Menu Plan Monday

I'm back from my trip...  a little frustrated by some events, but ob la di, ob la da.  I don't have a ton of time to catch up, but I wanted to put in my menu planning for the week.  As soon as Bean gets up from his morning nap, we're heading for the grocery store. I tend to do my shopping on Sunday evenings so I can go without the kids, but certain events from my trip kept me from doing so.  More about that later!  I just hope I can survive the store with two kids.  Last time, Cocoa had a complete meltdown, and I was "that mom".  Whatever... at least I'm not the mom who shoves candy in her kids hands to get them to stop throwing a fit.  That doesn't teach them anything except that throwing a fit gets them what they want.

Monday: Mini pizza bagels, watermelon, green beans (I have an appointment and Mr. Pepper has a dinner planned with friends... this is for the kids).
Tuesday: Hot dogs, mac n cheese, fruit (Mr. Pepper is interviewing all night)
Wednesday: Hamburgers, fries/tater tots, watermelon
Thursday: Grilled salmon, fried zucchini, blueberries
Friday: Grilled chicken breasts marinated in Italian dressing, corn on the cob, strawberries
Saturday and Sunday: out of town for Fourth of July

Pretty simple week.  I'm trying not to overdue things since I never know when we'll have a showing for the house.  We had an open house yesterday. Only one couple came through but they seemed very interested, had just sold their home in another city, and were looking for a quick move!  Here's hoping they like our answers to their questions!

looks like a wonderful week of good eats!
