Menu Monday July 17-23

I had a little trouble making this week's menu.  But I got it done and here it is.

Today is done but I'll include it was a weird day.  The kids had cereal for breakfast (Frosted wheat), then we had a weenie roast at the pond (hot dogs, chips, and more marshmallows than any group of people should eat in one day).  Since we totally stuffed our faces for the lunch the kids and I had popcorn and a sandwich for supper.  Now for the rest of the week...

breakfast banana split
more oatmeal (see previous post on making oatmeal more interesting)

taco cups
egg & bagel sandwiches
summer sausage lunch with veggies and homemade hummus

tacos with black beans, rice, lettuce, cheese, salsa, & sour cream
sandwiches (picnicking at the park)
salisbury steak, mashed potatoes, and green beans
grilled pizza
eggs & toast (made by the Knight)
Baltimore Hash

Again, we are planning to try a few new recipes...salisbury steak, Baltimore Hash, and homemade hummus.  One thing I did last week is I planned way too many meals and didn't leave enough "blank spots" for leftovers.  I only left one spot for leftovers officially but I also worked to plan leftovers into the week...taco cups are made with leftovers from taco night without just eating reheated tacos. 

Someday maybe I'll have photos to go along with my menus...if the family will wait long enough for me to take pictures.  :)
