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:


Chicken and brown rice bake

Grilled pizza, grilled potato chips

Spaghetti, garlic bread

Mexican food night! Whoo hoo!

Out with friends

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.
