It seems like summer had decided to reappear. Hot and humid seems to be a theme for this week so I am going to try to make light meals that will fill us up and won't take too much hydro to cook this week. This weeks menu plan was a bit easier because due to sickness I am carrying over a few days of my menu plan to this week. When I am looking for meal ideas I always turn to Orgjunkie she does a weekly Menu Planning Monday Meme.

Meal Plan Monday, Week of August 10th, 2015

On Saturday I decided that I needed to take a complete inventory of everything I had in the freezer. I have two freezers one in the basement and one with our main fridge. I wanted to make sure I was meal planning with food I already had on hand to avoid any unnecessary trips to the store.  Armed with my list of what I had on hand it was time to plan my meals for the week. If you are looking for some great meal ideas be sure to check out my friends site Orgjunkie she does a weekly Menu Planning Monday Meme.

Sick of opening the refrigerator door and wondering what you will cook for dinner night after night. Not only does it save us money it keeps us out of the restaurants.

Menu Planning Monday - June 8, 2015

Hey Everyone, AnnMarie Here! The best way to make sure we stay on track with our eating and save time in the process is to menu plan. If I have a menu planned for the week there is no need to eat out and it allows us to save time every night!

Monday - Ranch Chicken Kabobs, Potato Wedges, Cucumber/Tomato Salad

Tuesday - Pasta, Salad, Garlic Bread

Wednesday - Pork Tenderloin, Scalloped Potatoes, Veggies

Thursday - BBQ, Baked Potatoes, Grilled Veggies

Friday - HM Pizza, Celery and Carrot Sticks

Saturday - Lasagne, Salad

Sunday - BBQ, Grilled Veggies, Rice

As you can see with my menu plan we stay away from anything out of a box. This is not a new way of eating for us this is just how we have always eaten. Even growing up my parents avoided buying things pre-made and always turned to home cooked meals even though my mom and dad both worked full time outside of the home. It is a value I am so glad that they instilled in me when I was young.
