Meal Planning Week 1 - Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Week 1 Goal:  I love baking, but hate heating up the house with the oven during the summer.  My goal is to double up on my baking to utilize an already hot oven for multiple items and to use the toaster oven and bbq grill when possible.

I will update this entry with my notes during the week
 and hope to share a couple of recipes in another post.

  • Oatmeal - gotta love a kid that still loves oatmeal
  • Meatball Sandwiches - a real hit with my guys and really delicious on toasted Italian bread
  • Dinner out at our favorite Mexican restaurant - shared fajitas with DH and still had leftovers
  • Whole Grain Blueberry and Orange Cranberry Muffins - blueberry was a hit, but the OC flopped
  • Picnic - Sandwiches, Carrot and Celery Sticks and Grapes - picnic rained out, but still enjoyed yummy super sweet grapes
  • Grilled Honey Lime Chicken, Grilled Zucchini and Squash, and Grilled Corn on the Cob and Apple Spice Minicakes - Accepted a dinner invitation instead - yummy homemade lasagna
  • Eggs, Bacon and Biscuits - woke up my guys with a surprise breakfast in bed
  • Selection of cheese, crackers, bread. and fruit - a great break from house cleaning & DS discovered he likes brie!
