And now... an actual plan.

School's over, camping trip's over -- no excuses left for the seat-of-our-pants dining of the past month. We made a plan this week, and we're quite proud of it!

Broiled sole (bit of olive oil, salt and pepper, sprinkle some capers, broil until tiny edges start to get brown and crispy, then a drizzle of lemon juice right at the end)
Salad -- the lettuce in the garden is still going strong! With a bit of roasted red pepper (just opened my last jar from last fall's canning extravaganza), feta and balsamic
Green beans -- first ones of the year from the garden! Hot olive oil in a hot pan, toss the beans in, give them a toss every few minutes. They get lovely little brown spots on them. Salt and pepper.

Pasta with zucchini (first of the year from the garden! It's quite a week.), scallops, basil, and Parmesan cheese

Chicken -- we'll grill one on the rotisserie, if the weather cooperates.
Random veggies for sides

Chicken salad -- the reason we made that chicken yesterday. Here's what we put in:
Chop chicken, celery, red onion, red bell pepper, mushrooms. Grate some carrot. Add some capers and frozen peas. Add some whole wheat penne pasta. Flavor it all up with some white wine Worcestershire and mayo. Mix and chill.
