Main Course Menu Plan: Week 7  Summer I

Day 1: Grilled Barbecued Tuna

Total time: 30 minutes  
    If you get sushi-grade tuna you will definitely want to have this rare (it has to be graded to a higher standard so it is okay to eat raw).  Regular tuna we normally have medium.  We cook a 1 inch (2.5cm) thick piece for 10 minutes on hot charcoal, indirect heat, cover closed.

Note:  A grill basket, skillet or mat makes working with fish easier.

Day 2: Lamb and Vegetable Kebabs with Yogurt Dipping Sauce

Total time: 45 minutes
   It does look nice to have the meat and vegetable on the same skewers - and you can do that if you partially pre-cook the vegetables.  I prefer to do it all on the grill, and, as the different foods have different cooking times, arranging them on the skewers accordingly.  Serve on a bed of Summer Couscous, Minted Sauce on the side.

Day 3: Turkey and Green Bean Pasta Salad

Total time: 25 minutes
      I used Heirloom Tomatoes in the salad, the yellow and red Ananas.

Day 4: Grilled Tarragon Chicken Breasts

Total time: 30 minutes
     Tarragon is a great herb for chicken, and a classic pairing in French cuisine.  When basting with a marinade, stop about 5 minutes before taking the meat off the heat, and turn the meat a final time to make certain the marinade is cooked.

Day 5:  Salad with Sausage, Potatoes and Chevre

Total time: 35 minutes 
   The warm potatoes and sausages melt the creamy goat cheese, coating the lettuce with a flavorful dressing.  Use any flavor sausage you like; I used pork with olives.

Day 6: Chicken and Grilled Pepper Pasta Salad

Total time: 25 minutes
     Grilled chicken and grilled or sautéed vegetables put a new twist on the old 'macaroni' or pasta salads of my childhood. Serve the chicken cut in chunks, mixed with the salad (my choice) or sliced and served on top (mon mari's choice).
