Menu Plan - July 18

First of all...

Happy Birthday to my Pops!  Hope your day has been extra special!!

Last week, we had a chance to check a lot of things off our "moving to-do" list, and it feels wonderful.  The freezer and pantry are looking much, much emptier.  This whole "eat from the pantry" quest has helped our grocery budget :)

I've also gotten to try out recipes in the toaster oven and stove top because it's been way too hot to even THINK about turning on the oven.  All of last week's meals were made this way!!

Last week, we enjoyed:

This week ... more "cool" summer recipes made from the crockpot, toaster oven and stove top!  Oh, and Friday, we're having our friends over to celebrate our anniversary a few days early.  We're recreating our wedding dinner and are super excited to share it with our friends.
