Wow! This week seems to have just rocketed by! Hoping the weekend goes by slowly. The kids seem to be settled into the school routine already and I’ve managed to keep myself busy in their absence. Not that it’s all that difficult to do so. I seem to get more work done when there is no one else around. Is it that way with you too?
I spent most of my week canning. I put up pickles, pears in apple juice, watermelon rind pickles and yesterday I put up some salsa. Went to the farmer’s market this morning and bought 2 more bags of pears. Going to put up some spiced pears, as my mother hinted that those might be something she’d be interested in having. 🙂 Not sure what else will get put in the canner this week. You just never know!
It’s supposed to be a warm, OK a HOT week here in the Midwest, so I’m trying to keep the cooking simple. Don’t want to heat up the house too much and I really don’t want to be standing over a hot grill during the hottest part of the day. This got me thinking about things I could cook early in the day and serve cold, or things that could be done done without much heat at all.
This lead to a nice selection of grilled sandwiches and salads and a couple of grilled dishes. I’m getting hungry just thinking about them! So why wait? Here’s what’s on Momma T’s Table this week!
