Menu Plan Monday

I've got kids going every which direction this week. One kid is headed off on a mission trip, one kid is going camping with Grandma and cousins, and one day all four kids are gone at the same time. I love summer. Here's what's cooking this week...


Kids make their own this summer and can choose from oatmeal, eggs and toast, or bagels and fruit


Monday, kids are gone so I'm not cooking
Tuna Salad Sandwiches with a bite, fresh fruit
Garlic Penne Pasta and steamed broccoli
Taco Salad (using garden lettuce)
Broiled Trout (from brother in law), garden salad, rolls
Grilled chicken salad (using leftover chicken in freezer and garden veggies)
Leftover Buffet

Hey! I read your blog every week, and I just wanted to say thanks for all the encouragement you've given me to grocery shop smarter. I finally found and checked out our local bread outlet store last Friday and WOW, I saved a ton of money shopping there! The bread was excellent quality, too. You have really helped me think hard about where I spend my money and what my priorities are through your blog. I love it! Thanks!!!

Love your blog. I have such a hard time coming up with lunches and I like to see what others have planned. On the taco salad recipe you're using this week--it's almost exact to one I use except I use ranch dressing instead of the 1000 Island and I only use about 1/2 the bottle. Just put in some and mix and then add a little more till your happy. :-)
Have a great week.
