Weekly Menu Plan #33

Summer is an interesting season.  With the absence of school, routine seems to fly out the door and spontaneity runs rampant.  I'm not complaining, really.  It's a nice little break.  But meal planning, especially with real food, doesn't mesh well with spur-of-the-moment shindigs (or the lack of energy for food prep afterwards).  So my goal for the rest of the summer is to keep things as simple as possible, and to have staples on hand that can easily morph into a different meal than what might be planned if need be.  Like last week I had plans for a crock pot chicken dish but forgot to put it in the crock pot.  It ended up getting breaded and pan fried (and the people rejoiced!).
