Menu Plan July 25-31

It's the last week of July! The last week! And it's been hot. The last four days we've been under a heat advisory with temps reaching 100 with heat indexes of 110. Ugghh! I just melt in this kind of weather.

So I'm trying to stay cool in the kitchen. We bought a little oscillating fan that I keep on the counter by the stove. That little thing's been a HUGE blessing, keeping me cool while I cook. I've had to resort to keeping my stash of mini Reese cups in the fridge so they don't melt! Ha ha!

Here's the somewhat cool menu plan for the week.

Sausage veggie calzones (didn't get to this last week)

Grilled burgers and brats, hash brown casserole, orzo salad

Baked egg rolls

Homemade chicken nuggets, fries

Pasta with veggie sauce

Taco soup, homemade bread

Chicken strips, mashed potatoes, green beans

  1. Everything sounds so yummy Marsha : )

    Good for you organizing yourself like this! I always find that helps me not have a panic attack at 4:00 pm : ) Although, even though it would help me not have a panic attack, I still don't do it!

  2. I am excited to try your homemade bread recipe. I use my bread machine to make some homemade buns all the time. I will be sharing the recipe later this week.....they are AMAZING as I am sure your bread is - cant wait to try!

  3. Thanks for the egg roll instructions. I've wanted to try them but I've been intimidated...but I think I can handle it!
