Meal List for July

I decided to publicly post my menu list to hopefully keep me more accountable to fixing meals at home rather than opting for the "I'm Tired", or "I didn't get anything out for dinner". In April I won the Make - Ahead Meals for Busy Moms Cookbook by Jane Doiron from Liz at Hoosier Homemade. I took that as a “sign” that I really needed to get back into the habit of creating make-ahead meals. Now that summer is upon us, it is a little more difficult to come up with meals I can make and store in the freezer for another time because I don’t want to turn on my oven. None-the-less, I came up with the following menu plan and I will see if I can stick to it. Another thing to help me remain accountable is that I am going to try to photograph each of the meals that I make and post them here on Not Just Paper and Glue to share with you all. That means, if you like recipes, you need to check back each week to see how I have been keeping up. Now, I won’t be featuring every single meal, but I hope to bring you at least one or two a week. You will also notice that I duplicate my meals which cuts down the menu planning and the preparation. If I fix one meal, I can easily fix two and freeze the other; saves on time, preparation, and clean up.

You will also notice that I only posted the main portion of the meal because I fix veggies that I already have on hand and whatever sounds good for that particular day. Not much planning in that department – sorry.
