Pasta w/Pesto, Potatoes & Green Beans

Red Curry Chicken over Jasmin Rice (never made it last week so here we go again!)

Wild Mushroom Risotto, Butter Lettuce Salad, Crusty Bread

Corn & Cheddar Chowder, Red Lettuce Salad w/Cucs & Peppers

Garlic & Pepper Marinated Steak, Sauteed Haricots Verts, Baguette

Since I've been munching on cupcakes from here as well as Girl Scout cookies all week, I am not planning on making any desserts. But, that doesn't mean I won't have a weak moment....:) I'll keep ya posted.

This is a very timely post for me! Do YOU ever have those weeks where you run dry on menu ideas?

Can I come eat at your house this week?

Laurie, while I don't ever run dry on recipes (I constantly feel like I have so many recipes to try and so little time!) I do have those nights when we have pancakes, waffles or a Costco special for dinner! For inspiration try www.epicurious.com (they have a super ratings system that helps you "sift") and a few cookbooks like The Carefree Cook, any of the Barefoot Contessa books, or the new Everyday Food.

Mmm...pesto...curry...risotto...Now I'm hungry. I never thought to pair pasta and potatoes in the same dish. I might try it! Here is one of my favorites as the weather warms and tomatoes ripen: http://www.foodnetwork.com/food/recipes/recipe/0,,FOOD_9936_31416,00.html.

Kimberly, that does look like a great recipe. When I start receiving tomatoes from my CSA I'll have to make it. Thank you for the recommendation!

I've been looking for a reason to make homemade pesto... my basil plants never last very long, after buying. I'm clueless as to why- having tried sun, shade, water, misting, etc. I've got to do something soon with one I bought last week. Thanks for the inspiration!

Stephanie said...

Wish I could say mine was going to be homemade :) It's amazing how easy and tasty it is to pick up storemade pesto these days! Harmons has a good one...

Laurie said...
