Sauteed zucchini, squash and onions

Pasta salad



BBQ chicken in the slow cooker




Spinach salad with leftover chicken on it

I think I am taking the girls on a day trip to the beach so we may just have sandwiches that I take from home.

    My favorite pasta salad recipe is: Rainbow spiral pasta, 1 can kidney beans (15.5 oz.) drained & rinsed, 16 oz. frozen mixed veggies (w/ green beans, carrots, corn - sometimes you can find it w/ lima beans; which is good), 1 fresh green pepper diced, 1 medium red onion diced. The dressing is homemade: 1/2 cup vinegar, 1/2 cup olive oil, 3/4 cup sugar, salt & pepper. This is a very colorful & delicious salad!

    thank you Faye. I love to cook and planning my meals helps me stay on track. I try to do at least one new entree a week to keep the versatility. This week it will be the crusted salmon and asparagus w/poached egg. Thankfully my ideas usually turn out well, but we shall see :)

    Nakabi - I just love reading your meal plan - so creative and your meals sound delicious!

    msgooch - I usually use a tri color pasta or shells, a variety of veggies including green and/or red peppers, grape tomatoes, green or vidalia onions, canned mushrooms and black olives. Then I use a combination of light mayo and light sour cream for the dressing. I've used this same recipe for a million years and the kids and hubby love it.
