July Menu Plan

It's summer!!!! This is a great time of year for our family - school's out, the days are longer, the vacations are abundant, and swimming is done almost daily. Our menu plan is pretty simple this month, with travel and the expected heat. I don't like to spend time in front of a hot stove or oven unless I have to.

Here's the plan, subject to change!

Menu Plan Monday - June 29

I'm BACK!!! It's been a wild 2 weeks in our house with packing, settlement on the houses, and then moving. We are still nowhere near unpacked, but life must begin to return to normal. I have been surfing the internet looking for more yummy recipes to try and keeping some of our favorites in the rotation. With an empty freezer and full pantry, there will be lots of stocking up done this week. We leave Friday for a week at the beach, so I won't be posting a regular menu next week. I'll try to post some recipes for our beach favorites though. On to the food ...

Moving Weekend

It has arrived - this weekend is the big move into our new house. I am really looking forward to this process. Okay, not so much the hauling furniture on the hottest day of the year so far part, but the result! Our lives have been a little out of control lately and I know our family is suffering. Here are some of the many reasons I am looking forward to getting settled and getting back to normal ...

  • Spending time with little man and ENJOYING it - the past several weeks have been spent trying to keep him occupied while I clean, sort, and pack
  • Starting a Bible study at church - I have been far from God's word during this process and I miss Him desperately!
  • Menu planning - healthy, budget friendly, and easy meals have been few and far between the past 6 weeks.
  • Being truly happy in our home again - I mentally "checked out" of this house before we put it on the market and I have felt like I'm on an extended visit lately.
  • Getting over a feeling of discontent - I've been cranky, tired, irritable, and generally not pleasant to be around. I KNOW this and I am so ready to be OVER it!
I'll be back for Menu Plan Monday and will try to post more regularly from now on.

Have a great weekend!

Menu Plan Monday - June 8, 2009

We are back from a short trip to the beach and ready to hunker down and get serious about packing, cleaning up, and - my favorite! - cleaning out. Similar to last week, this week will be simple and easy in our house. Less than 2 weeks until the move! Visit Laura at I'm an Organizing Junkie for more menu ideas.

Menu Plan Monday - June 1

In the midst of summer fun and packing, we still have to eat. The past few weeks have been chaotic when it comes to meals - a lot of eating out, eating at grandma and grandpas, and eating not-so-healthy. This week, I'm back to a plan! We are heading to the beach on Thursday for the weekend, so I only have 3 meals planned.

For more inspiration, check out I'm An Organizing Junkie. Have a great week everyone!
