Keeping Up With...Food (Meal Plan for July 17 - July 23)

I did great last week with my plan last week to use up everything that we had in the house before it goes bad.  I had to throw away a few things, but nothing really big.  We still have a few cobs of corn left and 2 heads of romaine lettuce so we'll be using them up this week.  We changed our plan for Friday night because I noticed we had a lot of lunchmeat still left to use so I made sandwiches for us to eat while at Zoombeezi Bay & left the chicken frozen.  It worked out great & we will probably do it again in two weeks when we go!

The second half of the week is fairly easy because we're heading out of town to go camping with friends for the weekend.  We don't do a lot of cooking when we camp, we make it as easy as possible on our selves so we can just spend time together as a family having fun.  We'll be having donuts, bars & bagels for breakfast; sandwiches for lunch; and pizza or hot dogs and sausage for dinner.  We'll also pack a lot of snacks, drinks and wine so we'll be ready for a fun weekend!

Here's what we're eating this week:
Monday - Parmesan Tilapia with broccoli and corn on the cob
Tuesday - Taco Tuesday
Wednesday - Deli Meat Salads - to use up the lettuce & the deli meat we have
Thursday - Chicken Thighs with corn on the cob
Friday - Camping
Saturday - Camping
Sunday - picking something up on our way home from camping

Water flavor - Strawberry/Apple - using up the last of some fruit that won't make it more than a day or two

Overnight Oats - I actually have a bunch of these set up from last week that no one ate.  I made too many last week but Adrian also didn't eat them most mornings.  So we'll eat what we have and then just eat bars or something else for breakfast.

Clean it Out Challenge - I'll be using up the rest of the veggies we have (broccoli, corn on the cob & lettuce) this week.  I'm also making banana chocolate chip bread to use up some bananas.
