Monthly Meal, Success? Maybe.

Last month we decided we needed to dive back in to meal planning; we knew though that we eat left overs a lot plus have take away a few times a month. So how many meals do we really need? We sat down as a family and talked about it and decided on 20. The boys gave ideas too, it wasn’t just me thinking of things to feed my family for a month. We sit at the table while we talk and discuss things we like and how we want to try new things. We look through my obscene amount of cookbooks for someone who doesn’t do the majority of the cooking. We also had to plan one of the meals for The Dresden Files Game group. That meal was included in the 20 meals. I bet you are wondering how many of the 20 meals did we make and eat. Well we made 15 out of the 20, with plans to make the other 5 this month. This month we decided that we would go with 15 instead of 20. There were some old stand byes, but we had some stand out favorites and I will share those below and what we are most excited for this month.

July Stand Outs:

Mississippi Roast and Mashed Potatoes (I just googled a recipe)

Shredded Chicken Tacos (we made this up as we went)

Excited for August:

French Dip Sandwiches (Made in the Slow Cooker)

Pulled Pork Sandwiches

What are you planning on cooking for August? Anything exciting you are cooking? Please leave me comment to help give me ideas.
