    I’ve done pretty well with my pantry challenge, and using up what we have on hand. But we still have an abundance of food, and I’d like to continue using mostly what we have on hand. I’d like to do some baking but it’s been crazy hot – all of my baking has been done in the toaster oven, and will continue to be until at least the middle of this week. They’re saying “cooldown” on the news, but I’m not sure it’s going to be enough! Here’s my plan for the week:

    Monday – Pasta Puttanesca, Sauteed Zucchini

    Tuesday – Clam Chowder, Artisan Bread

    Wednesday – Roast Chicken, Garlic Sauce, Sauteed Green Beans

    Thursday – Mexican “pie,” avocado and mango salsa

    Friday – Turkey & Cheese Paninis, Zucchini Gratin

    Saturday – ??? (not sure what our plans are yet)

    Sunday – Dinner out
