This Week's Menu

Summer has hit the PNW.  Everyone says that it's not summer until July 5th here and I have to agree.  It's freaking hot outside.  And when it's hot outside, it's hot inside since we don't have AC.  Maybe this will be the year that we finally cave and get a mobile unit. We've been saying that now for three summers.

Our next house will have AC.

Which is probably the weirdest thing I have ever said considering I lived in Las Vegas for 30 years and if you didn't have AC in Las Vegas you die.

This is the first full week we have been home since school got out.  I am so excited to get into a summer routine full of parks, pools and picnics.

And now onward to our menu this week!  It's going to be super full since I am trying really hard to not eat out.  And because I love the farmer's markets, I'll be hitting them up twice a week to get our produce!
