Menu Plan Monday 7/13-7/19

**Another week is upon us so that means it is time for another menu plan! This is just a plan and it could change on the cook’s whim!

Last week’s menus were chaotic!! I had major complaining going on that the meals planned were the same or similar to ones that we just had in the last two weeks! So my solution….I dumped the menu for the last 3 days of the week and we made new! So last week we ended up eating meals that I was thinking about for this week. Now the ones I scrapped last week are on this week! LOL

This week’s grocery shopping was a just get necessities, so the meals I have planned are mostly things that I already had on hand from the pantry and freezer.

Lunches listed are for the kids and me. Hubby usually takes dinner leftovers each day.

You are so much nicer than I am! Complaining gets my family nowhere, unfortunately. Especially if they've had/liked it in the past.

Sorry to hear about your friend's mom.

Your menu sounds delicious. You have a lot of variety in your meals.

Below is a link for Kelli's Jam filled oatmeal bars. They are super easy to make. I mix all of the dry ingredients and store them in a container for a quick breakfast, dessert or snack.

Nice menu. The lemon pepper pork chops sound really good.

Everything sounds so wonderful! I've been meaning to tell and keep forgetting that I love your snack basket idea and am starting to implement it in our house. It has really been a hit so far. Thanks for the great idea. :)
