Menu Plan Monday, August 2nd

Are you ready for the start of August? I’m ready with our meal plan for this month but I’m not sure if I’m ready for the hot weather that is sure to come. At least I’ll be prepared with easy to make oven free meals.

Menu plan with recipe links

This week my kids helped to plan our menu.

I picked out two of the dinners and the kids picked out the rest. I was really pleasantly surprised that my kids requested the southern fried tofu.

I really like it and everyone eats it well but I really didn’t think that would be one they would choose. But I’m happy they did.

We are going into the hottest month of the year for our area so to be prepared, I don’t plan any meals that need to be cooked in the oven. It just makes the house too warm.

All of the dinners will either be prepared in the slow cooker, on the stove top or on the grill.

We’ll be having steaks again this week as they are great to grill and I was able to pick them up on sale recently, so we have quite a few in the freezer. 

We have quite a few cucumbers coming out of the garden, so I’ve decided to make a cucumber salad this week.

We also have lots of lettuce too. So most of our side dishes will be either prep ahead salad or easy cucumber with onions.

Our Meal Plan for this week…

This whole wheat pancake recipe is easy to make and healthy too. It doesn’t contain eggs or oil. You can make it dairy free by using almond milk or another non dairy milk. It’s a great weekend breakfast but fast enough to be made on a weekday too. Even though these pancakes are made with whole wheat, they are light and fluffy. Come see what the secret is to making them fluffy instead of heavy and dense.

Toast and Eggs

Breakfast Sandwiches and Fruit

Pancakes, Sausage and Eggs
