Menu Plan Monday

Whew! Happy holy hot Monday, world! We made it all the way into August and last night (technically tonight since I haven't been to bed yet), I gave it and put the window unit into my bedroom window. Last summer, I put it on the landing and while it was semi-effective, it took nearly a week to cool down our bedrooms. So, it's now in my bedroom window and the boys are camping out on my bedroom floor. I offered them my bed (it's important to me that they get enough sleep), but they said no, then I would be hot. So, they talked about it and decided to camp out on my floor so that I could still have my bed. I have such great kids!

Since the temperatures are supposed to be anywhere from 85-90 all week long, we're cooking/cheating in ways that are going to keep the house as cool as possible. I'm looking forward to Autumn when things cool down and I can really get into the kitchen and start cooking and baking again. I'm continuing on my goals of making changes in my life and that's part of it.

Monday - Leftover Pasta
Tuesday - Sandwiches
Wednesday - Family Picnic
Thursday - Pasta
Friday - Taco Chicken Packets
Saturday - homemade pizza
Sunday - Lasagna

Simple and hopefully very tasty. If the heat is too much for any of the oven cooked foods, I'll switch it to something in the crockpot. I love how easy that is.
