On the menu this week we have  crab cakes, stuffed zucchini, srambled egg and cheese melts, chicken enchiladas, BLT pita pockets and grilled chicken. What's on your menu?

Since it is going to be a little cooler this week, I will be batch cooking some dishes in the oven. I don’t like to run the oven on the hotter summer days but this week is a perfect time to make some batch meals. Then I will have a number of meals I can easily reheat in the microwave during those really scorching days.




Crab cakes (From The Meat House in Cary using a Twongo deal offered a month ago)

Stuffed Zucchini (zucchini on sale at HT for .79/lb through 6/14) Click HERE for the recipe.

Tomato and cucumber salad


I’m working late so hubby is in charge of turkey sandwiches using the Buy 2 Get 3 Free deli meat and cheese deal at Harris Teeter through 6/14

Pasta salad

Peach slices (peaches on sale everywhere: .77/lb at HT through 6/14)


Scrambled egg and cheese melts using .99/dozen eggs from Lowes Foods Fresh Rewards deal good through 6/14. I am making it healthier by using skim milk (instead of half and half) and veggie bacon (instead of regular bacon). Click HERE for the recipe.

Fruit salad
