Menu Plan Monday: July 6th~11th

This week's dinners (at least the first few days) will primarily be catered to the kiddos. Vince is out of town, so I'm just cooking to please them. I'm so ready for the Mr. Picky and Miss Semi-Picky to broaden their food horizons!!

Then later this week one of my college friends is coming for a long weekend visit. We haven't seen each other in several years (not since before I had kids) so we are really looking forward to some fun times!!

Plus I've got lots of little projects at the house that I'm working to finish before Vince comes back home. I should be plenty busy this week and keep from missing Vince too much (yeah, right!).

Monday: pinto beans & cornbread (one of the kiddos' fave meals)
Tuesday: dinner at my parents'~lasagna
Wednesday: macaroni & cheese with veggies
Thursday: picking up my friend at the airport & dinner out in Fayetteville
Friday: dinner at my parents'
Saturday: Lexington-style grilled chicken, potatoes, red, white & blue salad

As I'm sure you noticed, my mom is spoiling me a bit this week by having me and the kiddos over. I'm lovin' it! I hope you have an awesome week of dinners planned, too. Visit I'm an Organizing Junkie if you need some help!

I have that Lexington-Style Grilled Chicken on my menu, too. I had it bookmarked in my favorites in my 'recipes to try' folder. Have you made it before and that's where I saw it? When it's not from a specific blog post and from a recipe blog instead I never really know where they came from to start with! I can't remember. Or else we're on some really similar wavelength like when you're in junior high and you wear the same clothes, but you didn't call and plan it.

Have a great week, Lora!

I love that you plan your menus!! I've been planning a month at a time for about 2 years now. It's evolving... I'm determined to add a LOT of crockpot recipes for the rest of the summer: too hot to cook much! :]

Yes, that's a recipe that I've made a couple of times now. I posted a link a couple of months ago, I think. I hope you like it--we LOVE it!!

I've been menu planning weekly for over a year now. It's been a domestic life saver! I'd love to be better at it though--like doing the monthly planning! You'll have to give me some tips!

I love a summertime menu!
Watching Barefoot Contessa making a fennel and orange salad. I love her cookbooks!
Have a terrific weekend!
