Menu Plan Monday - Week of June 29, 2014

Our Tuesday Night Dinner Last Week:
Marinara sauce with LOTS of veggies - green beans, broccoli, red onions, garlic, and yellow tomatoes.
Shell-shaped noodles.
Garlic bread made with flat, gourmet bread from the freezer.
Steamed artichokes.

I actually remembered to take some photos of our food this week!  So now I just have to remember to post them!

I have a goal for July to see how little I can spend on groceries - I will buy milk and maybe butter, depending on how things go and maybe a few other things.  We have a well stocked house, the two CSAs and a gift certificate for a couple loaves of bread from a local bakery.  We should be just fine.

This coming week has the 4th of July (Independence Day) on Friday and John home two days this week, including Friday.  We're excited about that since it seems like he's been at his Internship more than he's been home this summer partly due to a lot of overnights and a fairly lengthy commute (it's amazing what people refer to as "local" here in the metro!). We have lots of pot lucks this week to attend.  We also have a funeral this week that will be serving us dinner as well.
