Week 586 Weekly Menu

Reports are starting to come in…my friend Mindy made fresh masa tortillas the day after I published my post and my eye doctor made them yesterday, using masa from the same market where I buy masa. Both Mindy and Dr. Hom are converted. I promise I’m not exaggerating about how delicious fresh masa tortillas are…if you haven’t read my fresh masa post, here’s a link!

Weekly dinner menu for the week of July 23, 2018: BBQ Chicken, Pesto Pasta, BLTs and then traveling to Boston and Cape Cod

Enough tortilla talk, time for this week’s menu…which is a bit shorter for us because we leave Thursday for our east coast trip! A Toyota Highlander will be waiting for us when we land in Boston and this time we’ll hang out for a day in Boston before heading to Cape Cod. I can’t wait to show my kids our college town!

Everything on this week’s menu was on last week’s menu…I didn’t cook as much as I thought I would last week, and I really stretched out the carnitas for a few meals.

– Grilled BBQ Chicken
– Salad

– Pesto Pasta
