This Weeks Eats 8.18.13

Ahh, back to normalcy and I'm so very glad to be menu planning - again.  I had hoped to have something to say about the food on Orcas Island; alas, our little vacation was great, but it was also quite the comedy of errors in regards to missed opportunities with meals and other things (I'll have the travelogue up soon-ish).  Let's just say that we're happy we planned to have the weekend to recover.  We did decide on forking over lots of cash to go on a whale watching tour, and that certainly did not disappoint!

I've got two new recipes on the menu for this week, hopefully those will not disappoint either - how's that for a segue? 
I'm linking up with Mommy Run Fast and Jill Conyers, be sure to check out all the great weekly menus!
