Baked chicken with mushrooms and onions, garlic bread, and tomato salad (recipe follows). Those who can't have garlic bread got baked potatoes.

I went to the farmer's market yesterday, and got 5 huge tomatoes (over a pound each!) and a massive cucumber for $4. So, of course, I made my version of a Greek village salad.

2 or 3 big tomatoes, roughly chopped

1 large sweet onion, chopped

1 large cucumber, cut in bite size chunks

2-3 oz olive oil

About the same amount of either red wine vinegar or cider vinegar

3 cloves fresh garlic, minced

1 TBS dried oregano and/or marjoram

A few grinds or shakes of black pepper

Put all of the above in a jar and shake vigorously (or a bowl and whisk til well combined). Pour over veggies, toss well, cover, and put in fridge for a few hours. Devour with good bread to sop up the sauce, or toss with cold noodles for a pasta salad. Add some feta or goat cheese crumbles, if you want!
