Since Meal planning helped out a lot in keeping to a budget, and reducing stress on MOI I took a few minutes to throw together a plan for this month. You'll notice there aren't 30 meals on there. This is for several reasons 1) when we love something we LOVE it-we want to have it over and over! 2) We have a week of vacation this month with family! 3) we tend to have a few nights here or there where hubby goes out to play a sport or we end up hanging out with family at dinner time.
Rather than OVER plan meals I will have this list to pick from, all are easy but good, and can either be tossed in the crock pot in the early afternoon or made in a jiff while Hubby and W play!
July: (ps don't you LOVE that chalkboard menu-I NEED To make one)
Turkey Hotdogs(FREE at ACME this week with coupon), Pasta Salad
Spaghetti & Turkey Meat Sauce
Lazy Chicken Parmesan sandwiches (recipe to come!), salad
Pizza on the Grill
Breakfast for Dinner (Pancakes & Turkey Bacon)<---we use the pancake recipe from the Food Network Magazine!

Zucchini pasta with creamy tomato sauce & mushrooms
Pizza Chili (I will be using with white beans since I don't have kidney)
Quesadillas (recipe to come!)

That's it!! We tend to have lots of leftovers and if we don't eat them fast enough for lunch we will have a smorgasbord to finish them off!
IF things turn out really well and don't LOOK hideous, I will be taking pictures and posting/linking to recipes!
