Weekly Menu 6/27-7/3

So how was everyone’s weekends?? I hope there was sun and warm weather and that your were not plagued with any yucky allergies. Josh and I have been fighting them off with boxes of kleenex and meds and it works and it doesn’t. Friday was pure awfulness for me. I sneezed and blew my nose the entire day and I tried to not itch my eyes to much, because it sucks when you do.

The weekend we stopped by the Farmer’s Markets and had a blast. We picked up some Snap Peas, Rhubarb, Asparagus, and radishes. The colors of the produce are so vivid and beautiful, and the prices so affordable. Josh and I are already making plans to go every Saturday that he has off. It’s just wayy to much fun!

Tonight we made some Fish Tacos and they were so incredible!!! We only took finished product pictures and I tried to convince Josh just to use those to blog them, but he enjoyed the whole cooking process so much that he really wants to take picture for everyone to see and enjoy. We had a lot of fun making the dish together. And for dessert, I made The Pioneer Woman’s Raspberry Crisp and OH MY GOSH, it was incredible!!! Josh can’t stop talking about it and my girls cleaned their bowls. I did take some pictures, but alas, as I started working with the berries, I discovered some were going bad, which badly depleted my stash. So instead of 2 1/2 cups I ended up with about 1 1/2 cups of Raspberries. But the Crisp was truly a masterpiece. So I will make it again and blog it for sure.

Ginger Shrimp and Snap Peas with Steamed rice- We came across this recipe when we bought this beautiful stainless steel grill mesh pan and we’ve been excited to use it!
Grilling Hot Dogs and maybe some fresh fruit…if it doesn’t rain
Homemade Pizza- We didn’t make it last weekend…
Honey Ginger Chicken Stir Fry with Steamed Rice, we might be adding a few new ingredients ;)
Beef Burgers With Peanut Chipolte BBQ Sauce
Oriental Chicken Salad…with some sort of bread side…not sure yet.
Not really sure…we all know I like to leave Sunday’s pretty much open
Just a heads up everyone, Josh’s grandparents who are missionaries and founders of The African Bible College, will be in town all next week, and when they are here, we like to spend a lot of time with them since we only see them for about a week during the summer. Usually we spend every evening over there and that means we have dinner there. So I’ll make sure I have back up meals here, but I’m sure we’ll be there. 

I’m going to experiment with some rhubarb this week. The Pioneer Woman did a post on it last week and it looked incredible, so I’m feeling brave…Rhubarb Cobbler, here I come!
My mom’s Peanut Butter & Butterscotch Crispies for Josh’s lunch….Not sure if this is a recipe I have permission to blog or not…I hope so, because it’s so good :)

And I just came across this recipe today and now I’m dying to make it Blueberry Crumb Bars! I have
2 lbs of blueberries sitting in my fridge just begging to be used in this recipe!

Can you all believe 4th of July is next week?! It just blows my mind!
