Menu Plan Monday, 4th of July Edition

This week, we will celebrate Independence Day with a good ol’ American cookout…brats, my grandma’s macaroni salad, and some sweet watermelon 🙂

We’ll also be doing something that is a 4th of July tradition in my family…making homemade ice cream! Yum! I’m just not sure which flavor to do yet…any suggestions?

Here’s our menu for the week:

Monday: Homemade pizza with ham and olives, salad

Tuesday: Breakfast: Eggs, Linguica and biscuits

Wednesday: Chicken Stir Fry, rice and veggies

Thursday: Brats on the grill, macaroni salad, and watermelon

Friday: Spaghetti, meatballs and veggies

Saturday: Steak, baked potatoes, watermelon

Sunday: Eat Out

What’s your family tradition for celebrating the 4th of July?

    Looks tasty! We do homemade pizza every week too, but wow it’s awful heating the oven to 500 for an hour when it’s 106 outside! Extra electricity for the air conditioning balances out the $ I’d spend on takeout I guess!

      Hey Carissa! Thanks for visiting 🙂 Yes, I agree about the oven/air conditioning dilemma. I need to find some more crock pot recipes for the summer time!

    My boys and I decorate chocolate chip cookies for the Fourth of July. I really enjoy it a lot more than trying to decorate sugar cookies at Christmas which I find stressful. Oh, and I vote vanilla on the ice cream (I know not very exciting).

    Welcome to MPM.
    I love ice cream but haven’t had homemade…yet.
    As a tween, living in Azores, I was introduced to Linquica. My mother would add it to stews or just serve it with rice.

      Hi Rona! Thanks for stopping by 🙂

      I’m from California’s Central Valley and we always had it at breakfast with eggs, and the local pizza parlor offered it as a topping. My dad brought me a whole bunch the last time he visited, as I can’t find it locally.
