Grilled chicken thighs that were marinated in basil-balsamic vinaigrette, and zucchini noodles sautéed in homemade tomato-basil sauce.

All of these grilled dinners sound yum. Tonight was homemade pizza here. It's so hard not to eat it all!

I'm roasting a spatchcocked chicken with homegrown carrots underneath it.  Chicken is rubbed with lots of garlic sauce and tarragon, then adorned with thin lemon slices and a generous showering of Aleppo pepper.  On the side, jicama pickleback slaw with some daikon, snow peas, red pepper, carrot and shredded cabbage thrown in for color and texture.

I'll be over in just a few, OK?  Because that sounds amazing!

We had fast-n-dirty nicoise salad: potatoes and green beans, cooked and sliced and dressed with a basil/parsley vinaigrette, topped with anchovies (from a can), random olives, capers, tomatoes that I sliced and dressed with olive oil, salt, and aleppo peppers so they could deepen their flavor a bit, and two cans of tuna. And hard-boiled eggs that I remembered to throw into the pot with the potatoes, and put a timer on, so I only got one pot dirty from all of this.

I made a curried chickpea shepard's pie last night.  I suspect that will be leftovers for the next day or so since curry is never a hit with the rest of the family.  I guess they'll have frozen pizza or something.

Mexican black beans with street corn and shredded chicken all simmering in the slow cooker.  We'll either eat it with tortillas, on top of salad, or scooped up with corn chips depending on the person.  The best part is no messy cooking at dinnertime. :-)

Stir-fry of marinated tofu, cauliflower, carrots, scallions, and the first of our homegrown shishito peppers. Haven't decided whether to serve it over rice or noodles.

We got beets, kohlrabi, and fennel bulbs in our CSA box this week, so trying to think of something to do with these. Maybe a soup recipe? If all else fails we can just roast 'em all, probably on the grill to avoid heating up the house.

Breakfast for dinner - pancakes, scrambled eggs, pineapple.  I forgot to defrost things, and it's grocery day tomorrow.  The pickings are slim other than frozen pizza or Indian food....We're having a pizza party Friday and Indian dinner at a neighbors on Thursday. Breakfast it is!  I may ask everyone to put on their PJs in honor of this.

Edit - someone already ate the pineapple....so it's canned pears made into a compote for dinner and waffles instead of pancakes.  Someone also ate a bunch of eggs at some point this afternoon, so it's a single fried egg per person for dinner.  Oh, and the bacon I had planned also got eaten by a teenager sometime between lunch and now. Seriously - a whole POUND of bacon is gone. That's what I get for precooking it to just "reheat" for dinner. So it's turkey bacon for dinner. Let the whining about turkey bacon begin in my house.  TEENAGERS will eat almost anything you leave prepped around, but I bet they wouldn't have eaten the turkey bacon.

I was only gone for 1.5 hours.  LOL.  I was not there to defend my meal. In all fairness to the ravenous teens, I really need to get to the grocery store.

I prefer kohlrabi and fennel raw, so I'd cut them into pieces and make salads (two separate ones: I'd dress the kohlrabi with lemon and olive oil and salt, and add apples and/or oranges with the fennel) and roast the beets. YMMV, depending on how you prefer things.

I'm partly through making chili (it cooled off here today, yippee!), which will probably be nachos. Or we'll serve with corn tortillas and slaw and fresh corn which just arrived from our farm delivery.

I have a large flatiron steak, so I sliced it thin and half is marinating with Mexican seasonings for beef fajitas with lots of summer squash as tonight's dinner.

The other half is marinating in fish sauce, ginger, garlic, sambal, lime juice and sesame oil for a beef larb tomorrow.

I made a tofu, egg, pepper and onion stir fry with peanut sauce. Served over roasted cabbage and rice.
I feel pretty accomplished considering I'm feeding a pescatarian, someone who eats limited vegetables, and someone who eats limited carbs right now.

Dinner tonight - is a twist on a nicoise salad:

Bed of greens and a layer of barley/whole red lentil mix then topped with green beans, potatoes, tomatoes, and canned tuna.

My slow cooker recipe last night was a fail. Given how much work it was to prep (not normally, just because we don't have a kitchen at the moment), it was doubly disappointed. It was very bland. I'll attempt to doctor it ahead of leftover time.

For today, we'll be having taco salads.

