Back to the Routine! and Menu Monday

We were out of town for a bit, gone for a family reunion. When we got back (Thursday evening) we were busy with checking on animals and gardens, planting some more garden, preparing for and having Father's day...plus I worked all day Saturday. So, today, I finally uploaded pictures from the trip. I'll get them sorted and post some soon!

Just wanted to let you know I didn't abandon the blog! More soon, I promise!

Anyway, this is what we'll be eatin'.
M-Teri Beef, Rice, Macaroni Salad, Broccoli, Pineapple (the double starch is a Hawaii thing)
T-Baked Chicken w/herbs, Quinoa, Fresh Vegetables (garden and crisper drawer)
W-Spaghetti w/Meat Sauce, Salad, Garlic Bread
R-Chicken-Onion Quesedillas, Bean Dip, Salsa and Chips, Nectarine Sorbet
F-Sweet-Sour Meatballs, Rice, Greens from the garden
S-Chicken w/Olive Oil & Herb pasta, Cesar Salad, Sourdough Garlic Bread, Peach Cobbler(maybe on the cobbler)
S-Tuna Salad Sandwiches, Slaw, Pickles, Pretzels

And...I need to come up with some good pasta salad recipes. I have gotten some really good sale prices on bowtie and penne pasta (okay, basically free), I've gotten a lot of smoked sausage and bratwurst for 25 cents a package (yay for sales and coupons!) and I have some fresh garden veggies just starting to come in. I think I can come up with some really yummy, affordable meals for us from all that! (Feel free to share your ideas too - leave a comment!)

one thing I do with pasta iscook the pasta, add fresh veggies of your choice and dress it with an oil and vinegar dressing, season to taste, have a loaf of crusty bread, and that is that.

Cook your meat and cut it up and toss that in amongst the pasta salad.

One of my guys fave meals with sausage is:
cut the link in 1/4s then slice it (so you get triangle pieces) cook pasta till almost done, and veggies.
Saute it all together.
it is a skillet meal they love, and i get them to eat veggies!
