August Monthly Menu

Oops! I mean to get this up a couple of days ago but then we went on a little overnight up the canyon and I forgot. I don't know why, but planning August's menu took me a little bit longer than usual. If I'm really efficient, I can whip up a menu in a day or 2 (that's with normal interruptions from every day life with kids), but this time it took me twice that.

Since the local produce stands are going to be booming here pretty soon, I wanted to take advantage of all the fresh fruits and vegetables I'm sure I will be hoarding. I tried to find recipes with a lot of fresh ingredients, or ones that would also help me clean some things out of the freezer. I'm expecting my menu may change near the end of the month, depending on my farmer's market finds, but I have some swap-outs that I've also tentatively planned just in case.

If you're new here, I have linked the recipes that I have made before and posted. The other recipes I will post throughout the month as I make them. If you see something that catches your eye, don't forget to stop back and check out the recipe later on.
