Menu Plan: 7/24 – Kebab… Kabob… ???


And with that, our heat wave has ended!  With a low of 59 for the forecast tonight, we have nothing to complain about.  And, really, I wasn’t complaining even in the throes of it.  Here in Connecticut, our heat wave amounted to 3 or 4 days of very hot temperatures… hardly comparable to the 3+ WEEKS that some parts of the country have been dealing with.  So, when life handed me oppressive heat, I decided to prepare an entire lunch in our minivan.  That’s right- sun tea, cheese & bean tortillas, and fried (really, baked) eggs.  So fun for the kids and a great way to celebrate the heat!

With lower temps on the horizon, I have no dashboard meals planned.  Here’s what’s hittin’ our table:


B-Cereal, Applesauce, Milk
L-Biscuits, Fried Eggs, Mixed Fruit
D-Sunday Supper at Bama & Papa’s


L-Chicken Noodles, Oranges, Cheese, Water
D-Sundried Tomato Turkey Burgers, Sauteed Zucchini

L-P, B, & J, Pretzels, Blackberries, Water


B-Key Lime Shortbread Muffins, HB Eggs, Juice
L-Buttered Noodles w/ Garden Peas, Water


B-C/S Toast, Yogurt, Water
L-Cheese & Egg Burrito w/ Salsa, Milk
D-Black Bean, Corn, Tomato, & Brown Rice Salad


L-Cheesy Beans & Rice, Water
D-Extra Cheesy Pizza (my middle child’s fave)

B-Individual Coffee Cakes, HB Eggs, Berries
L-Cheese Quesadilla, Mexican Tomato Soup
D-Chicken and Veggie Kebabs


And, speaking of kebabs, am I the only person in the blogosphere that spells it that way?  All I ever see is “kabob”!   For the record, either is correct.  I’m not trying to argue otherwise- I’m just curious if I stand alone with the e-a version.  How do YOU spell kebab (kabob)?

  • Your menu sounds yummy!

    I don’t tend to spell kebab because they’re not part of my regular mealtimes, but if I did spell it…I guess I’ve already proved I’d go with kebab. ;) I enjoy playing with words originating in the Middle East because I studied Arabic in college. It can be hard to get an exact translation for some of the vowels and consonants, so I think it’s interesting that a wide variety of spellings tend to be acceptable. But now I’m showing myself to be a total language geek and totally off topic!

    • Oh, I find languages fascinating! I think it’s fantastic that you studied Arabic! I only played around in the Romance languages… French, Spanish, and Italian. And I only passed fluency in French, but it was still so fun to learn them all. You can be a language geek with me any time, Elizabeth! :)

  • how do u cook things on the dashboard??

    I’d love if you visited my blog and checked out my Menu Plan/Pantry Challenge Update!

    • Well, if it’s really hot out and your car is parked in a sunny spot, it gets SUPER hot inside. I placed tortillas (spread with beans and sprinkled with shredded cheddar) on a cookie sheet. I also put eggs in individual greased bowls. All of that went on my dash and I just left it until it cooked! :)

  • Oh my goodness – this made me laugh! In FL, we often joke that it’s “hot enough to cook an egg on the sidewalk”, but I’ve never tried. Now, I just might! ;)

    • You want to know something funny, Angela? I actually researched cooking on the blacktop first, but quickly concluded that (at least here in CT), it wouldn’t actually reach the necessary temps to fully set an egg. But then I thought… “hmmm… I bet the inside of the car gets hot enough!” and, sure enough! You might be able to do even more fun cooking down in FL! :)

  • What a great idea! That looks like so much fun :) You are definitely using the heat to your advantage.
