Menu Plan Monday

I'm actually getting a menu plan post up this week! Yeah for me!

June was a very hectic month for us and so far July has been the same. We've had family in and out a couple of times, we've been here and there and then several other events and busy, busy weekends.

My brother is flying back home tomorrow morning, the last of the visiting family for now. Hopefully with this whirlwind behind us, I can get back to more regular blogging. Maybe. I have a list of posts to write; blogging just has not been a top priority during this busy season.

Our gardens are in full swing. I've canned some pickles and froze some green beans. We picked blueberries last Friday and I have a cookie sheet of them freezing now. We've been eating fresh zucchini, a few yellow squash and green peppers, lots of green beans and piles of cucumbers! Tomatoes are just starting to ripen and I have a small basket of them on my kitchen counter. There are very few things so delicious as a homegrown tomato!

Here's what's on the supper menu for the week:

Most meals accompanied by some fresh veggies from the garden.

Monday-Church meeting. I'm taking a cucumber and tomato salad and some homemade cookies. (My young cookie helper this morning pronounced the cookies "not yucky or gross." I am so glad!)

Tuesday-Crockpot roast beef

Wednesday-Beef and rice salad

Thursday- Beef and gravy over toast

Friday-Homemade pizza night

Saturday-scrambled eggs, toast, smoothies

My meal rotation is here. You will notice that I am not following it very closely this week. I'm using the crock pot on Tuesday so I'll have the meat cooked for the other meals!

I am also hoping to get back on schedule. Things have been crazy around here also. We have declared this a "no commitment weekend." So far I have had to turn down three things. I admit it felt good!

I enjoyed your Chick-fil-A pictures! I am worry too much about what others think to do it. I know, I know I shouldn't but I do. Have a great week!

I like the sound of "no commitment weekend"! I am in need of alone time in order to regroup; it's been way too long!

Funny about dressing like cows. Once we were on our way to Chick-fil-a, I started praying that there would be other people dressed up, since I felt quite silly! :-)

Thanks for commenting!
