Menu Plan

I forgot to mention last week that that Ladies-wot-Brunch were here recently and our menu consisted of:

Caramel Drizzle Coffee
Pasta Salad
Carrot Salad
Spinach Salad w/Warm Peach & Thyme Dressing
Chocolate Cookie Cheesecake

Diva went to summer camp today.  
It's her last hurrah before school starts.  
A little bittersweet for both of us.

We met Engineer's parents for lunch then all drove out together to drop her off in the even Deeper Piney Woods of East Texas than where we normally live.  She's going to have an amazing time but let's hope I don't get another call from the nurse's station this year informing me that the child wore her glasses while sailing, was hit with the boom, and now some fish can see really well.

This is my last chance to do any major clear outs or clean ups before we swing into action for school and all "H" breaks loose.  
You know what I mean...the "H" word...Holidays...what did you think I meant? 
I know that's a little mean to spring on you in August but we all need to face the facts that they are right around the corner.

With that being said, here's what we week-long empty nesters will be eating:

Sunday - Pizza, Grapes, & Salad
Monday - Lamb Pitas w/Tzatziki & Greek Salad 
Tuesday - Black Beans w/Pico de Gallo & Cornbread Muffins
Wednesday - Stuffed Eggplant, Ratatouille, & Vermicelli
Thursday - Leftovers
Friday - Date Night
Saturday - Dinner with Friends

  1. You are pretty funny. Enjoyed your post and enjoying your blog! Visiting here from MPM.

  2. Great blog and the menu sounds devine! We love pico de gallo here in south texas and have it often as a snack with chips. I have never made muffaletta so I think we might try it out this weekend! visiting from MPM!

    1. Thanks! As a fellow Texan, I would expect that you would have the same appreciation for pico as we do. :) Mmmmm....the olive mix that goes on muffalettas is a great gift from our Louisiana neighbors. ;)