May I just say how much, this time of year, I love dinners that are "the idea of a nicoise salad"?
Standard (potatoes, green beans, tomatoes, olives, capers, anchovies, tuna, hard boiled eggs, homemade basil/parsley vinagrette)
"German" (potatoes, cooked cabbage, sliced grilled sausage, capers, , maybe eggs, sourkruat, apple cider vinaigrette)
"beef" (potatoes, cooked green veg, tomatoes, something pickled, hb eggs, probably homemade green goddess dressing)

Obviously, I like potatoes, but that's not a limitation: something starchy, something green and cooked, some other vegetables, something pickled, some kind of protein, some dressing. Everything's served in one giant bowl, and it's all delicious. Most of it isn't hot, but it needn't be cold -- I can cook the eggs/potatoes/vegetables earlier in the day, dress them, and they can hang out for dinner.

The beef larb came out sooo good.  Quick and easy, chopping up the veggies while the beef cooked, added in kelp noodles, and then tossed in the raw dressed veggies and it was all good to go.

Tomorrow I think I'll make zucchini "crab" cakes because I have zucs piling up like cordwood, and my pound of Old Bay arrived (apparently there was a shortage(?) and I couldn't find any locally).  I'll do a dill sour cream to drizzle on them, and blistered sugar snap peas on the side.

Tonight’s dinner will include this recipe for crisped chickpeas with herbs and garlic yogurt, over sautéed zucchini as recommended. I might also make a small batch of stuck-pot rice with lentils and yogurt.

Last night was a party with neighbors - No making dinner.  (Outside, social distancing, but way too many people.)
Tonight is pizza for vegan friends on the deck - No making dinner!
Tomorrow night is another party with neighbors - No making dinner!!

I feel almost pre-COVID this week.  It's surreal. No nothing for ever so long and then 3 social activities in one week. Granted the bubble of the neighbors is pretty darn insulated since we're all here together anyway.

Tonight’s dinner will include this recipe for crisped chickpeas with herbs and garlic yogurt, over sautéed zucchini as recommended. I might also make a small batch of stuck-pot rice with lentils and yogurt.

This sounds fabulous @OtherJen - did it turn out?

Thanks for posting this! We also made this and it was super tasty. I slightly burned the chickpeas (they took forever to brown and then went from brown > black in an instant) but it was still super tasty. I cooked the chickpeas from dry in the instant pot and made extra so I'll probably turn that into hummus tomorrow- we got snap peas, broccoli, and carrots in our CSA that'll work well for dipping :)

If you're looking for another zucchini/summer squash recipe, these are really tasty: https://www.bonappetit.com/recipe/zucchini-lentil-fritters-with-lemony-yogurt

We made them last week and are planning on making them again tonight, but this time we're going to try baking them in the oven, which was suggested in some of the reviews as working pretty well.

Had fried/baked perch dredged in egg and flour, along with fried potatoes, roast zuchini and coleslaw. Have enough left over will have fish sandwiches for dinner. I only got the perch because they were out of the fish I was going to buy, and it was the least expensive fish. But me and the kids really enjoyed it, so will look out for it more often.

The roast zuchinni is really easy: place 1/2" or thicker slices of zucchini on an oiled sheet: sprinkle with salt and pepper, and grate some parmesan cheese on top. Place in preheated oven and roast till a little brown on top but still firm.

Last night -- we hit the farmer's market yesterday, and a neighbor gave us a container of homemade pesto. So I made fresh linguini, and we had it with the pesto, loads of fresh green beans, and also fresh sweet corn.

Tonight: Grilled pork chops, baked sweet potatoes, cooked greens with lots of garlic. There may be adobo sauce involved, and there may or may not be additional baked yukon golds so we can try to have some leftovers. Some sweet thing, probably.

We caved & did takeout last night. No kitchen + no water (temporarily, now back) was enough to push me to the limit. Tonight I'll try to liven up the Thai peanut chicken dish I made that was super bland. We'll serve it with fried rice (leftovers) for the carb eaters. And, caprese salad with tomatoes & basil from the garden.

I found a couple of thick slices of turkey in the freezer. I had fresh asparagus, carrots and sugar snap peas on hand. I decided to try fried rice for the first time ever. I read through a couple recipes on the internet and cobbled the dish together based on what I had on hand (eggs, scallions, ginger, garlic, lime, fish sauce, sesame oil, a little brown sugar - oh, and some frozen peas for good measure). I grilled the veggies and cubed turkey. I made brown rice in the IP, chilled it in the freezer, then I fried it on my griddle, as I don't have a wok or an over sized frying pan. Mixed it all up and boom, it was dinner! I was planning on leftovers, but my men chowed it all down. I'm trying to postpone grocery shopping for another week, so I was thrilled to come up with something family-pleasing out of random things I had on hand.

Yeah, they're really tasty. We harvested our first cucumber from the garden yesterday so we made tzatziki instead of the lemony yogurt and it was delicious! We also tested the oven method which works well, there was a little sticking but it wasn't too bad. 400 degrees for 35-40 minutes, flip halfway through. Definitely easier than standing over a hot stove to deep fry!
