Menu Plan Monday, July 9th

Do you have your meal plan done for this week?

I know I’d be lost without my meal plan. I make one each week so I know what I’ll be cooking. If you need a few meal ideas look below to see what’s cooking at our house this week.

It’s going to be downright hot later this week. I’ll be making quick and easy stove top or grilled dinners.

I don’t like to heat up the kitchen when it’s hot outside. Eating out each day isn’t an option, although it might be fun for a few days.

We are also getting lots of lettuce from our garden so we will be having salads as side dishes this week. Salads are easy to make and you can prep ahead salad for the whole week at the start of the week and be set.

Enchiladas are so good but when it’s hot out, I’ll make them in the slow cooker. They are easy to assemble and turn out great. Plus you don’t have to heat up the house running the oven.

For the baked potato bar, we’ll be making the baked potatoes in the microwave. And I’ll make skillet chili to go on top of the baked potatoes.

We’ll also be cooking the pizza on the grill. If you haven’t had grilled pizza you have got to give it a try.

Here’s our full meal plan…



Beef and Bean Enchiladas

Slow Cooker Enchiladas, Salad, Chips and Salsa

Salmon Patties, Rice, Homemade Tartar Sauce and Salad

Grilled Herb Chicken, served on a Salad with Grilled French Bread

Ham Slices, Mashed Potatoes, and Salad

Chili Baked Potato Bar, Salad, and Fruit

Pizza and Salad

Sloppy Joes, Fruit and Vegetable Sticks



Leftover most days

Sandwiches, Fruit, and Chips

Big Salad with Lunchmeat and Hard Boiled Eggs, and Grilled Bread


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 with Eggs

Whole Wheat Pancakes, Sausage, and Eggs

Omelet and Toast

  1. Looks like a great menu! Will have to try those salmon patties! Nice to see an oven free menu…we have a very small oven/microwave combo so I mostly use my stovetop….nice to get ideas that don’t use the oven so much!

    1. Thanks, Kate. This time of year I try to limit the amount of time my oven runs to help keep our air conditioning usage as low as we can. I really like having stovetop recipes to make. They are usually really quick and easy.

    1. It’s a little more work since you need to flip the crust but we love the wood smoke taste that it adds to pizza.

      I hoping to get my painting done so I will have enough room to make the pizza in the gazebo this week. It’s over run right now with lots of trim pieces, doors and drawer fronts.
