batch of gazpacho with goodies from the produce stand.  It’s a nice side with sandwiches or you can add a few cooked shrimp or some crab meat and make that a meal.  Here is the menu plan:

Sunday

Grilled Porterhouse steaks (on sale at Graul’s), grilled ratatouille and salaad

Monday

Sundried tomato chicken pasta salad

Tuesday

Fish tacos

Wednesday

Arugula, ratatouille and mozzarella sandwiches

Thursday

I love to cook and love to eat. I work full time and have a family so managing good meals during the week requires organization. I'm hoping to share my weekly menu plans and recipes to make things a little easier for those who want to follow along.
