Menu Plan: Week of 7/19/10

Here it is, Sunday evening, and I haven't done a stitch of grocery shopping for the week. We are expecting my in-laws to come for a visit this Thursday through Sunday, so I expect I will be doing some grocery shopping mid-week. For now, though, the first part of this week's menu is based solely on what I already have in the house.

Raisin Bran Muffins (will post recipe soon)
Buttermilk pancakes (will post recipe soon - from the freezer)
cereal and toast

Picnic lunches (PB&J, fruit slices, chips)
chicken strips, cottage cheese and fruit

Monday: Spaghetti with slow-cooker marinara sauce, frozen green beans, apple slices

Tuesday: leftover spaghetti and/or Poor Man's Pizza made with leftover sauce

Thursday: Chicken Tacos (made in the slow cooker and ready whenever the in-laws arrive in town), chips, refried beans

Friday: BBQ Chicken Wings on the grill, corn on the cob, pasta salad

Saturday: grilling out - hamburgers, hot dogs and all the fixins'

Sunday: ??? my vote is out to eat! :-)

Extras and baking:
Cupcakes (for my daughter's "Princess Pool Party" on Thursday)
