Hope you have a fantastic week & keep cool!!  (-:

Our Menu Plan 7.11.12-7.17.12

I feel like I haven't cooked in weeks! Of course I have been but it just hasn't been normal! The warm summer months surely change up the "norm"

-Chicken packets
-BBQ Steak & Chicken, Zucchini & Chard (I'll do a recipe video... This is the one I talked about in my June favorites video!)
-Chicken Salads
-Turkey Meatloaf & Veggies
-Pizza in the BBQ & Salad
-Night out with friends!!
-Dinner at my Parent's house
