Menu Plan: Summer (August 10-16)

**There is now a photo album on the RH Facebook page just for food photos. If you like to see a photo of a dish to judge whether you want to try it or not, then follow the link to view the album. (I tend to like recipes & cookbooks that include lots of photos). Let's be honest, some dishes are just too pretty to not take a picture! ;) **

  • I picked up at a Crock-Pot cookbook, and am excited to begin including the recipes into our menu plan each week. I've been wanting to have a meal ready for us as soon as we returned from church on Sundays. I've never really used our slow cooker for meals, and so hopefully this little book will give me some ideas for meals that I can prepare in it. 
  • We didn't quite get to two meals last week, so they'll roll into this week. I've found it helpful to have at least one meal that has mostly pantry ingredients, so that it can roll over to the next week if need be.


*Note: I include links to the recipes if they are available online. Some recipes are from cookbooks we have at home, and while I can't share the recipe I can direct you to the source. Other dishes or meals are created by myself or my husband, and we can do our best to explain how to recreate it. If you'd like additional information on any of the meals or our menu planning, then please feel free to contact me. :)
