Menu Plan Monday ~ July 6/15

Menu Plan Monday for the week of July 6th - recipes and dinner planning inspiration

Hi everyone!  Happy July!!  I hope you all had a fabulous weekend of celebration :)  If you are experiencing some heat where you live why not pull out your slow cooker and plan your menu using this lovely little worker bee.  If you are looking for recipes I have quite a few pinned HERE.  Most require no fancy ingredients or extra time to prepare.  You can’t go wrong!

Recipe Highlight:

I forgot to share with you last week this EASY dessert recipe for Apple Cinnamon Pull Aparts that I made a couple of weeks ago.  Seriously it’s two ingredients and from what everyone told me, absolutely delicious!  You just take some canned apple pie filing and a container of Pillsbury Grands Cinnamon Rolls, mix them together, bake it and you’ve got dessert for your family or for your guests.

A dollop of whip cream goes well with it!
