How did your week go? Are you finding it harder or easier to menu plan in the summer? Are you pulling out the crockpot to avoid heating up the kitchen? How about enjoying yummy summer salads? I love a good potato or pasta salad, something you just can’t beat on a hot day that is for sure. For some summer recipes you might be interested in this free pdf from Econobusters called Molly Green FRESH.
I hosted a packing party the other night (such a great way to attack the task at hand) and made up the Bacon Cheese Dip in a Bread Bowl for my guests. Unfortunately I ended up having to throw the whole thing out because it was sooo salty from all the bacon. Toni suggests using bacon bits instead so I’ll definitely give that a try next time. I’m getting down to bare bones in my fridge and freezer so it will be interesting to see how this week plays out for me.
Oh and before I forget I did want to let you know that I’ve updated my Menu Planning Resources page a little bit so if you haven’t had a chance to check it, please do. Some very helpful links there.
So here’s what I’ll be eating this week…..maybe :)
Monday: The Single Lady Pancake (gotta love a name like that!)
Tuesday: Thai Chicken Pizza
Wednesday: Grilled Cheese with Tomato
Thursday: Leftover buffet
Friday: Dinner out
Saturday: Appy Night ~ Layered Black Bean Dip
Sunday: Church potluck ~ Black Bean and Corn Chicken Taco Bake (4 ingredients!)

Mr. Linky was out of commission today so I’m trying inlinkz instead. I’ve seen inlinkz used on a few blogs and I love that the links are displayed with a thumbnail image. You get to select any image from your blog or blog post.
So let’s give it a go and see how it works out (please let me know your preference). Click on the frog face below to add your link.
