Menu Plan Monday -July 13th

Movies are one of the best parts of summer.  Watching them on TV and going to the theater.  I’ve watched Frost/Nixon, August Rush on TV and seen Public Enemy, The Hang Over and The Proposal.  They are all very different and I enjoyed them all and can recommend them too.  This week is the long awaited Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince hits the big screen July 15th.  I’m very excited to see this book come to life in the movie.

Have you seen any good movies this summer?

Monday – Scallops and Shrimp

Tuesday – Beef Brisket Tamales

Wednesday – Mrs. Weasley’s Bacon Sandwiches, boiled potatoes, onion soup, chocolate frogs and butterbeer

Thursday – leftovers

Friday – Grilled Mahi Mahi and Pineapple

Saturday Buffalo Chicken Burgers

Sunday – Ostrich steaks with mushrooms and onions

This week’s Secret Ingredient for Friday Foodie Fix is Swiss Chard.  I hope you will offer up many recipes this week.

    I have NEVER cooked with Swiss Chard. I have an idea, but I think I am still going to ask our produce guru at work for his recipe recommendations.

      Katrina- I've only cooked with swiss chard once or twice before so this will be new for me too. I'm hoping to get lots of ideas on what to do with my produce from my CSA. Can't wait to see what everyone shares.

    quick question what are chocolate frogs? Just wondering since I have never heard of them before

      Angie- Chocolate frogs are a wonderful candy treat in the wizard world of Harry Potter. They each come with a Famous Wizard Card which is like trading cards. Kids collect and trade them. To find out more about these treats start with Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. For more details into the world of Harry Potter you can always check the Lexicon,

    Swiss chard … hmmm.

    Enjoy your Harry Potter madness! 😉 I haven't seen any movies this summer, but there are several on my "want to see" list … like Food, Inc.; Home; King Korn, and a few others I can't remember the exact names of (just the plots and the actors).

      Shirley- I've only cooked swiss chard once or twice but it's coming in my CSA so I thought I would gather some ideas. Trying to branch out and not just have the secret ingredients be the ones I use all the time. I would really like to go see Food Inc too. I've not found anyone in my house interested yet. I hope to see it before it's gone. Let us know if you go.
