As we enter the 4th of July weekend, I am looking forward to a weekend of cooking. I’m headed into visit my parents and have two meals planned, a birthday lunch for my Aunt Barbara and a belated Father’s Day dinner for my Dad.
I was hoping to use the produce delivery for inspiration and it was only so-so … some melons, sweet potatoes, cute little green eggplant, and more (see below), but I was hoping for other items. And, the extra heirloom tomatoes I ordered were given to someone else.
Below are the likely menus for this weekend, but subject to change based on ingredients, guest’s tastes, and my whims.
Melon with prosciutto
Salmon with garlic and ginger and stone fruit slaw
Thai Cucumber salad
Corn- tomato sauté
Almond berry cake
Green salad with goat cheese, dried cherries, nuts in a balsamic dressing
Lamb grilled with rosemary and Dijon
Roasted white and sweet potatoes
Parmesan green beans
Roasted mixed peppers peppers
Have a great holiday!
