Menu: August 1 - 7

Holidays and vacations, while fun, really screw up my menu planning. I suppose we'll just have to take more vacations so I can practice meal planning around/for them. It seems logical to me.

Things are kinda... weird... lately, so I'm trying to stick to simple meals that Girl can prepare if I'm swamped. Sometimes, I ask her to cook for no other reason than to give her that power in the kitchen. But don't tell her that. She might stop being so helpful.

Um... food. Because I don't really have anything else to say this morning (kinda time crunched, actually) and my family REALLY likes it when I feed them.

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

     cheesy eggs (actually egg beaters, but whatever)

Things have been kinda crazy in my world lately so I've not had the chance to work on sorting out my recipes and updating my recipe blog. I'm hoping to get project kicked off in the next week, but with the start of school looming just 22 days away, I might have to wait.

And I believe that's it for the food this week. Now it's off to the orthodontist and used bookstore.

Blue skies, world.
