Menu Plan Monday, July 3rd!


Um–where did half the year go?

I didn’t really menu plan last week because we were on vacation and we ate out a ton more than I think we ever have on vacation. We were moving around a lot and weren’t gone long, so cooking everything and keeping it cold in the insane heat was not a headache I wanted to deal with. But when we got back we had to go to the store because we did a great job of cleaning out the fridge before leaving…and on the way I totally made a menu plan for the rest of the week on the back of the shopping list. I just couldn’t help it!



My egg breakfast from this morning!!



More eggs probably–I have a source for local fresh eggs and they are just amazing. I also want to make some Chia seed pudding–it seems perfect for a cool, filling breakfast on a hot morning! And of course I have some smoothies–maybe some more of the strawberry/banana/spinach variety.



For me–baked chicken thighs with veggies: beets, peppers, green beans, maybe tomato, onion

For my daughter: she picked out a crustless Quiche that she wants to try. It will have regular cheese, so I won’t be able to try it, but it sounds delightful.


Stew in the crockpot

Burgers, grass-fed hot dogs, beans, corn on the cob, salad

Shrimp with noodles, veggie

Best Damn Pork Chops, rice pilaf


Fish tacos and sautéed veggies

Shepherd pie (family recipe–I don’t think I actually use a recipe when making this!)

Shrimp Fried rice


I would like to make this again–it turned out amazing and I even used frozen berries! I haven’t had a good cobbler in years and since no one else likes it around here I had to eat it up myself. It would be good as a breakfast too! Vegan Gluten-Free Blackberry/Blueberry Cobbler

  2. I tried a recipe that your sister suggested, that was so good that I plan on making it again tonight, Sweet potato, chickpea, and spinach coconut curry. Your menu plan for this week looks really yummy. I hope you have a fun and relaxing independence day!
