The Challenges of Summer Menu Plan and Recipes

Summers are so crazy around here with vacations and such. I'm struggling with keeping up the weekly menu plan. How about you? I like having the food on hand to make whenever it might be needed because it saves everyone money in the long run. I miss the routine that Fall gives. It will be here in 6 weeks so I'm trying to be patient. 

salad recipes
Asian Chicken Salad with Cilantro Dressing-I'm buying a cooked chicken at the store.
Fruit & Yogurt

BLT Pizza (teens love this)
Huge salad using fresh garden tomatoes
quiche recipes
Wednesday- Makin' Breakfast
French Toast Casserole- for kids
Crustless Spinach Quiche- healthier choice for me and I'm leaving out the potatoes to cut down on the carbs.
Fruit Salad Kabobs
Crock Pot Italian Sausage & Peppers- Three choices with this meal. Eat with pasta, eat as a sandwich or eat just sausage and veggies on a plate. I will give the family a choice. They will pick choice 1 or 2 and either way I will eat mine without the bread or pasta to cut down on my carbs. I could use whole wheat pasta but no one likes it around here but me.
No bake peanut butter bars
Friday- (left overs) and/or Homemade Pizza

Saturday & Sunday- No cooking. Check my Recipe Box for something fun.
I link up at  menu!


  1. Thanks so much for link party and the recipes look fabulous! Going to make the Crockpot Italian Sausages! Have a great week!

  2. Hi Susie,
    I love your BLT Pizza. Hope you have a good week and thanks for hosting!

  3. I am totally with you. I can't keep a proper routine in the summer since there are so many new activities changing all the time. :) My menu plan is sort of a suggestion rather than a full on plan in the summer. Thanks for hosting.

  4. I'm in the same boat with chaos. It is hard to get anything done (chores, cooking, etc.) with the kids at home all day. Hang in there!
