June 15 Weekly Menu

The heat of summer truly hit us last week and so I'm aiming for lots of summer crockpot meals so I don't have to sweat too much in the kitchen!  I especially love making any sort of shredded meat for tacos in the summer.  Who am I kidding?  I love tacos year-round, but the veggies are fresh in the summer so that makes it a pretty inexpensive meal, too!

6.15.13 - Leftovers
6.16.13 - Fathers Day Plans TBD
6.17.13 - Crockpot Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches (never made last week)
6.18.13 - Leftovers
6.19.13 - Grill out
6.20.13 - Shredded Beef or Pork Tacos in Crockpot
6.21.13 - Dinner Out

Thank goodness it’s FRIDAY! Seriously, this may have been one of the longest weeks EVER.

TGIF because as of this morning, I have now taken 3 completely rain soaked walks with our dog.  Hooray for rain, not hooray for Tropical storms that dump it on us nearly 24 hours/day.  I love the rain that shows up over night and makes my grass green, I do not like the ALL DAY SEVERAL DAYS IN ROW RAIN!  So, thank goodness for the rain that is supposed to move out of here tomorrow!

TGIF because we’re having girls night tonight… making Baked Brie in puff pastry with brown sugar…. Cannot wait to devour it.  And of course some wine.  Thank goodness for Wine & Cheese.

TGIF because tomorrow is Saturday and I’m going RUNNING!  You might not know I’ve been battling a leg/hamstring/glute (unknown) injury that made running pretty difficult for me during April, so I’ve pretty much taken the whole month of May off, only to figure out, it’s probably Pilates that killed my leg, not the running afterall.  So thank goodness for getting out some of this crazy pent up energy!

TGIF because it’s the weekend and we are gonna be doing yard work and cleaning and grilling and running and napping and churching and all the great things there are to do on a weekend.  Thank goodness for weekends!

June 1 Weekly Menu

Summer is one of those busy seasons that we barely know what's happening tomorrow, much less for the month ahead, so I'm forgoing the monthly menu for a bit and going back with weekly menus until things settle down a bit.  We have had a busy last few weeks, including a long-weekend trip to the beach (see our new picture up there?  Courtesy of the wonderful photography skills of my sister... need your picture or your kids pictures taken?  I can get you in touch with her!)

This guy (and his short haircut) really enjoyed the beach too.... the not so great iPhone photography skills are mine :)

Now, for the menu....
6.1.13 - Brandon & MaryKathryn's Wedding!  Our only wedding this summer, seems we're growing up and there aren't too many to attend anymore!
6.2.13 - Thai Chicken Bites w/ Rice
6.3.13 - JWCMeeting/Girls Night with Leigh!! 
6.5.13 - Leftovers
6.7.13 - Date Night Out!
