Menu Plan Monday: Starting a New Month


I am so excited for the beginning of June and eating and preparing lots of summer foods: cold pasta salads, fruit salads, corn on the cob, hamburgers and bratwursts. We have already started eating some of our lunches outdoors and we'll soon be doing daily. I especially love to eat breakfast outside in the morning. It is a beautiful way to start the day.
We will be doing our monthly grocery shopping this morning. I always get excited abouot coming home with all of the food and filling up our fridge, freezer, and pantry. (Yeah, I know it's a little silly, but that's just me!) Our meals this week will focus around beginning to stock the freezer for the rest of the month. Here is what we will be eating:
Breakfast
M - Waffles
T - Chocolate Chip Muffins (double for freezer)
W - French toast (triple for freezer)
Th - Oatmeal and bananas
F - Banana bread french toast
Su - Pancakes (triple for freezer)
Lunch

T - Ham & cheese sandwiches, yogurt, grapes
W - Pizza grilled cheese, carrot sticks

Your week sounds good. You're not the only mom who gets excited when you re-stock the fridge and pantry. I do too! I think it's because I like having resources at my fingertips.
I'm going to have to try the garlic chicken & spinach w/spaghetti dish. Sounds delish.

Your menu looks yummy! I haven't had BLTs since last harvest, can't wait for fresh tomatoes!

I haven't had stuffed shells in years!

Sounds good!

A Grammatical Disclaimer

I freely admit to consistently using improper grammar in the following areas:
1. I like run-on sentences.
2. I have a tendency to end sentences with a pronoun. (I really do. I can't help it.)
3. I always seem to use passive voice in my sentences. (See?)

I've been trying to break this habit, unsuccessfully, for years, so now I just accept that as my writing style, and since I'm not writing for grades anymore, I embrace it. (Again, see?)

Hence, I invoke Blogger Artistic License for this blog!
