What's For Supper: Menu August 18, 2014

Now that school has started again, I am adjusting to our new routine, which means bringing back organization and structure. Everything goes a little haywire when we enjoy the freedom from schedule and routine during the summer break and the most visible victim of our laxness is the budget and that is due to the lack of meal planning. We tend to eat out much more in the summer ("Hey," the hubby says, "how about picking up takeout and heading for the park for an impromptu picnic?") and the budget goes out the window. So I thought I would hold my (our) feet to the fire (so to speak) by making my weekly menu part of the blog. I hope it will help inspire others that need to get budget-serious and maybe pass a new family-favorite recipe on as well.

Menu Plan for August 18th - 24th

We entertained dear friends this weekend and I am using some of the yummy leftovers from our weekend together as well as freshly harvested vegetables (green beans, tomatoes, cucumbers)  from the garden in this week's menu...both are budget-friendly helps.
