Heat Wave Menu Plan Monday July 1

Updated July 2nd

It’s July.  And boy oh boy is it July!

We are in the middle of a heat wave here in the Pacific Northwest.  We went from sixty degree temperatures to ninety degree temperatures in about an hour.

OK, so it was really a day or two, but the change was drastic and quick.

Of course hot weather means we are spending our days at my moms in her pool.

Of course all this hot weather meant I had to redo my menu plan.

I had previously planned for the whole month, but it is way too hot to use the oven.  So I came up with a new plan, which, if I am honest with you, I might not stick to.

Menu Plan 7/1-7/7

Mon: We won’t be home, so I don’t know what we will end up doing

Tue: Chicken Pesto Wraps (carry over from last week) with chips

Wed: Pepper Jack Pulled Pork Sandwiches with salad

Thr: Caesar Chicken Burgers with pasta salad (not sure what kind yet)

Fri: Wine Glazed Steak with mashed potatoes

Sat: Left overs

Sun: Philly Cheese Steak Sloppy Joes with tater tots
Happy Cooking

Menu Plan Monday June 24

Happy Monday!

I didn’t make a menu plan last week.  But I have to share with you what we had for dinner last night.

If I had realized it would have been such a hit, I would have photographed it!

Ian ate it without prompting and asked for more!

This is a huge deal.

I made Pork Chops Braised in Rum with Parmesan Garlic Orzo.  So easy and so yummy!

You will be seeing it in menu plans to come!

Since I don’t have a picture of our dinner, I thought I would share this picture of Baby Sid getting ice cream for the first time, from my Auntie.
