My Summer 10 Meal Menu

10 meal menu

It’s been a while since I posted a meal menu. We like to grill a lot in the summer, so my favorite chef is preparing several side dishes for us this time around.

I’m excited, because we’re trying out a two new pasta salad recipes this time. Obviously we won’t be freezing those. We also won’t freeze the enchilada casserole, chicken salad or rice, black bean and corn salad.

It’s a Party

Gigantic Cookie

We started out with a low calorie dinner.

Here’s the recipe we used for the BBQ […]

Yesterday, we got the car packed up with ingredients and dropped them off at her house.

 

Here’s what she’s making for us.

:: Meatloaf (x2)

:: Stuffed Shells

:: Chicken Pot Pie (x2)

Filling the Freezer ~ Breakfast Foods

This past week I decided to focus on preparing some breakfast foods that can be frozen and pulled out as needed. I was inspired by one of Crystal’s post over at Money Saving Mom on how to fill your freezer in four weeks.

Here are four freezer friendly breakfast recipes that we love.

I made two loaves of this Banana Bread Recipe last Friday. It really is quite tasty, but I think I […]

Thanksgiving Recap

Thanksgiving Pies

We enjoyed a most wonderful Thanksgiving celebration with family and friends. Our Leaf Garland of Thanksgiving was completed and we certainly do have much to be thankful for. In fact, I would like to continue counting our blessings in December…just need to come up with a way to display them.

Here are some pictures of the food. I like to make enough to last us through the weekend. I think I succeeded.
