Don’t look now, but it is totally August! Can you believe how fast the summer has flown by. I don’t even want to think about it. I’m sorry I even brought it up! Let’s just talk about Coconut Ice Cream and pretend the weather will always be warm and luscious, sound good? By the way, if you are a Homemade Ice Cream lover and think all-things-coconut are divine…please make the fabulous Coconut Ice Cream you see above, at your earliest convenience. It is glorious, beyond words.

I have my August Menu Plan for you all today. I have gone back to organizing the plan into 4 weeks, with a pretty good variety of meals each week. You will notice I have added at least 1 zucchini recipe every week. Do you have a lot of zucchini growing in your garden? I have a moderate amount and am loving every bite. This is a fun time of year to cook it up, yes? So much wonderful produce to be enjoyed.  Love it.

Now, here you have it! My August Menu Plan…right before your very eye balls.

PS…if you are looking for something great to read, I have several lists of fabulous books. See them here, here and here. A person needs to have a great book to go along with her plethora of zucchini. After all.
