Menu Plan for the week of August 23, 2013:  Sunday's Recipes

Pork, Chard and Mushroom Quiche
Tomato Salad

Cooking time:  60 minutes for menu 30 minute break       Cooking schedule: see below for instructions

      Use leftover, sliced pork for this.  We'll use more goat cheese next week - it's noted on the Shopping List. You can make the rice earlier in the day. If you have Tomato Salad left - just serve it every night 'till gone.

Chard and Mushroom Quiche

Total time: 60 minutes 
   The chard is quickly sautéed, mainly to help it fit into the quiche dish.  You can use sautéed chicken breasts, leftover pork; chevre or Brie.  This is a very flexible recipe.

 Instructions:Chard and Mushroom Quiche

Note: When baking quiches or tarts, I put the dish on a sturdy baking tray, before pouring in the egg mixture, for easier handling. The dish can get very full.

Tomato Garlic Salad 

Total time: 10 minutes 
   I prefer to make this with cherry or grape tomatoes (from my garden) but any, fresh, vine-ripened tomato will work.  I make it on Sunday, we have some every night and I just add more tomatoes to it all week as they ripen, - starting fresh whenever we finish it all...
