Menu Plan {August 7th-13th}

The heat wave may be over later this week here in Oklahoma. A cold front is headed our way and it is cooling down to ninety-six degrees by the end of the week. And no I am not joking, that really is a cold front when we had multiple days over one hundred and ten last week. We will be thrilled if we cool off to ninety-six.

Ninety-six degrees means that I might actually turn on the oven one day and get some baking done. I miss muffins, cookies, and all the other yummy homemade baked goods I love to make.

With all this hot weather, our breakfast menu is starting to look the same every week. We have been eating a lot smoothies, cold cereal, and yogurt, and not a lot else. So, this week I am sharing just our dinner plan, because really our breakfast choices have not been very exciting.

How is the weather where you are? Has it changed the way you have been cooking?

Here is the plan for the week.


breakfast for dinner

Simple Pasta Sauce and vegetables

Rice Cooker Macaroni and Cheese and Hot Dogs

Cheeseburger Pizza- I made this last week and grilled it and everyone loved it. I will post the recipe soon.

Tomato Tuna Pasta and Salad

Grilled Cheese and Bacon Sandwiches

Bacon Quesadillas and fruit

  1. I love your Tomato Tuna pasta recipe. I’ll have to try the rice cooker macaroni and cheese.

  2. Yes this extreme OK heat has caused me to massively alter my cooking habits! Ugh! We are eating mostly salads, which is a challenge because the kids don’t really care for much in the way of vegetables and I cannot have starch or sugar on my diet.

  3. I’ll have to try some of these recipes. I tried two recipes from your Quick and Easy Dinners this week and got RAVE reviews! The bowtie skillet lasagna was a definite winner last night. Thanks for new meal ideas!
