Menu Plan Monday, July 8th



Menu Plan for Week of July 8th

I felt like we were falling into a menu plan rut. So I tried to add a few different recipes to our menu plan for this week. I try to keep my menu plans fairly easy in the summer so we can have time to do some fun stuff and I don’t have to worry about spending a lot of time in the kitchen. Here’s what I have planned for this week.


Sweet and Garlicy Pork Chops, Baked Potatoes and Salad
Omelets, Toast and Hashbrowns
Hamburger Skillet Dish, Salad and Fruit
Garlic Lime Chicken (freezer meal), Rice and Veggies
Sloppy Joes, Potato Chips, Fruit and Veggie Sticks
Grilled London Broil, Baked Potatoes and Salad
Left over Grilled London Broil on a Salad with Garlic Bread


Leftovers most days
Eggs Salad Sandwiches, Chips and Fruit
Pizza Rolls with Salad


Toast, Eggs and Oatmeal
Waffles, Sausage and Eggs
Muffin, Eggs and Sausage

How do you break free from a menu planning rut?

  1. I’m right there with you when it comes to not wanting to spend a lot of time in the kitchen…I mean I guess I do want to, but I can’t because I don’t have the time right now, so I don’t want to because then other stuff doesn’t get done that needs to be done and I’ll be a stressed mess. 🙂

    But anyway, to break the rut, I’m encouraging my husband to cook more. 🙂 He’s making meatless chili this week which should last at least 3-4 days. And I love how chili can be used in so many ways. We can eat it as is, with tortilla chips, over spaghetti, in a bread bowl, etc…

    I hope you have a great week, Shelly!

    1. Meatless Chili sounds really good. Is he making it in the crockpot? You are right chili is so easy to make in so many different ways. It’s nice to cook once and eat for a few days. 🙂
