YAY for another warm week this coming week. There is no rain in the forecast this coming week. We are also heading out camping this coming Saturday for 2 weeks. No cancelling this time. I can't. We have a friend and her family living in our home for the 2 weeks we are camping.
moving from last week
Tortellini with Alfredo Sauce
I didn't get a menu plan done last week, and I paid for it! We ended up eating out 2x, not good.
Today my inspiration for menu planning is not with me, so I will do the best I can. We can't afford another week like last week. I'm hoping to have to do little to no grocery shopping. Our garden lettuce is ready and so is our kale so I'll see if I can work that into the menu.
Chicken and Kale Soup
Beef and Kale Taco Salad
with my favorite super easy
Hooray! Summer is finally here!
We have beautiful weather coming this week, how exciting.
So now to figure out something for dinner each night. The only thing on the calendar this week is VBS for my boy and gardening.
Well, the weather man called for rain. So we cancelled our camping trip. Our week went well. We are spending a ton of time at our garden. Having dinner a bit early and heading out after dinner, the kids play and we work. My husband and I are really enjoying our garden and working in it.
On to our menu for this week.....
my husband is off so I hope to be at the garden
for a good chunk of the day with the family
so we will do a freezer Meal
Ham with mashed potatoes
Spaghetti with meat sauce
My boys 5th birthday!
I don't really do parties for the kids
just an extended family dinner
BBQ homemade Burgers
Salad (bought by family)
and I hope to make a 'ninja' cake
Pay Day = Order In
I think it will be chinese this time
but we'll figure it out the night before
we often order in rather then go out,
it's much easier with the kids
and we find it is often cheaper as well
We are going to visit my folks at the lake
so my dad will likely make dinner for us
I'll bring a salad and snacks
