Tonight will be tuna bread salad with beans, tomatoes and olives. The blueberries have been great this year and we have Tahitian Vanilla gelato in the freezer.

  Since we're in the middle of a heat wave, it will be just right.

Last night was pizza with friends. Costco's cheese pizza is pretty good and huge for the price.

Baked rockfish with spinach & green onions in a lemon garlic sauce with a side of roasted zucchini. Not bad for a random assortment of using things in my freezer and crisper.

I'm sick, and as a result, have eaten homemade spicy beef vegetable soup for the last three meals in a row.

Feel better!

My DH made soup and grilled cheese sandwiches for us since yesterday was a terrible day.

Tonight will be enchiladas while DH smokes the homemade bacon on the grill.

Cheeseless "nachos" (spinach, refried beans, spices and nutritional yeast) and garlicky green beans.

We're moving in two weeks, and I'm trying to use up all the bits and weird things in the kitchen.

Homemade bacon? I think we need that recipe!

Last night dinner was a salad, with tomatoes and onions and honey carrot curls (which actually ended up being somewhat reminiscent of bacon!) with a cranberry/honey mustard vinaigrette.* 

Today I'm trying to convince my stomach that it in fact does really want food - so far, I've pretty much just had about 32 oz of blueberry-carrot-peach smoothie made with coconut milk.  I should probably read back over this thread for some better dinner suggestions!

*Side note: I am so proud of myself for finally learning to spell that word correctly the first time.

I had some awesome red skin potato salad I picked up at the deli.  I haven't eaten all week because of the heat..just been living on fruit and popsicles so it was nice to have something a bit more substantial

Beef Stroganoff using Greek Yogurt instead of sour cream. 

Curiosity question.  How many of you use tomato (sauce, soup, etc.) in your stroganoff?  We never did and it always throws me off when I see a recipe for some type of tomato.

Simple cold salad after a trip to the boilingly hot graffiti park: Spinach, cherry tomatoes, black beans, green olives and sweet onion with a garlic-oregano-paprika vinaigrette.
