2013 Spring/ Summer Menu

I like to plan a six week menu at a time I have one for the Fall/ Winter and one for the Summer/ Spring. 

The kids take turns helping to cook dinner. Monday's is my son Nolan, Tuesday's is Aidan, Wednesday's Pat, Thursday's Kathryn, Friday's Conner, and Saturday and Sunday me and Sarah. With work schedules this sometimes changes but we try to make it work.

The menu is only a guide if I have left overs that need to be used a meal may be bumped for the leftovers. If I find a great price on a different cut of meat I'll get it and fit it in somewhere. Most of our meals are chicken and ground beef based.

There is also a bit of a theme to the days

Sunday- is a meal that takes a lot of effort and time
Monday- is Mexican based
Tuesday- is crock pot and odd meals the kids like
Wednesday- is grill based meals
Thursday- is pasta
Friday - is pizza
Saturday - is soup, salad and bread. The soup and bread I make up in the morning before the day gets busy.
