A Week of Summer Menus

Summer menus should get you through the week without turning the oven on, except for Sunday's biscuits; take advantage of all the goodies at Farmer's Market; and still fill all the hollow legs in the house. But far be it from me to be dogmatic! We're having:

Grilled salmon; butter lettuce salad; fried okra; corn on the cob.

Lettuce wraps filled with stir-fried pork, julienned carrots and cucumbers, and a ginger dipping sauce; brown rice; sauteed yellow squash, fruit cups with strawberries and raspberries.

Cold angel-hair pasta with shredded chicken breasts, carrots, and an orange-vinaigrette dressing; sauteed broccolini; watermelon.

Salade Nicoise (giant platters of salad with tuna, steamed new potatoes, steamed green beans, tomatoes, cucumber, olives); corn on the cob; French bread.

Stir-fried Japanese noodles with pork and Napa cabbage; fried okra (I know: we're Southern and it's okra season!); romaine salad.

Grilled bratwurst; grilled mixed vegetables (eggplant, zucchini, and more); crusty bread; green salad; sliced peaches.

Pot roast; mashed potatoes; stir-fried asparagus; green salad; raspberry jello with raspberries; biscuits.

Can you do more of these? I'm curious as to what you eat on a daily basis. I am curious as to what most people eat...always searching for ideas!
