What's Cooking - August 22nd Edition

This summer we've all experienced record setting high temperatures, and for longer periods than in the past. I am thrilled to report, that in my area of North Texas it has finally started to cool down a bit.


I've been spending more time with Fred outside in the sunshine, and we've been busy catching up on our sidewalk (and driveway) chalk art. This little man of mine loves to play with colors. And his momma couldn't be more happy!

This week, we got an AWESOME load of produce in our co-op basket. Hooray! We received strawberries, plums, peaches, pears, grapes, cantelope, romaine lettuce, corn, tomatoes, and broccoli.  This week I also took advantage of the option of purchasing a 30lb bag of Hatch Green Chile peppers. (I'm a Hatch Chile Pepper fan - in a HUGE way!)

So, as you can imagine, I'm planning to be eating a LOT of chile peppers this week. 

Sunday: Hatch Chile Pesto Pasta (This is the Pesto recipe I used since CM stopped sharing this recipe. Their loss. This is a KEEPER!)
Monday: Hatch Macaroni & Cheese with grilled brats or hotdogs
Tuesday: Naked Chicken Nuggets, oven fries, steamed broccoli
Wednesday: Chicken Enchiladas (with chile sauce!), roasted corn, cilantro rice and peach cobbler
Thursday: Leftovers or green salad with broiled salmon
Friday: Grilled chicken with peach bbq sauce and pasta (or green salad)
Saturday: Black Bean Nacho's with Hatch Green Chile Queso
Sunday: Chicken Burrito Bowls with chiles instead of jalapeno's

What are you cooking this week?
