Menu Plan Monday | July 18

Here’s what we’re having for dinner this week. What’s on your plan?

Monday:  Grilled Ham & Cheese, Cucumbers & Pretzels

We are spending the day at Kings Island’s Boomerang Bay so I know there won’t be anything elaborate being cooked here.  We all love grilled ham & cheese so an easy dinner it will be!

Tuesday: Shredded Chicken Taco Bar

Diced tomatoes, shredded lettuce, cheese, sour cream, salsa & shredded Mexican chicken will be on the “taco bar.” I love this meal because once it’s spread out on the counter it’s every man (or boy) for himself.

Wednesday: Crock Pot Baked Ziti & Grilled Zucchini

Crock Pot meals are awesome!  Turn it on in the morning and forget about it until dinner time.  I just saw this recipe on one of my favorite sites and knew it looked too easy not to try!  My kitchen counter is piled with zucchini from the garden.  Grilled zucchini will be great to go along with the ziti.

Thursday: Grilled Pork Chops & Sweet Potatoes

Boneless Pork Loins are on sale for $1.99/lb at Kroger this week.  I’m going to have the butcher slice one into chops to grill out.  It’s going to be much too hot here to turn the oven on to cook a roast.

Friday: Grilling Out with Friends

This may change but I think our plans are to spend the afternoon poolside with a few moms & kids. The dads are going to join us for the evening.  I’m assuming that we will grill out together.

Saturday: Homemade Pizza

With plans on Friday night, our weekly pizza night will be Saturday this week instead.  I’m thinking it will be a BBQ chicken pizza this week.  I have diced smoked chicken in the freezer.  The smoked flavor will go great with BBQ sauce, onions and more!

Sunday: Family Picnic

Not sure what I’m taking yet but we have plans to spend the afternoon with my dad’s family.  The aunts, uncles, cousins and their kids make up a pretty big group.  Hoping that the weather won’t be too hot for a picnic at the park.

If you menu plan,do you do it on a weekly or monthly basis?
