Menu Monday 7/4

Happy Independence Day!  Whoot Whoot! This week I made several meals that I could "flip" into meal the next day.  I love it when I can do that, I'm always trying to get more bang for my buck.  As we are trying to cut back on spending, flipping meals allows us to throw out less and get a new taste using many of the same ingredients.  Since I am home during the summer and feeding the whole family breakfast and lunch, we seem to eat less leftovers for dinner.  Even though I eat leftovers during the school year for lunch, we always have fewer in the summer.  I don't mind cooking so it's not that big of a deal that I seem to be spending most of my waking hours thinking about, preparing, and cleaning up from meals, anybody else feel like that?  

Sunday-marinated mushrooms and watermelon for a pool party

Monday- BBQ chicken legswith mashed potatoes & peas

Tuesday-pot roast with rice & broccoli

Wednesday-pot roast Shepard's pie

Thursday-poppy seed chickenwith banana blueberry bread

Friday-blueberry breakfast bake with strawberry syrup

Saturday-cowboy steaks with shallot butter with pepperoni pasta salad,
