Two easy summer menus

How has your summer been?  This past week, I took my girls to Claremont's Family Festival  that takes place in the summer on Wednesday nights.  It's not a big street fair but they had a blast at the petting zoo and big sister loved her pony ride.  After she said, "Run like the wind!' to the slowly walking pony PeeWee, the cowboy cracked up and let her trot for awhile.  I think the picture speaks for itself!

I'm having some trouble with being motivated to plan menus . . . all I want to eat when it's hot is salad and ice cream.  But, last week was an improvement and I made two awesome meals with some favorite recipes from the blog.  So, if you need some inspiration for making dinner, here are two menu ideas.

Teriyaki marinated flank steak on the grill with Soba Noodle Salad and cantaloupe

Chicken Enchiladas with Cilantro Lime Rice and chips & salsa (My mom made these enchiladas recently and used half salsa verde and half enchilada sauce for the sauce and added cooked artichoke hearts  from a frozen package to the filling - delicioso!)
