I’m hoping things slow down a bit this week.  Schools out and Monkey’s big birthday weekend is behind us.  I hope to get some freezer cooking done this week too.  The kids love to help cook, so I’m thinking it could help keep them busy.   We’ll see if it actually happens. 

Monday
Beef and potatoes from freezer with garden salad

Tuesday
Burgers and hotdogs leftover from Monkey’s party

Wednesday
Egg Quiche with fresh blueberries (didn’t make last week)

Thursday

I’ve been spending WAY too much money eating out these past couple of weeks.  I got lazy and didn’t do much cooking.  It’s time to reign in the budget again and get back into the kitchen. 

I had a bunch of free egg coupons from Target, so I’ll be using some of those up this week.  The boys are having egg salad for lunch this week too.

Monday
Quiche with fresh strawberries

Tuesday
Turkey Burgers with fries

Wednesday
Italian Chicken Pasta Toss with bread from breadmachine

Thursday
Chicken stir-fry using leftover crockpot chicken from freezer

I didn’t put together a menu plan last week.  I did okay with cooking dinners without it, but I had to be a bit more creative.  We only went out to eat once, and that was planned.  Can you tell I’m proud of myself?

I’ve over extended myself this week, so my menu will be rather simple.  We might even be eating sandwiches instead of me cooking one night.  I’ve vowed to avoid fast food, so I’m hoping I can stick with my plan.  My fridge and freezer are bursting, so with hubbies help on the grill we should be good.

Monday
Sausage with Mushrooms and zucchini over rice

Tuesday
BBQ chicken on grill

Wednesday
NC style BBQ from crockpot with fries (didn’t make last week) Here is a recipe idea – not sure if I’ll use it this time
