Happy summer friends! I hope the month of July has been good to you with long days and lazy nights. There is so much fresh summer veggies available now, it’s the perfect time to take advantage eating local! Butter and sugar corn is finally at the market and it’s worth the wait.
I’ve been inspired by the many great vegetarian dishes in my beach magazine reading. I recently read the new Rodale Organic Life (second issue) and there are a ton of great recipes and stories. This article with some raw vegetable pasta sauces is one I pinned. Once our schedule settles down a bit we are going to work on making vegetarian dishes the main meal for more of our weeknight dinners. (and yes, my husband is on board.)
On the menu this week…
Monday~ Honey Balsamic Chicken Drumsticks, grilled zucchini (from my dad’s garden) and pasta with herbs. I also want to try to grill some romaine. I’ve seen it so many times in magazines and dying to see how it tastes.
Tuesday~Shrimp scampi and corn on the cob
Wednesday~ Grilled chicken over locally grown mescaline greens.
Thursday~ Family trip to Lake Winnepesaukee! Tag along with our adventure on Instagram.
