Our weather has been hot, hot, hot but this week it supposes to cool off about 10 degrees which I’m so looking forward too.

I usually plan all of our meals but this week is different. I’m being lazy this week and only planning our dinners.

I have a few things on hand for lunches that the kids will like or we can eat leftovers. Breakfasts will be our usually toast and eggs.

For the weekend I’ll make something a little nicer for breakfast, like omelets or pancakes.

As you can see even though I don’t have a plan laid out for breakfasts and lunches, I do have things in mind to make for our meals. You don’t always have to have your plan written out but having meals in mind can really help.

I always plan our dinners because that’s the hardest meal for me. If I don’t plan ahead we end up eating out way too much. Which is hard on the budget.

See our full dinner meal plan below…

When the weather gets warm, I love to make summer recipes that don’t heat up the kitchen. If you want to keep your kitchen cool and still have pizza pockets, try this skillet pizza pockets recipe. It’s easy to make and they turn out nice melty in the middle and a little crisp on the outside, just a diy perfect pizza pocket.

Twice Baked Taco Potatoes, Salad, and Fruit

Ground Beef Lettuce Wraps, Fruit, and Rice

Easy Sesame Chicken, Rice and Sugar Snap Peas

Start dinner in the slow cooker in the morning and have dinner waiting for you when you get home. This Garlic Pork Roast will cook all day and be ready just in time for dinner.

  1. I love traveling, but there are certainly times I love being a homebody as well! My summer menu plan involves dinners only. Breakfasts, we do a lot of homemade bread toast and yogurt. Lunches are leftovers and dinners include ribs in the slow cooker this week, and jon sette (a pasta casserole my husband loves).

    1. Ribs in the slow cooker sound really good, Kristen. I know I try to keep our dinners oven free and simple this time of year. There’s so much more fun things to do instead of cooking inside on a nice sunny day. 🙂

  2. So glad that you got to have some fun with your husband being off from work! My husband took off a couple of days around the holiday and it was nice being together without any chores to do (usually it’s yard work and errands when he’s home on the weekend).

    We’re having shrimp fried rice one day this week…I first made it a few weeks ago, and we like it so much that we prefer it to take-out now!
