Menu Plan–August 4

I am loving this weather – friends, it has been absolutely beautiful here.  Windows wide open, breeze coming in, sun shining down…. August is here, which means fall weather is on the way. 

Our menu plan last week didn’t go too well – we ate almost next to nothing on the day it was planned.  But, since I had all the ingredients on hand, it was easy to choose the meal for the day. 

I know some of you meal plan by deciding on a pot of recipes for the week and then you pick and choose each day.  I have to say, I enjoyed that a little bit this week. 

Our highlights were the Savory Tartlet (1st photo), Italian Pork Chops (2nd photo) and Lemon Blueberry Scones (3rd photo).

This week, I have another conference and have a dear friend from graduate school in town for the occasion!  You’ll notice there are lots of vegetarian meals this week in our menu, that’s because my friend is a vegetarian.  It should be a fun week.
