I don't know where..........

..........the week went. It was busy, busy, busy.

I am so glad to be here at the start of the weekend, so lets get on with the menu!

Salad and Starters:

Cold Curried Orzo, and Cucumber Ribbon salad from the Perfect Pantry.

Chopped Vegetable Salad with Zesty Ranch
from everybody likes sandwiches.

Olives, pickles and such, including deviled eggs.

Main dish:

Chicken Marbella from The Silver Palate Cookbook.

Small Pot Roast of Beef, seared on the grill, and oven finished. Update: they had wonderful Pork roasts at the market, and Honey loves Pork roast gravy. So simply substitute Pork for Beef, and we are on track!

Side dishes:

Mashed potatoes with kale, carrots and roasted red pepper. We cannot get enough of these potatoes and they are a must with that roast.

Sauted summer squash.

Rigatoni with roasted red pepper and crumbs from the Noble Pig.

Platter of sliced tomatoes with homemade pesto drizzle.

Dessert:

Birthday cake, of the chocolate variety.

Rhubarb and Berry pie, from Simply Recipes.

Raisin Cookies with mocha glaze. I loved these cookies and have been wanting to make them again. When I served them I thought at the time, a mocha glaze would be wonderful.

It is time for a shopping list, a second cup of coffee and the map to this location. As always, thanks for taking a moment to stop by.
