Saturday: Chicken salad with mandarin oranges, almonds, and soy-ginger dressing This turned out well. The key ingredient was definitely the dressing I made: 1/2 cup rice vinegar, 1/2 tbsp soy sauce, 1-2 tbsp sesame oil, fresh grated ginger.
Saturday evening we visited some neighbors for whom we do garden watering while they're on vacation, and they gave us a bunch of produce! They gave us sweet peas, celery, basil, parsley, cilantro, dill...What a blessing! The Lord always provides! And in a couple of weeks, they're going on a week-long trip, so we're free to harvest a bit of whatever ripens while they're gone (or else it'll go bad anyway). There should be some more celery, a few potatoes, and a few tomatoes. Yum!
Sunday: Casserole with potatoes and summer veggie (squash?) This didn't turn out so well. Somehow I messed up the bechamel sauce halfway through (I still can't figure it out) and then put too much sauce in the casserole dish, and the zucchini didn't cook all the way. I'm thinking of adding some ham and re-baking it.
Tuesday: Tomato soup...maybe with grilled cheese!
Wednesday: Fajita burritos
Hooray for flexibility!
