July Meals

Later this month, my hubby and I are taking a long-deserved trip to St. Louis. We have not had a vacation alone since the boys were born, so I think it’s been long enough. The Wee One tells us that we are going on a date. Both boys are excited because they sleep over at their grandparents for a few nights.

I’m planning for 5 to 6 meals per week. We usually eat at my in-laws on Sunday nights, which is pretty consistent. 

Meals by weeks:

Week of July 1 -4

  1. Cantonese Sweet and Sour Chicken over rice
  2. Italian Beef Sandwiches on homemade hamburger buns with potato chips and fresh veggies
  3. Cheeseburger Macaroni, easy rolls, and veggies
  4. Cookout at a family member’s house

Week of July 5 -11

  1. Roast chicken in the crockpot, mashed potatoes, veggies, and easy rolls – Use the leftover chicken for the quesadillas and stir fry
  2. Monterrey Chicken Quesadillas or Chicken Ranch Quesadillas for the grown-ups – Plain cheese ones for the children (The Wee One told me that we haven’t had quesadillas in a while, so I’m putting it on the menu.)
  3.  Sloppy Joes on homemade hamburger buns, chips, oven fries, potato chips, fresh veggies
  4.  Chicken stir fry, rice
  5.  Egg Sandwiches, fresh fruit, hash brown
  6. left-overs or forge for yourself
  7. Dinner at in-laws (Sunday)

Week of July 12-18

  1. Homemade pizza – Cheese for the Imaginative One and pepperoni for the rest of us
  2. Pretzel chicken, french fries – either homemade or frozen
  3.  Pork loin (I don’t know how I’m going to cook it just yet), mac’n’cheese, mashed potatoes, or pasta Roni, veggies
  4.  Quick pork lo mein, egg drop soup, egg rolls, fortune cookies
  5.  homemade corn dogs (in Food Network magazine July/August 2010), potato chips, fresh veggies
  6. left-overs
  7. Dinner at in-laws (Sunday)

Week of July 19-25 (This is the week we will be gone, so we will have fewer meals to cook. I need to plan for only 3 meals and one day of leftovers!)

  1.  mini hamburger sliders on homemade hamburger buns, oven fries, fresh veggies
  2.  soft tacos, quesadillas for kids, veggie or salad
  3.  almost famous chicken sandwiches on homemade hamburger buns, oven fries or waffle fries, fresh veggies
  4. left-overs
