Definitely not summery here tonight - low 60s and very damp. I'm rethinking dinner and envisioning a casserole with baby lima beans (happen to have 1 lb in the fridge from the weekend's bean rehydrating), sausage gimme lean, zucchini, & tomatoes. I think it could work. I'm still making the kamatsuna with tahini lemon sauce on the side though

Leftovers - or rather "plan overs" tonight. I did three pork steaks on the BBQ last night and extra veggies. I just cooked some spelt and dried red peppers and onions in veggie stock. I'll add chopped up veggies and add them along with the pork cut in strips to make a pilaf. That should do me three meals - one for tonight with a salad and two servings for the freezer stash! I'll have a lovely green salad with it and some fresh raspberries.

I finally had time to cook up the chard that's been languishing in the fridge, and had it with cannelini beans and shaved parmesan. I ate at Cindy's on Monday night, and got home too late last night to eat, so I was looking forward to this.

Tonight we're having leftover Herb Marinated Chicken, salad, broccoli and leftover Rice-a-Roni (for the kids). I don't know what dessert will be but it will be something legal.

It's on menu to have whole wheat spaghetti and salad but it may only be my daughter and I tonight so who knows. If all else fails, we'll have that and freeze the rest for my son that's staying home while we're away next week.
