My Yummy Local Life

{June 17, 2012}   Menu for the week of 6/16

It’s a pretty chill kind of week.

6/16 dinner is grilled pizzas (and a grilled fruit tart- using this super neat recipe builder that I found) in celebration of our 5th wedding anniversary. This is our first take at grilled pizza. Also made some white peach belliniswhich were very delicious.

Our first grilled pizza with tomato, red onion, mozz and fresh basil.

For the rest of the week:

Heading out the the Fullsteam Local Virginia foods “Neighbor to our North” event on 6/17 to continue our weekend of relaxing and celebrating.  If you are in the area and don’t have something better to do for Father’s Day, you should head on over and check it out.

Monday is Gary’s grad school oral final exam- if you pray, send him some good vibes!

The rest of our menu in no particular order:

Cheese-y pasta wine dish- probably gonna hide some frozen shredded zucchini in here for veg and use the cherve goat cheese

Bulgolgi made from local flank steak of course with sticky rice and mac salad (although not as much as last time when we were eating it for a week and a half)

FRIED GREEN TOMATO salad- yeah that’s right, fried and salad in the same sentence- that’s how we roll…

Broccoli Mac and Cheese- kind of our own scaled down version of this one, Gary makes up his own cheese-y delicious sauce.

Broccoli Parmesan Fritters– probably gonna make these on the side of the mac and cheese for a little crunch- Thanks for the suggestion Leslie! Realy can’t go wrong with a smitten kitchen recipe anyways 🙂

Quinoa Swiss Chard Salad– as you may be thinking- she did not buy any chard yesterday at the farmer’s market- that is correct, but never fear, there is plenty of it growing over at the LCH Garden!

Other things I want to try that I saw this week: Oatmeal Cups from Val over at My Imperfect Peace and Quinoa Cookies form Two Peas and Their Pod- both of these looks like they will make excellent snacks and/or breakfasts. YUM!

Peach Bellinis- do yourself a favor and make this!

that pizza looks divine! Thanks for linking up 🙂
