Menu Plan Monday 8/12

It is summer.  It has been sweltering hot in our area many days these past couple weeks which make it very hard to cook on the stove or oven....Just heats up the house even more. 

And if I am to be honest our routine has been lacking thus I have not done a proper MPM in quite some time.

But I am this week.  I am tired of not staying on budget and eating not so good.  It is not healthy for me or the kiddos (or the pocketbook).


BBQ Pork Chops
Scalloped Potatoes
Apple Sauce


Spaghetti w/Zucchini
Garlic Bread


Chicken Stir Fry




3 Bean Chili
Corn Bread


Left overs


Date Night

What is your go to meal when it is too hot outside to cook inside (besides BBQ ideas)?

I am linking my post up with I'm An Organizing Junkie.
Check it out for lots of ideas on weekly menu plans plus tons of other stuff too.



  1. Found your blog through Menu Plan Monday. I am right there with you on the lack of menu planning - I've been slacking off for quite a while. Your plan for this week looks delicious!

    1. Thank you. Really trying to keep things simple. Too hard with my work hours to spend an hour cooking every night. If I can't make it, including prep,within a half hour, then I probably won't be making it. LOL. Thanks for stopping by my blog.

  2. I always seem to slack during the summers. I end up throwing out so much food...such a waste. I do much better once school is back in session and I am on a schedule.
    Just curious if you always plan a date night... that's something that i also need to improve on, too.

    1. In past summers I have done much better, but this summer being at a different job has made it much more difficult since my work hours changed. And we have been trying to plan date nights as often as we can. My spouse and I work opposite shifts so unless we do that...we don't have much quality time together. Thanks for stopping by my blog.


I *heart* comments!
