We will be having our lovely leftover stir-fry for dinner tonight, but I will start this week’s thread for anyone who is cooking today.July 15, 2018 at 3:47 pm #12962

Dinner tonight was salmon and potatoes cooked on the smoker, with broccoli salad.July 16, 2018 at 7:22 pm #12975
I made a new recipe tonight, “Turkey and Zucchini Meat Loaf,” which I found online at Epicurious, attributed to Bon Appetit (September 1998). I made a number of changes, and we really like how it turned out. The glaze, made of the last of my peach jam from two years ago, and Dijon mustard is particularly tasty. As everyone can use yet another zucchini recipe, and peaches will soon be in season, I will post the recipe in the next few days.
We had it with baked potatoes (cooked alongside the meat loaf) and steamed green beans from our garden.

Made a stir fry tonight.July 16, 2018 at 9:02 pm #12977
Tonight I roasted fresh salmon and had it asparagus and pasta salad. Followed by a bit of watermelon. The melon was only fair.July 17, 2018 at 2:44 pm #12982
I’ve posted the Turkey and Zucchini loaf as “Turkey and Zucchini Meatloaf with Peach-Dijon Mustard Glaze” in the recipe section. I’m sure that you can vary it with other spices–and perhaps even a different glaze–if you so desire.July 17, 2018 at 4:09 pm #12985
Left overs here tonight,chicken,peas & okra,butter beans,potato salad and corn bread.July 17, 2018 at 6:47 pm #12986
We had breakfast sausage links and blueberry pancakes with maple syrup, the “dark and robust” grade. Yummy. I use the KAF recipe for Simply Perfect Pancakes, but use buttermilk instead of milk, and add a tablespoon of cinnamon and a tablespoon of vanilla. I use the sugar and not the malted milk powder option.July 17, 2018 at 7:17 pm #12987
We had leftover turkey loaf, steamed green beans from our garden, and sweet corn, straight from the evening’s farmers’ market.July 17, 2018 at 8:03 pm #12988

Sirloin steak with some steamed broccoli tonight.July 18, 2018 at 8:06 pm #12997
My husband was supposed to do hamburgers on the grill, but he declared it too hot, so he cooked them on the stove (and did a better job of it than I did on Independence Day). We ate them on split pieces of the Blitz Bread, which went very well. This hamburger from the farmers’ market has great flavor. We added sliced tomato and a slice of Gouda cheese, and I had onion as well. We served it with sweet corn and steamed green beans from our garden.July 18, 2018 at 8:30 pm #13001
Chicken thighs on the grill, with the last of the broccoli salad, a Greek style salad with tomatoes, cukes, and onion, and a green salad from the garden.July 19, 2018 at 9:12 am #13002
I think I found the perfect chicken satay with peanut sauce recipe. I was going through ” stuff” trying to declutter (not very successfully) and came upon the Holiday 2011 edition of the Baking Sheet. I just happened upon the satay recipe and gave it a try. The peanut sauce and marinade were both excellent. Another keeper I’m afraid.July 19, 2018 at 9:16 am #13003
Correction to chicken satay recipe. It was found in the summer 2010 edition of The Baking sheet.July 19, 2018 at 9:42 am #13004
One more thing . If you go to KA’s site there is a thai peanut salad recipe with the peanut sauce recipe. One reviewer found the sauce to be thick. I used cheap coconut milk from the dollar store and it was thin and perfect for this sauce.July 20, 2018 at 7:43 pm #13008
Friday dinner was Panko-Parmesan Coated boneless chicken breasts. I omitted the garlic and just used onion powder, chives, and pepper in the coating. We had it with cut-up roasted potatoes, rubbed in olive oil, then sprinkled with poultry seasoning and a bit of sweet curry. The potatoes are roasted for 30 minutes at 400F before the chicken breasts are added and the temperature dropped to 375F. I used russet potatoes because I needed to use them up. They were fine, but I prefer the thin-skinned potatoes for this recipe.
We had steamed green beans from the garden.

Not much cooking happening with this heat, but we have rain and storms predicted for every day next week, starting after midnight tonight. Tonight we had burgers on the grill, and yesterday morning before the temps went up I made salads: pasta-veggies, seafood, cole slaw, tossed green salad, and olive rolls from the freezer.July 21, 2018 at 7:29 pm #13016
Tonight we had tomato soup with Cheez-its floating in it,one of my favorites.
