July 5th - July 11th

I hope everyone had a great 4th!  We had a pajama day here at the Myers' house.  Madison had to come home from Canada early for a family matter. Her flight got in late Tuesday night, and we were up until about 3am hearing all about her Canadian adventures.  I'm sorry she had to come home early, but I am so happy she is home at the same time.  On the 4th we spent the morning making coleslaw, potato salad, and bbq pulled chicken.  We ate on that all day while watching movies. It was a very lazy day, but we had a great time just hanging out.

Last week I wasn't feeling well, so I wasn't able to make the dinners I had planned. I ended up putting a lot of stuff in the freezer, so I am repeating a lot of the plan for last week to clean out the freezer.

Thursday - Spaghetti and Meatballs

Friday - Steaks, baked potato, and a salad

Saturday - Homemade Pizza

Sunday - Meatball Subs and fries

Monday - Garlicky Pork Stir-fry (recipe is here)

Tuesday - Mac and Cheese  (Madison and I are still trying to find the perfect cheese combo. This time around we are making it with butterkase and fontina and maybe a little cheddar. Will post recipe if it turns out as good as I think it will)

Wednesday - leftover night

Shopping List - I have the spaghetti sauce and noodles on hand as well as everything I need for the pork stir-fry - so if you plan to make those recipes be sure to add the ingredients you need to this list.
