Menu Plan June 27-July 3

How quickly this summer is flying by! Last week was my lazy week - no kids, no big projects. Charles and I enjoyed a movie and dinner out and got to spend some quality time together.

This week is going to be a bit busier. The kids are still at my parents, so I'm going to try to work on cleaning and maybe even painting a room or two. On Thursday I'm going to a dear friend's house and learn how to make authentic Mexican food. Her family is from Mexico and she makes the most delicious tortillas, refried beans and carnitas around! I can't wait!

Here's the plan for this week:

Sunday
Sandwiches

Monday
Chicken and brown rice bake

Tuesday
Grilled pizza, grilled potato chips

Wednesday
Spaghetti, garlic bread

Thursday
Mexican food night! Whoo hoo!

Friday
Out with friends

Saturday
Chinese chicken, rice

If you're not a menu planner, try it out this week. It helps relieve the stress of "What's for dinner?" that hits around 5 pm! And it can help you stick to a grocery budget if you make a list of items you need from the store and follow it! Visit Organizing Junkie's Menu Plan Monday for more inspiration. You'll find tons of menu plans and recipe links there.
