this week's menu

By Monday, June 22, 2009 , , , ,

I'm sorry that I haven't posted any recipes listed on last week's menu. It was just one of those weeks. I'll have some recipes to share very soon, but until then, here's what we bought at the market and what we'll be eating this week.

Hot and humid weather has hit Wisconsin and we'll be eating accordingly— light meals with little-to-no oven use. Sunday was Father's Day and Chris requested a molé for his celebratory dinner. Rick Bayless, king of haute Mexican cuisine, never lets us down! It was delicious. The Mexican chocolate ice cream I made would have been delicious too, but I forgot to put the freezer bowl in the freezer since the last time we made ice cream, so we'll be having freshly churned ice cream tonight. Sorry babe!

At the Market:
Baby Romaine
English hothouse cucumber
Early tomatoes
