We didn't use as many of the dishes as I had planned in July, so many of them will be carried over to August.
Here's what I've got planned for August:
- Hamburgers on the grill x2
- Steak on the grill x2
- Lemon Pepper Chicken Breasts - in the Slow Cooker
- Sesame Ginger Chicken Breasts - in the Slow Cooker
- Slow Cooker Pork Roast
- Beef Roast in the Slow Cooker
- Spaghetti x2
- Pizza x2 (using this dough and this sauce)
- Sloppy Joes
- "Go To" Chicken Casserole
- Honey Garlic Chicken (on the grill?)
- Parmesan Crusted Porkchops
- Crabcakes (received as a gift)
- Breakfast for Dinner
- Potato Spinach Sausage Casserole
- Vidalia Onion Pie
- Twice Baked Potatoes
- Leftovers x4
This isn't quite 31 meals, but we're already 2 days into the month and I've discovered from the past few months I don't need to plan a full month, because, well, life interrupts even the best laid plans.
I'm looking forward to trying out this menu plan. I deliberately planned several meals on the grill and several meals in the Slow Cooker for when the temperatures are really hot and I don't want to heat up the kitchen. I've also planned 4 non-meat meals, which is new for us. I think I counted 5 new recipes for my family- that may be a bit too much for the kids, we'll have to see. I still need to figure out what to do with the meatballs, maybe meatball subs? I haven't decided yet. Have a suggestion?
I'm planning the Slow Cooker Pork Roast for early this week so I can link up to the Ultimate Recipe Swap this Thursday.
At some point early in the week I'll have to plan a Make-Ahead Day for breakfasts because we're beginning to run low on everything except cereal and oatmeal.
Other meals this week:
muffins & scrambled eggs
grits or oatmeal with raisins or blueberries
creamed chipped beef over whole wheat biscuits
pancakes with fried apples
leftovers, PBJ sandwiches, turkey & cheese sandwiches, smoothies
