This week I am bringing the menu plan back!  It has been a few weeks since I have posted a menu plan.  It is not that I have not been menu planning, but it has definitely not been the traditional menu plan.  Last month my husband traveled for work several days 3 out of the 4 weeks of the month.  During those days I used up leftovers in the freezer, random leftover lunch items, eggs, and made dinners out of various items in the pantry and freezer.  A few nights we took advantage of kids eat free nights or stopped over my parents’ house for a quick bite.  There wasn’t much consistency so it was quite difficult to write up a meal plan that made much sense.  I tried as hard as possible to eat at home whenever possible and to limit take out and for the most part I did a pretty good job.  During that time we also went to Disney for 4 days and enjoyed a quick trip to the parks.  Disney in 4 days is quite the whirlwind trip but I am so glad we had the opportunity and had a wonderful time making magical memories with my family.  This month we have been pretty consistent with our meal plans as well.  It’s been a bit crazy as far as schedules with both kids on swim team and my son in the marching band.  Evening practices have been taking up a good portion of the week the first 3 weeks of June so I have been cooking meals in advance that we are able to reheat easily since every body seems to be eating at different times.  I have a feeling this will be the norm most of the month of July as well so I decided that menu planning should be a priority and I am back again with my regular planning! If you have any favorite tips or recipes, please do share!  I am always open to new ideas!   Here is what is on our menu:

Sunday – Grilled Hamburgers, pasta salad

MondayKorean Beef and rice, steamed veggies

Tuesday – Grilled Chicken, buttery garlic noodles, steamed veggies

Wednesday – Sandwiches – To – Go (my daughter has an evening swim meet)

Thursday – Grilled Thin BBQ Pork Chops, Scalloped Potatoes, steamed veggies

Friday – Date Night Dinner
