Plans for an outdoor picnic

My dad is coming this weekend to see Tom Jones at the Ravinia festival! I’ll put a bunch of food together for the picnic, and we’ll have fish tacos on Friday night. It will be really simple: just grill the ingredients and set them out on the picnic table. Sounds like a relaxing weekend to me!

Saturday: Spring Pea Risotto with chicken sausage

Sunday: Panzanella

Monday: Tuscan zucchini pasta & Simple Grilled Shrimp

Tuesday: Plans with friends, meeting at Goose Island

Wednesday: Scallion soup, grilled mozzarella & tomato sandwiches

Thursday: I’m going out with a friend; Hubby will eat something out of the freezer

Friday: Salmon tacos with beans and rice, butterscotch bananas

Saturday Breakfast: Breakfast casserole.

Saturday Lunch: Grilled mozzarella & tomato sandwiches

Saturday: Malnatti’s (a bit of a guilty pleasure…cheating? Definitely!);Bulgar salad-with peas and green beans--asparagus season is over but the peas and beans are just ready to harvest. Will leave out the eggs and the walnuts;Cheese and crackers. Dad likes Brie with raspberries and my garden is looking ready to oblige! Giada’s chocolate honey almond tart (without the crust, depending on what the graham cracker label says)

Sunday: Leftover breakfast casserole and picnic food for breakfast and lunch; maybe a pizza on the grill for dinner.
