Menu Plan: July 27 - August 2
Our plans for next weekend are still up in the air, so I'm not sure if our menu planning will stick for that part of the week. However, the rest should be pretty stable. It's heating up again, so I'm going to try to get as many trips to the pool as possible this week. I didn't get the breakfast casserole recipe posted, as our internets have been spotty for much of this week. I will try to post that in the next couple days, after talking to our ISP.
This afternoon was our church picnic, so we filled up there for linner and ate veggies, fruit, leftover lunch meat, olives, toast, and potato salad left over from the picnic for a semi-dinner. I couldn't find a way not to cook at all this week, in the heat, but I'm trying to use the oven as little as possible, and I'm using the slow cooker for the short ribs.
Our apricots are ripening well, so we'll probably be eating a whole lot of them in the coming weeks, as well as preserving and freezing as many as we can. Those of you who are local to us may want to check in and see if you can come pick, too, as we will have extras.
