Thursday – out
Trying Whale Wins – anyone been there? http://www.thewhalewins.com/

Friday – friends over
Grilled halibut with herb garlic butter http://www.food.com/recipe/garlic-herb-butter-23227 (I have been keeping this butter on hand in the freezer – just slice over grilled fish, chicken and let melt after it’s been cooked or even tossing in pasta noodles – has a ton of great flavor)
Grilled veggies – use up all your veggies in the fridge. Cut up in large pieces, toss in olive oil, s/p then put directly on the grill. After they have grill marks move to a cutting board, let cool a bit then chop into small pieces and put in bowl and serve. You can even throw some feta on top.
Lemon caprese pasta http://www.heatherchristo.com/cooks/2011/07/29/lemon-caprese-pasta/ or Ina’s summer garden pasta http://barefootcontessa.com/recipes.aspx?RecipeID=704&S=0 Can’t decide!
Smores – using regular chocolate for the kids, salted caramel chocolate for the adults
