Menu Plan (June 29 – July 5)

Laura over at I'm an Organizing Junkie is taking a blogging break this week (good for her!) so Laura (is that a theme?) at Heavenly Homemakers is hosting Menu Plan Monday in her stead. Still the same deal, sign up and post your menu if you want, or just visit everyone and get all their great ideas for fab summer menus. And sometimes, if you are really lucky, nab a great recipe. Like the one this week I can't wait to try, Quick Spinach Roll-Ups, courtesy of Three Ladies and a Dad. I love the name of her blog, by the way, too darned tootin' cute. I love love love folks who either link to their recipes or post them. I am a long-time recipe collector and just can't have too many. Plus, with computers now, the sky's the limit. I don't have to worry about running out of space. In fact, one of my long-term projects is to get *every* recipe (that I want) from *every* recipe book I own into my computer. Saves space in our little house. That way I don't have to worry about losing them, if I can remember to back up my computer that is!

Here's this week's menu. Everything is easy and crock-pot, grill or no-oven (or rather, no regular oven ... convection only!). Oh, that reminds me, here's a picture of my new toy! --->

  • Sunday: What I Didn’t Get to Last Week
    • No matter how much I plan or promise myself I won’t laze out and just say “scrounge night”, it happens. At least once a week. So, I end up with a menu and (usually) ingredients for one meal (sadly, sometimes more than one). So here is my plan to not waste anything and to use up that meal. If, on the other hand I am fabulously organized and manage to make all planned meals … I hereby declare Sunday nights PIZZA night. Order in, Kiy does nothing, Pizza night!
  • Monday: Fresh fish (whatever looks good at Yokes), pasta with Parmesan cheese, peas and carrots

  • Thursday: Leftover Buffet

  • Saturday: Free Nite
    • We tend to go out one nite a week, or need a night of not making dinner for various reasons. I am factoring this in my menu plan each week, but it won’t necessarily always (or often) be on a Saturday.

Looks delicious! I'll be sure and post a picture of my flag cookie next week. I've never made it that way before!

Thanks for stopping by!
