Menu Plan Monday

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a good 4th of July…ours was pretty rainy, so we didn’t get to spend too much time outside, but we did have lots of good food to eat and watched some fireworks on TV.


For this week’s menu, it looks like we’re doing a worldwide culinary tour…I didn’t notice it until I sat down to write up this post, but we’re having Italian, Mexican, Chinese, and German foods. Everything will be cooked on the stovetop because it will be much too hot this week to use the oven.

Here’s what’s on the menu for this week:

Monday: Shrimp Fried Rice, potstickers, veggies

Tuesday: Make Your Own Taco Bar

Wednesday: Spaghetti with Italian sausage, veggies

Thursday: Leftovers

Friday: Breakfast for dinner–linguica, eggs, biscuits, toast

Saturday: Brats on the grill (I ended up having to cook them on the stove because of the rain), watermelon, corn-on-the-cob, easy berry cobbler, homemade vanilla ice cream

Sunday: Eat Out

    Sorry to hear your 4th was so rainy. That’s what it is usually like here, but not this year. When we went out to do our fireworks at 9:00pm it was still 85 degrees. Way to warm. They are saying we have three more days of above 90 weather, if we get them it will break a record. I’m so ready for the heat to go, our usual temperature during this time of year is 78 degrees. Hopefully we will be back down ther by the weekend. I’m keeping my menu easy for this week with stove top meals like skillet pizza pockets. Or we will be grilling to help keep the house cool. I hope you have a great week.

    We’ve been getting way more rain than usual here in IL, and there was a chance we’d get some on the 4th but didn’t. That worked out perfectly because my mom’s side of the family was having a family reunion that day. 🙂

    Your menu looks delicious, Erin!
