Meal Plan Monday

We're starting our home school this week!
We always start off pretty slow and then
add in more subjects as we get into the
groove of things!
Here's our menu plan this week...
Monday-- Spaghetti
Tuesday -- Grilled Steak, potatoes, and veggies (didn't have last week)
Wednesday -- Grilled Hamburgers and pasta salad
Thursday -- Grilled Chicken, potatoes, Garden Salad
Friday -- Birthday Party
Saturday -- Pizza
Sunday -- Grilled Sloppy Dogs with Mac and Cheese
Do you see a theme???
I'm keeping it very basic with lots of grilled foods!
I just heard that it's actually supposed to be HOT
this week.... I'm not believing it. We just had the coolest
July in all of recorded time - like 107 years!
Crock pot Baked Potatoes...
Did you know you can do baked potatoes in the crock pot?
Just wrap them in foil and put them in the crock pot.
Cook all day on low or high 4-5 hours! Don't add water!
So Easy and NO OVEN!!!
Have a great week!

I'll say a prayer for you as you start school this week. I'm still putting it off, but I always start gradually too. It seems that Murphy's Law is at play has been cold (for summer) all June and July, and now that we are starting school, it get's hot! Have a great first week!

you can also rub the potatoes with olive oil and add just a little water and the potatoes will cook also in the crockpot. It is so easy. We use this method a lot when we go camping!

Thanks Elizabeth for the prayer. So far all is going great!!

Vaughn great idea. I think I'll try that, saves tin foil too!
