This week's menu- can't stand the heat, keepin' out of the kitchen

The Yellow Farmhouse Weekly Menu Plan
for July 15th thru 21st   

 Notes: The heat is back and it’s packing a punch. The kitchen temp is currently 85 degrees. Bleh.... We're cooking on the grill and using the crockpot as much as possible.  Also- we've got some leftovers we’re working our way through for lunch this week- hence a week of “diner dinners”. 
New recipe update from last week: Menu plan got revamped last week so the new recipe from last Sunday has moved to this week.
From the Farmers Market: 2 greenhouse tomatoes, 2 cucumbers, 1 pint yellow pear tomatoes, 1 sweet onion, an 8x8 pan of raspberry cream cheese cinnamon rolls (total treat!).
I visited a 2nd farmer's market last week and loved it. Hoping to go to another different one this week. Our market here in our little village is a tiny and I just love me a big sprawling, food hawking, craft gawking, baked goods inhaling market. The one I went to last week had live music- a very nice touch.
From the Garden: We picked more raspberries- yum!
And 2 dozen pullet eggs from our lovely ladies.
Food wasted last week: Approx. two chopped peaches from the back of the fridge. 2  tubes of refrigerated biscuits exploded into a goo mess. The peaches are going to the chickens, the goo mess was a waste.
