Menu Plan Monday ~ July 11/16 + announcement

Menu Plan Monday for the week of July 11/16 - recipe links and menu planning inspiration at I'm an Organizing Junkie blog

Hi everyone! Happy summer Menu Plan Monday to you. Don’t you just love summer? I sure do! I love having my kids home and hanging out together. My youngest son (10) and I have been going out on a long bike ride every morning which is a great way to get the day going before I settle in to get some blog stuff done.


I wanted to let you know that there will be no Menu Plan Monday for the next two weeks. It’s quieter in terms of participation in the summer so I thought it would be a good time to take a little break. So there will be no MPM on July 18 and 25th but I’ll be back here sharing my menu as usual on August 1st. Hope you’ll come back and join me then!


Speaking of summer, I’ve been bookmarking some S’mores recipes lately to make for my family and thought you might like to enjoy them too!

S’mores Dip


S’mores Cobbler

Smores Cobbler

Crispy & Chewy S’mores Cookies


Organize a Kids’ Drawer:

Rachel was on the blog this past weekend sharing how she organized a kids’ drawer to make it easier for her daughter to help in the kitchen. I use to do this too, such a great idea! Check it out HERE.

    I love the laid back meals that happen in the summer time. Breakfast for dinner is the best! My daughter loves the s’mores dip recipe you shared. Looking forward to seeing what you are making again in August!

    love MPM but understand the need for a break and summer is the perfect time! Look forward to its return, and in the meantime, I’ll take the time to explore some links and ideas I may have missed in the past!
