Menu Plan Monday -- Summer food ideas

Still unpacking, and still learning the lay of the land.  I feel a bit out of sorts not having a garden anymore.  I'd be getting ready to can or pick at my garden every day.  I'm considering volunteering at some of the local farms here.  They say they always need capable hands, and I need my zen.  I miss gardening.

Well, for the menu this week we're going to be doing some of our summer favorites.  We don't own a grill, but I have a pan that mimics a grill, so we'll be grilling some local grown chicken legs this week.  I bought a new camera last week, and hopefully it will be delivered tomorrow, so maybe I'll get some really nice pictures of stuff to share this week too.  Well,'s our food for this week.

Monday: Gazpacho with home made bread and cream cheese.
Tuesday: Grilled Chicken and home made coleslaw.
Wednesday: Tomatoes au Gratin (p. 242 Preserving Summer's Bounty)
Thursday: Spaghetti (with homemade fresh tomatoes)
Friday: Homemade pizza with fresh tomato sauce, and fresh basil
Saturday: Shrimp on a stick and corn on the cob!
Sunday: Grilled Salmon and rice

I am also getting a watermelon to chop up and share with the family this week.  It's supposed to be a beautiful temperate week here in Boulder, so I think lots of outdoor trips to the park, and "pseudo beach" are called for.
