Weekly Menu: A bit of summer cookin'

The Yellow Farmhouse Weekly Menu Plan
for August 19th thru 25th   

 Notes: The weather has been amazing and the garden is producing tomatoes like crazy. We've been using snatches of time in our days to make small batches of our homemade pickles but we still can't keep up with the cucumbers, so we're bestowing them on friends and family. We're getting loads of eggs now so you'll see more egg using recipes on the menu. We just love it when we sit down to a meal and see that most of it came from our very own garden. This is our last official week of summer before we start school so we're soaking it all in with a trip to the beach, a swim day, a camp-out and some campfire cooking.
New recipe update from last week: That chocolate zucchini bunt cake with cream cheese icing was AMAZING! We are so making that again. Perfect moistness!
From the Farmers Market: 6 zucchini (didn’t have enough on hand- yikes!), 1 quart of peaches
From the Garden: grape tomatoes, yellow pear tomatoes, lots and lots of gorgeous colored, yummy tomatoes, a few squash and zucchini and lots of cucumbers for making pickles.
