July 2 – 8, 2017 Meal Plan

I almost didn’t get this out today. I had been working on it and procrastinating a bit. I planned on finishing this up yesterday but after I mowed during the kids quiet time I really didn’t feel like doing much of anything for the rest of the day. After dinner I went to sit down for a minute and was out until late last night. But here it is, I hope you all enjoy and have a blessed, safe, and happy Independence Day celebration!

This is our basic meal plan for the week. Sometimes we will switch the days around if I forgot to set something out or put something in the crock pot. Please feel free to use this or change it around to suit your family’s needs.

I have started trying to do easier meals on days that I have square dancing obligations. This helps me to be able to put a nice meal on the table without feeling guilty about having some much needed ‘Mommy Time’. Some of these meals may also help with those that have busy or irregular schedules due to work or extracurricular activities.

I do have ‘Snacks/Desserts’ listed as well. I always try to keep a bowl of fresh fruit out on the counter or table for the kids to snack on. Sometimes I will make a special snack or treat for us to enjoy.
