July Menu

Hello! I used to be in this comm a loooong time ago and decided to re-join. I'm back to doing monthly menus: It's summer so I have time; we've spent too much on too many grocery trips and eating out; I'm pregnant and want to eat better; monthly menus will make life easier when the school year starts (we're both hs teachers) and when the baby's here.

So here is my July menu. I started it on the 6th (plus we were out of town until then).

Eh, it isn't too bad. I've made a "draw from the baggie" of menu items. That makes it easy. I just came up with 30-40 different main dishes, and voila!
