Menu 2015: July 20-August 2

Life has been crazy busy as of late and our summer is flying by at break-neck speeds! I haven't been doing very well at writing up and/or sticking to menus at the moment. We've done a lot of subs and a few nights of pizza. We've cooked in the grill as much as possible on the hot days so we don't overwork the AC. Since it's summer and we've been doing some more work on the house we're trying to sell, there has been lots of travel, which accounts for some of the missing menus. However, I did at least get the next two weeks written down so I thought I'd share. :)

July 20-26
  • Breakfast Skillet (hashbrowns, veggies, smoked sausage, cheese, and eggs)
  • Bacon-wrapped pork loin, cheesy potato casserole, and steamed green beans
  • Brats/hot dogs, and veggies
  • Grilled chicken and pasta salad
  • Chicken enchiladas and fruit salad
  • Subs, fruit, and chips
July 27-August 2
  • Meatloaf, roasted potatoes, and steamed veggies
  • Pulled pork and slaw, BBQ beans, and fruit
  • Pizza, fresh fruit, and salad
  • Grilled chicken and citrus Berry kale salad
  • Spaghetti, glazed carrots, a side salad, and garlic bread

[Gluten Free] Blueberry Lemon Zucchini Cake with Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting

[Gluten Free] Blueberry Lemon Zucchini Cake
with Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting
It's blueberry season around the midwest and zucchini season will be here soon enough. I know I need to finish using up the stuff that is in the freezer from last season as I'll have to make room for this year's harvest. Now, I should probably tell you that I adore anything with lemon - pies, puddings, cakes, etc. I don't think I've ever tried something lemon without loving it. With that in mind, when several of my friends posted a link to I am Baker's blueberry zucchini cake with lemon buttercream on Facebook I knew that I needed to try it.
