Summer is winding down. The days are getting shorter, but we’re still feeling the summer heat. Hot weather through September, and even into October, is not unusual for us. The wine grape harvest is in full swing in central California, and the harvesting equipment and grape trucks are running up and down our country road at all hours of the day and night. We’ve lived in the country for thirteen years, but watching the grape harvesting equipment as it passes by our house has never lost its appeal. We love it!
This week’s menu reflects the busy season we’re in and the fact that summer often means “fun” food. We have a birthday to celebrate this week, and Dani and Aaron will be taking a class together one evening a week through the fall, so Wednesday dinners need to be fast, easy and early!
As always, be sure to click on over and visit our hostess, Laura, for this week’s Menu Plan Monday.
