Menu Plan {June 19th-June 25}

I think things are finally getting back to normal after our vacation to Oregon and this last week of getting some work done around our house. And I am more than ready for a more regular routine.

The weather here in Oklahoma though has been quite warm hot and it looks like it is going to stay that way through this week. Well, okay it is summer in Oklahoma, it is going to be hot until October, but it has been hotter than normal for June here.

And because of all the hot weather I have switched to some of my summertime favorites for our menu this week. This means lots of grilling and things like taco salad. In other words mostly items that do not require the use of the oven.

I did put zucchini pizza on the plan because we have a lot of zucchini coming from our garden right now and it is one of my kids favorite ways to eat it.

What is your favorite summertime meal to make when the weather gets hot?



Fruit Frappe and Eggs


Yogurt and Granola bars

Freezer Smoothies and Toast


Steak and Macaroni Salad

Bacon Pasta (new recipe)

Grilled Pork Chops (new recipe) and Potato Salad

Taco Salad (using freezer taco meat)


Chicken Tortilla Casserole (new recipe)

Zucchini Pizza

  1. Looks yummy – we’re constantly amending our menu plan too because of the abundance from our garden. It’s a good problem to have, but it can strain my creativity! 😉

  2. I would say for our family it is salads and lots of grillin. One of my favorite salads is my Big Skinny Greek Salad http://www.skinnymomskitchen.com/2011/05/03/big-skinny-greek-salad/ this salad is huge, filling, yummy, and healthy!

  3. Looks good! Do you have any problem with squash bugs on your zucchini? Mine were producing beautifully and the squash bugs attacked yet again. I’ve been using Sevin dust, but they keep returning. I’m about to give up on squash.

    • @Rachel, Yes we do have problems with squash bugs. This year we lost one plant to them. And I told my husband the same thing, I may just give up on them this year if we can’t get them under control.

  4. Yummy looking menu! I wonder if I can pass off zucchini on pizza to kids and hubby – might have to peel it.
