Menu for week of 7/11 - 7/17

We're in the 100's, but Ian wanted spaghetti this week and we got a super deal on ground beef so we did a bunch of ground meat up-  a few meals worth of regular meatballs, some baby meatballs to make soup and a couple of meatloafs-  it's work, but much easier to make it all at once and use as needed than to have to make at each meal.  Plus, they are pre-baked so no more oven just drop in sauce, soup or use the meatloaf for sandwiches or nuke and we're good to go.

We aren't huge fans of once a month cooking (for several reasons, the main one being that we don't eat that many casseroles and/or the texture changes on most of them) but we love having a lot of easy meals we can toss together handy and by doing this it just gives us that many more options.  Plus, only one clean up. ;-)

As usual, the meals will probably not be eaten in this order, we'll go by what we're doing and how hot it is and how lazy we are ;-)  but here's what our menu looks like- what's cooking at your house this week?

Panko crusted oven baked fish; spicy oven fries; green beans; fresh fruit

Spaghetti with meatballs; garlic bread; salad.

Light and easy Chinese chicken salad

Baby back ribs; fresh sweet corn; potato packets with seasoning and onions all on the grill.

Italian beef sandwiches; fresh fruit

Crockpot Italian wedding soup; hot crusty bread; fresh fruit

Roasted or grilled chicken; refreshing berry salad
