Menu for July 26th-Aug 4th

okay...so I know that making a menu, then making a grocery list is the easiest way to make my life easier...
YET I continue to fight this...and fight it when I need order most!
the last week was crazy  with it being our VBS week...
(side note: with my husband being the Children's Pastor and me being the Early Childhood Director at our church, VBS...Vacation Bible School...this week is BIG!)
and yet I failed to make a grocery list or a menu...so the last week was sort of mildly crazy and made more so by my lack of planning...
after spending half the day with 30+ preschoolers/kindergarteners
YES  30+...one day it was 35 of them...
with one other adult and 3 teen helpers...we might have been breaking so sort of code...
the last thing you want is to come home and make dinner...or even think about dinner...
anyways...
I digress...

I made a menu AND went grocery shopping...yes...on a Sunday no less...with one child in tow...
(menu disclaimer to my husband...all menu items are subject to change according to the cooks discretion...and or willingness to cook in a hot kitchen...at anytime during the week of said menu you may choose to show your wife love by taking her out to dinner with or without the children!)

So glad you put that disclaimer for Beau! It's been a fly by the seat of my pants around here too! Let's see.....nachos with chili beans for 3 days in a row for lunch......today it was add another can of chili to leftover beans-pour over bottom of the bag tortilla chips-top with shredded cheese and bake for 20 minutes. 4 days of eating off the same blueberry streusel coffee cake for breakfast.......Your menu sounds Gourmet! Tell your 5 year old happy birthday and soon you will be doing the happy dance to kindergarden!
