Week of August 19th

Out to dinner with out-of-town friends

Hively Stack up

Chicken on the grill (marinated overnight in Italian dressing) with roasted broccoli and quinoa

*Baked BBQ Chicken Taquitos- Kelsey's dinner swap meal. Yum!

*BLT Pita Pockets- Mark and I like to add avocados to our "blah-tas" as we like to call them (BLTAs)

Cari made us Sweet Potato Packets on a night when Mark was away at a baseball game.

Dinner at Becky's for Colter's 1/2 birthday. She made Chipotle Chicken Skewers on the grill. Delish!

Week of August 12th

A couple days in California- Mark's mom made some awesome pork chops on the grill and her famous chicken barley soup (I need to post that recipe!)

*Creamy Tuscan Pasta Sauce- SO fast to throw together.

*Hot Roast Beef Sandwiches- YUM! Reminded me of Arby's hot roastbeef sandwiches. I miss their 5/$5 deal :) If anyone locally makes these, I've got plenty of horseradish sauce to go around. Mark says FIVE STARS!

*Thai Chicken and Quinoa Salad- This salad had awesome dressing and I loved all the different crunchy things going on in the salad!

Dinner at Becky's

*Cuban Street Tacos with homemade guacamole (recipe coming soon)- delicious! (Of course I'm going to say that about any taco recipe, right Ang?)

Weeks of July 29th- August 10th

Homemade Pizza Crust with some of my favorite toppings- ground beef and banana peppers

*Summer Garden Vegetable Soup- needed more salt and pepper added at the end but was scrumptious

Tuna Melts

Dinner out at Chipotle

*Thai Chicken Wraps- this was the perfect recipe for a summer picnic at Greenlake!

Grilled Salmon over the quinoa/rice packets from Costco with roasted broccoli

Grilled Chicken and Roasted Red Pepper Panini- always a homerun. Especially when shared with friends on the deck!

*Skillet Taco Pie- find a friend to split a bag of Masa Harina with or just steal a 1 1/2 from your sister who always has Mel's Kitchen recipe ingredients on hand :)

Off to California!!

Week of July 22nd

This has been the summer of Mel's Kitchen Cafe recipes. That's pretty much where I've been getting all of my recipes lately. Kelsey and I decided to try out Mel's Kitchen Cafe's Summer Menu 1 this week.

All the recipes were good but this is how I would rank them:
1. Honey Lime Fruit Salad
2. Perfect Turkey Burgers with Romaine and Carrot Slaw
3. BBQ Chicken Salad
4. Citrus and Soy Marinated Pork Tenderloin + Guacamole Salad (the salad was phenomenal!)
5. Broccoli Beef
