Well, hello! Fancy meeting you here.....on this blog I have pretty much neglected over the past month! LOL
Truthfully, I have missed blogging and reading blogs! I really have to schedule some "down time" to do both!
On my rather short walk with the dog this morning (way too hot outside for her!), I came to the conclusion that, as much as I hate doing it, I have to start meal planning again. Even a loose plan is better than no plan, right? There have been way too many nights of fast food in this house lately! Trust me my waist line, bank account, and refrigerator with past prime food show it.
So, I figure now is a decent time to start again since:
1. I would love to keep August's grocery budget way in check! (I'll post about July final grocery tally next time.)
2. I would like to use a good portion of what is in the house before we head off for vacation!
So, without further adieu, here's my plan for the week!
Cold cereal with milk
Homemade "Egg McMuffins"
Yogurt with fruit/granola
English muffins with peanut butter/jelly
"Breakfast Delights" (English muffins with bacon & American cheese) G2's favorite
Tuna Salad (Papa)
Misc frozen items (ie half bag of popcorn chicken, assorted individual pizzas, potstickers, etc)
Pan-seared Flank Steak
Roasted green beans
Chinese Chicken Stir fry
Roasted sweet potatoes
Homemade Macaroni and Cheese
Green beans with garlic
Not terribly exciting but it keeps us fed and me out of the grocery store!
Anything good on your menu?
Do you struggle with meal planning in the summer too?
