This Week in Supper

On the occasional Friday, I have posted recipes of my own devising (I call that feature Food Friday). I don't have a new recipe for this week but I have been on a tear of good cooking lately, feeling both productive and creative. I think that it's the coming of warm weather that lends itself to my kitchen creativity. Last week's suppers were particularly successful, at least from my point of view (JT may some day write his own blog to complain about what I cook). And so I present: This Week in Supper.

There was Tuesday's pesto tomato grilled sandwich, sautéed spinach with garlic, and cantaloupe. That sandwich is a work in progress and when I have perfected it, I will post the recipe here.
On Wednesday, the pesto was put to work to make pesto pasta and green salad with honey mustard balsamic dressing, feta, pecans, & dried cranberries.
Thursday found the table set with JT's favorite food: guacamole, adobo refried beans, and grilled veggie quesadillas.
I always cook enough to have leftovers for my lunch the next day. I am an extremely ordered cook so at some point this weekend, I will plan suppers for next week. Then I will re-stock the pantry and the process will start all over again.

Funny, my kids like guacamole, too. They won't eat it if there are any chunks in it, though. It seems like such an odd food for kids to like. Does JT eat cooked spinach?? My kids would freak out! They'll eat it raw though. Do you have a good recipe for creamed spinach?
