Chicken with rice
Homemade Pizza
Salsa Sloppy Joes with mac and cheese
Chili on Fritos with cheese
Leftovers and Chopped Salad

This week we are picking out a few meals to eat and moving them around as needed as we have been doing this summer.  It is helpful because I never know what is going to go on during the day so I hope that we can get dinner on the table as quickly as we need that night.

So last week I didn't even get the menu flipped over to August so I didn't have a clue what we were having and we started the week out of town.  I was a little confused over what day it was but I went back over it with a little help from my husband and came up with what we ate last week.  I got a little better with a few things filled out for the rest of the month and took a quick inventory of the basement freezer.

Monday we went to lunch at the Cheesecake Factory and my cousin and Aunt paid for it with gift cards because we paid for mini golf and maze before which was way cheaper.  For dinner we made quesdillas from the leftover taco meat, white rice for my son, buffalo chicken mac and cheese and lots of leftovers.  Tuesday we had a picnic between the ropes course that the boys did and laser tag and science museum which took all day.  We also got to go to the event there where they fit my son with a new bike helmet.

Tuesday dinner was BBQ chicken, mac and cheese, and buffalo chicken pasta.  Wednesday we left to come home and had lunch in the car with a continuation of dinner in the car with a stop at Little Caesars for pizza for $5.30 and McDonald's for big soda for $2.12.

Thursday we did lots with cleaning around the house and unpacking and the boys did mini golf and the pool so dinner was late and we had some quick pasta.  Friday had my parents coming in to town and we had chicken tacos with rice and corn on the cob.  Saturday we had a birthday party so we had pizza for lunch and we made Olive Oil Pasta with zucchini and corn on the cob for dinner.

Sunday was Grilled Spedies Chicken and pineapple with white rice and salad (with the last of the corn on the cob that my parents bought).  My parents always stop at farm stands and bring lots of produce or things to use up out of their fridge when they come to visit.  It is always the challenge to find all the uses for what they bring we we enjoyed the amazing corn on the cob lots!
