Happy Monday! I'm looking forward to the short break in the heat this week and a much-needed lunch & shopping date with my momma tomorrow. My parents took a 2-month road trip from mid-May to mid-July and haven't seen her much since they returned.
You can probably tell from our menu, but we have zucchini, yellow squash and lettuce coming out of our ying yang. Having a productive garden is so exciting! At first I was overwhelmed by it, but now I'm enjoying the challenge of finding new recipes and new ways to prepare it. Pinterest has proved a GREAT source for this research.
Monday: chicken meatballs, whole wheat pasta, zucchini rounds
Tuesday: tilapia in parchment packets, baked potato, sweet corn
Wednesday: Cheesy Zucchini Enchiladas, brown rice
Thursday: leftovers on the run (hub's softball night)
Friday: grilled chicken breasts served over salad w/ lots of toppings
Saturday: homemade pizza
Sunday: hamburgers, steak fries, salad

Hey, hey, hey! Look at me, posting on a Wednesday and something other than a weekly menu. I've been eyeing this linkup for a very long time and I'm happy to be participating in my very first What I'm Loving Wednesday today!

Hope you all had a fabulous 4th of July holiday weekend. We did. It was pretty low-key and very relaxing. Peanut went swimming for the very first time in a friend's pool. She loved it!
I'm trying 3 new-to-us recipes this week and I'm pretty excited about them. Here's what we're eating:
Monday: cookout with friends
Tuesday: Chicken Pitas with Yogurt-Dill Sauce
Wednesday: Bangin' Good Shrimp (imitation Bang Bang Shrimp from Bonefish Grill)
Thursday: Salsa Chicken (slow cooker)
Friday: BLTs (with fresh lettuce and tomatoes from our garden!)
Saturday: cheeseburgers @ camp
Sunday: probably grab pizza on the way home from camp
