What to Cook for Dinner?
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.
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.
All of the dinners will either be prepared in the slow cooker, on the stove top or on the grill.
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.
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…
Brown Sugar Steaks, Baked Potatoes (in the slow cooker), and Salad
Grilled Pork Chops, Baked Potatoes, and Salad
Southern Fried Tofu, Egg Noodles, and Salad
