Menu Plan Monday 7/27-8/2

**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! However, I am noticing that there isn’t much in the way of leftovers to put in hubby’s lunch. So it is going to be a little tight for hubby’s lunch this week. The ballgame last Wednesday was a lot of fun! The kids really enjoyed going to the ballpark.

This week’s grocery shopping was more of a there were some deals that I couldn’t just pass up shopping trip!! I also found some markdown/ “manager’s special” meat to purchase and put in my freezer!

This week is an uneventful week, I am going to stick with favorite meals rather than trying anything new! I am hoping to get some baking done despite the temps being in the 80s all week long! Thank goodness for the a/c, this will help some!!

Lunches listed are for the kids and me. Usually with our lunches I served carrot sticks, and some kind of fruit along with juice to drink. Hubby usually takes dinner leftovers each day along with several items for snacks.

Oh my...homemade Long John Silver's night?? How awesome is that! I want to come have dinner at your house.

Everything else sounds great too, but that one really took my breath away!

Love the idea of biscuit pizzas. I'll have to try that when I'm home with the kids. They would love to make their own lunch.

Great menu! Looks like you will be a busy baker this week. Enjoy!
