Weekly Shopping List 

     As I finished this weeks menu and recipes I realized that summer cooking tends to involve prep work done in stages; things made ahead to cool, to soak up flavors, etc. Usually the early work only involves 5 or 10 minutes, and, usually, has great flexibility as to the timing.  Like the cucumber salad: between 4 and 10 hours ahead to start.  A little work here and there... easy summer cooking....
Refrigerate avocados if they are ripe early (otherwise, leave them on the counter to ripen)
