Menu Plan Monday for August 22 – 26

August 22, 2011 at 11:17 am Leave a comment

The weather has been fabulous here the past several days. It’s been wonderfully cool. The low temperature has been in the 60’s, and the high temperature has been in the low 70’s. After 90-degree temperatures the past several weeks, and the constant, scathing sunshine, this is pure heaven. Unfortunately, it’s supposed to start heating up again tomorrow, but it’s been a lovely break.

It’s like a teaser for fall, but I’m so ready for the real thing! I’m tired of constantly sweating. It’s just no fun to be constantly sweating, you know? But that’s Japanese summers. People carry around little hand towels with them all the time to wipe off sweat. Those of you who think it gets humid in Oklahoma? You don’t know humidity until you’ve experienced a Japanese summer. Of course we haven’t been having 100+ degree temperatures every day for the past two months like in Oklahoma. That’s no fun either. Bring on the fall!!

Menu Plan for August 22 – 26:

Quiche and tossed salad

Niku-dofu (Japanese simmered beef and tofu), steamed rice, miso soup, simmered kabocha (Japanese pumpkin)

Ratatouille and fresh bread

Inari-zushi, simmered kabocha, miso soup, salad

Spaghetti Carbonara with zucchini and fresh green beans
