Menu: June 27 - July 3

Last week was... fun. Summer is, without a doubt, in full swing.

We didn't get to the roasted turkey legs over the weekend so that's shifted to Monday. The lentils and brown rice tacos that we didn't get to have been shifted forward to Wednesday.

There will be a few new recipes popping up in the near future. We've all decided we need to lose some weight so Girl and Husband picked out The Biggest Loser Family Cookbook this weekend while we were out. Some of the ideas they suggest are simply... not... going to be implemented in our weight loss endeavors while others are ideas I've been trying to get both Girl and Husband to embrace for a while. Since this is their idea, I am tentatively optimistic about the results.  It'll be easier for me to eat better if they're the ones wanting the healthier meals. 

Also, they think we should all eat breakfast in the morning. Amazing. I wonder why I never thought of that.

So! In the mean time... food. Because my family REALLY likes it when I feed them and it's so much easier to bribe convince them to do things when I have food.

As always, much gratitude for Laura at I'm an Organizing Junkie for hosting Menu Plan Monday.

As I typed out the above, I realized that I've been remiss in posting recipes in my recipe blog so I'll be working on that some this week when I get the chance.

And I believe that's it for the food this week.

Blue skies, world.
