meals for 5.24.10 to 5.31.10

i can't believe the end of may is this week... absolutely amazing... June is knocking on the door...and that means SUMMER! :) yay! :) lots of fresh fruit...veggies...
cookouts with family and friends...BBQing... roasted marshmallows... mmmm! :) life is good! :)

since this weekend is the "unofficial" start of summer, i'm trying to change the fare up a bit... there are still some "regulars" that we'll enjoy, however... and yes, much to Ry's dismay, soup is still on the menu... i love soup for a few reasons... it's good for you (usually), and we always have leftovers... :) this week, i decided to try a new recipe from the "Taste of Home" cookbook that i got for xmas...we'll see how it turns out! :)

Monday: cold cuts and pasta salad with salami, pepperoni, and fresh mozzarella! (yum!)
Tuesday: Amish Chicken Corn Soup (you can find this recipe by searching for it here)
Wednesday: omelets and fried zucchini

Thursday: tacos
Friday: leftovers and corn on the cob
Saturday: cookout - taking homemade mac n cheese
Sunday: spaghetti w/ homemade bread sticks
Monday: BBQ chicken, baked sweet potatoes, corn on the cob

i hope that you have a wonderful week! enjoy your time filling your bellies!

and, more importantly, please, don't forget to take some time to remember those who have fought for us and lost their lives while defending our country... it's because of those men and women that we can especially cherish our freedom on this, and every, Memorial Day...
