~ July 2015 Menu Plan ~

My July 2015 Menu Plan is a little more extravagant than usual. School’s out for summer! The kids are super excited to be on break. And this Mama is so happy to have a little extra time in the afternoons to prepare some fun new recipes.

During the school year, the menu can become a little bit monotonous because our afternoons are filled with homework, school activities and just general chit chat about our separate days. There just isn’t time for playing around with time consuming meals and so, we eat a lot of variations of our favorites.

Summer on the other hand, offers us hours of afternoon playtime in the kitchen or outside at the grill. Now that the girls are older, it’s so much fun to include them in the cooking and meal preparation. There aren’t quite as many messes to clean up afterwards and a whole lot less pouting. 🙂

So, now that they’re home for the summer, I’m adding a whole slew of new recipes to our menu plan.

Normally, I include a “What I’ve been up to” section in my menu plan each month, but I’ve decided to make that a separate post from now on. For now, below is the July 2015 Menu Plan.

There are lots of links to new recipes on here! Many of them I’ve tried before and loved or I plan to try out for the first time this month (and hope to love!).

I hope you enjoy trying them out, too!
