This is what we are going to have on the menu using the groceries I purchased this week and the stockpile in my pantry and freezer from previous weeks and months of $60 shopping lists. Remember that one of my New Year's goals is to serve a meatless meal once a week, and we have three theme nights per week: Taco Tuesday, Pizza Friday, and Breakfast for dinner on Sundays.

It is HOT this week so most everything will be made outside on the grill.
Monday-Family Dinner, I'm in charge of entertainment
Tuesday-Taco Night!  Tostadas

Wednesday- Finger Lickin' BBQ chicken, mashed taters, Stella's brocolli salad, biscuits and freezer jam
Thursday- Monterey Chicken Salad (with leftover chicken from Wednesday), breadsticks
Friday-Pizza night! On the grill Pepperoni and Cheeselovers
Saturday- Hot Dogs, Pasta Salad, Fruit Chunks
Sunday-Breakfast for dinner! Waffles
