Summer Menus: July Week One

JeffreyW makes dill potato salad

I didn’t forget as July began that we needed the first of the month’s menus. But last week my house (and thus my office) was chaotic. I had many, many worker bees doing major energy upgrades, including installing a high efficiency furnace and conditioning the crawl space. The net result so far is my house has been about 10 degrees cooler on the hottest day.

Needless to say, I did not get a lot of work done, so Friday and Saturday were spent catching up. Today I was able to get to the menus.

Tuesday being 4th of July, the recipes are picnic ready and can easily be doubled for a big group. Including a traditional Potato Salad.

JeffreyW’s tasty looking marinated pork chops

I’m counting on a heatwave so the rest of the week is grilling and cold salads. Monday features Marinated Pork Chops and Grilled Pineapple.

Complete shopping lists are here: July Week One Shopping List. Remember they are color coordinated, so it’s easy to eliminate any items if you are skipping a recipe.

The week finishes out with Fajita Steak Salad and Grilled Asparagus.  If you grill the steak the night before (to serve cold), you can broil the asparagus instead of grilling it.

That’s it for this week’s menus. Later today I’ll try and put together a collection of our July 4th recipes we’ve posted over the years.
