Menu Plan Monday — August 2

It's been several weeks since I've done a menu plan post. They seemed to be getting slightly boring since we were doing so much grilling of exactly the same items. We tend to do a lot of bulk grilling when we cook hamburgers and hot dogs on the grill, then we're able to eat them for dinner for another day or so. I also marinate a lot of chicken in various marinades at one time (thanks to Life as Mom) and then we pull one of those out. They are especially good cut up and put on a fresh salad.

MondaySteaks on the grill. Hubby got them at the store the other day when he forgot we were having a Sunday dinner at church after the VBS program.

TuesdaySpecial Sandwiches. I don't know how big the steaks are that Hubby got, but sometimes we have a little left over. If we do, we'll have these. If we don't, we'll have to have sub sandwiches.

Wednesday5-Minute Southwest Layered Salad. This is one of the quickest and yummiest things we have in our repertoire.

ThursdayMexican Beef Casserole.

Friday — Leftover buffet/Clean out the fridge and pantry. The girls won't be home so it will just be four of us.

Saturday — Picnic with Mrs. Missionary, the chaperone from Sparky's Togo, West Africa, trip. They have it every year following a fundraiser for the organization. I'll take what has become my new go-to potluck dish, Cheesy Potato Casserole.

Sunday — Eat out since we ate in all week!

If you haven't had an opportunity to see my new shop, I'm going to be adding a few new items this week, so be sure to check it out!
