Main Course Menu Plan: Week 6  Summer II

Day 1: Grilled Lemon Shrimp (Prawns)

Total time: 15 minutes  longer if you have to clean them
    Use a grill pan (it's like a mesh skillet) or a mat for these, if possible.  Or thread them onto skewers (soaked in water for 15 minutes if wood) to make them easier to turn.  We don't want them falling through the grill.

Day 2: Barbecued Veal Chops

Total time: 20 minutes
   Veal tends to be a mild flavored meat that lend itself well to robust sauces and marinades.  The chops can marinate anywhere from 1 - 8 hours so start the marinade whenever you have a spare 5 minutes.

Day 3: Barbecued Chicken 

Total time: 60 minutes
  As it is assumed people want to do most things for themselves here, we have to buy the whole chicken and cut it up - otherwise we might not get the feet... Get a cut-up chicken or packages of your preferred pieces, freezing what you don't use for another day.

Day 4: Salad with Tuna, Tomatoes and White Beans  

Total time: 25 minutes
   I had these wonderful, heirloom, Ananas Tomatoes for this salad.  They're bright gold with a red center...

Day 5:  Barbecued Pork Chops

Total time: 30 minutes
  Perfectly simple: a quick marinade to add flavor and moisture followed by a quick cooking on the grill.  I used rather thin, boneless chops.

Note:  If you cook it too long pork tends to be dry - unless you cook it really, really long - but that's winter cooking ... this is summer.

Day 6: Warm Turkey and Garlic Pasta Salad

Total time: 35 minutes
    This is based on a Williams-Sonoma recipe.  You'll get plenty of garlic flavor in the simmered stock - so adding the whole cloves to the pasta is optional; just discard after simmering if you choose.  The long, slow cooking does make them rather sweet, though, so you may want to try one!
