Menu Plan Monday 7/6-7/12

**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 well. The homemade cinnamon rolls and cheesy potatoes (no meat) that I tried as new recipes this week went well with the family! They liked the cinnamon rolls better! I changed the cinnamon roll recipe some by using 1/2 whole wheat flour for the flour and I didn't use cream cheese in the icing. The family loved them lots so the cinnamon rolls will be more frequent on the menu instead of the canned ones.
Last week, I planned bbq pork, cheesy potatoes, and green beans! What a yummy meal!! The cheesy potatoes I will be putting on my rotation list as well, I just will not be fixing them on regular basis because a couple of picky eaters did not like them.

Why is that the week after doing major grocery shopping to fill my freezer and pantry (till next payday—15th), I am stuck with what to fix for meals?? I have lots of food but no inspiration!

My oldest ds turned 12 on Sunday! He went to a friend’s house who lives on a lake with the church youth group and then went out to dinner by himself with Dad. We are going to have a party at the house this Saturday. He has invited two friends and their families plus my parents to join us for a party! So this week, I have to get some cupcakes or cake made for the party!

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

Your menu is making me hungry. Looks like a great variety of home cooked foods.

Happy birthday to your DS!

Ooooh I love that recipe for the cinnamon rolls...can't wait to try them! Also, i absolutely LOVE the snack basket idea! I am going to start using that! I think I will individualize each snack into sandwich bags so the kids don't have to ask the age old question..."How MANY chips can I have?"

Thanks for the great ideas!

your menu plan looks so good, I am not doing one this week, as last week I hardly stuck to it, so I am going to give it a miss for a week or two.

I am looking for a replacement for the canned cinnamon rolls as that doesn't require a bread maker. Thanks for the link to this recipe! I can't wait to try it!

Have a great week! :-)
