Menu Plan Monday 7/20-7/26

**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 went off without too much trouble! I did switch a couple days around because of our schedule but no food changes. I also didn’t have to take a meal to my friend who lost her mother, she called me the day before I was to take it and said that life was back pretty much back to normal and she had gone grocery shopping so she didn’t need the meal. I argued with her a bit telling her that I was still willing to bring something but she assured me that they were fine.

This week’s grocery shopping was more a stockpile week on everything but meats! There wasn’t too much in the way of meats on sale this week so I will make do with the meat that I have in the freezer and I am going to be working towards meal planning till next payday(31st) from the shopping that I did do for this week.

This week, I am going to be a “work widow” for the first half of the week! Hubby has a major product that he and his team are working on so it will be late days for him which means that the kids and I will probably be on our own for Monday and Tuesday dinners at least, while hubby eats with the team. On Wednesday, we are going on a FREE family outing to the local minor league baseball game along with fireworks after the game!! How are we managing the “free” part of the outing….it is hubby’s work sponsored event. I won’t even have to worry about cooking that night because we will be eating “ballgame food”---hotdogs, burgers, brats, potato salad, chips, ice cream, and drinks. Should be a fun night!

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

Ok, I make something that we call goulash too. I wanted to ask you, what do you put in yours because I saw someone else's goulash and it was nothing like mine. :-)
