  • Menu Plan Monday: I have to bake in the heat!

    I had that fabulously productive baking day on Friday, but I have to contribute something to a school event on this week, which means I have to bake in 90+ degree weather. When I have to bake in the heat, I try to make a bunch of things at once and turn the oven on no more than once a week, so I’ll also plan on making corncake (thanks for the suggestion, Brandy!), coffee cake, cinnamon rolls and pop tarts too. But we’ll still have to eat “real” food for dinner :)

    Monday – Beef tacos with the fixings (lettuce, cheese, etc.)

    Tuesday – Grilled pizza (so I don’t have to turn on the oven), salad

    Wednesday – Tuna Pasta Salad, served over lettuce

    Thursday – Roast chicken (in the slow cooker, not the oven), flat bread, mashed potatoes, garlic sauce

    Friday – Chicken nachos, salad

    Saturday – Breakfast (waffles, eggs, bacon or sausage)

    Sunday – Dinner out
