Menu Plan: Week of July 1

This week's menu is filled with recipes that do not require the oven

We are going through a heat wave, so this week’s menu is all about keeping the oven off as much as possible!

MondayTomato and Herb Soup and a garden salad

TuesdayChicken and Mango Salad with Creamy Cilantro Lime Dressing I found mangoes on sale for $0.58 each at Winco and might have bought 8. We all have our weaknesses! :)

Wednesday – YOYO Leftover Buffet (YOYO = You are On Your Own, Mama’s taking a night off from cooking)

Thursday – Grill Hamburgers and hotdogs, Grilled Corn, Slow Cooker Baked Beans,

FridayGuadalajaran Swiss Chard Quesadillas, Mexican Rice, and Black Beans.

Saturday – Grilled Salmon and Grilled Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette (recipes coming soon!)

Sunday – Use leftover baked beans and black beans to make Miracle Leftover Chili and serve it with a garden salad.

If you need help getting started making a menu plan, you can read how I create menu plans, which includes mention of various methods I have used in the past. Another tool that is available to help is ZipList. I created a video, showing how I use ZipList to save recipes, make meal plans, and create shopping lists.

I also have printable menu plans, a shopping list, and other useful printables that you can download to make organizing your meal planning and grocery shopping a little easier.
