Menu Plan - August

I mentioned my new menu plan method a few weeks ago.

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:

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
