It's *technically* still Monday and I'm finally getting a free moment to get my meal plan for the week posted. Luckily, my plan last week to double up my dinners and freeze the extras worked once again. I think I'm onto something here...!

Items that I doubled last week and froze are *bolded*.


Leftover cleanout - we had a bunch of little things in the fridge; easy!


Beef Enchiladas (using shredded pot roast from last week)


Cincinnati Chili + Coneys (translation: chilidogs, Cincy-style) and salad


Pulled Pork Sandwiches + corn on the cob + french fries


Grilled Burgers + Brats and Summer Potato Salad


Free night - busy weekend ahead


Kids Pick - I'm going to let my kiddos pick dinner for the night; my guess is that they'll opt for hot dogs and mac-n-cheese with big bowls of strawberries on the side.
