Happy belated Independence Day!!
Honestly, it just never quite felt like the 4th of July to me.
In my head it shouldn’t be July yet so how can it be July 4th, right?
I know I am weird and I’m ok with it.
On a positive note, since it IS July, my Birthday is next weekend. yeah!
I can deal with that. I made it another year!
I have been horrible about making a menu plan lately. Summer just kills my desire to cook or plan. There is no consistent routine in the Summer and things I do plan sometimes don’t work out.
That is why I thought this Summer Menu from Cleanmama was absolutely genius. It’s repetitive each week, but not as repetitive as say “Taco Tuesday” and “Spaghetti Sunday”, etc. I just can’t repeat that often, it would drive me nuts and I think my family might revolt.
I found this last night so I plan on working on my own version of the Summer Menu this week, but for this week I do have a regular old plan.
Monday~ We had slider party for the 4th
Tuesday~ Grilled Chicken with Black Bean and Corn Salad and parmesan noodles
Wednesday~ Slow cooker pork chops, Brown rice and Salad
Thursday~ Kelly’s overnight chicken, mashed potatoes and green beans
Friday~ Salmon Patties, Macaroni and cheese and Peas
Saturday~ Chicken lime tacos, saffron rice and black beans
Sunday~ Leftovers for lunch, BLT’s for dinner
I have been fairly boring about my menu plan lately and I just write it out in my little notebook and post it here, but it could be so much cuter. There are so many cute menu/shopping printables out there in blogland. Here are just a few you could use.
The Sister Café
The Idea Room
This is a whole menu system from BHG that uses labels printed on magnetic paper. So organized.
How about you, is it harder for you to keep a plan in the summer? Easier? I would love to know I am not alone.
