Menu Plan–July 21

We ended up not turning on the oven very much last week with some HOT weather!  This weekend, however, has been stunning. 

I wanted to make up for lost time in the kitchen (i.e., replenish granola, crackers, tortillas, bread etc.), but I couldn’t make myself be indoors.  Instead, we worked in the garden and went for lots of walks.

And, had a water fight – with the hose while watering the garden.  The hose won. 

We also celebrated my dad’s birthday!!  In my parent’s new porch :)  Lots of fun this weekend. 

Our recipe highlights from the week go to an old favorite – Berry Banana Muffins

And, a new favorite – chicken pesto sandwiches.  Yummy!  This recipe is coming soon.
