Keeping Up With...Food (Meal Plan for July 24 - July 30)

So our week went a little awry last week because we ended up cancelling our camping trip for the weekend.  We woke up Friday morning to rain in the forecast most of the time we would be at the campground, including some severe lightening.  Obviously that would not be safe for us to be in a tent so we stayed home and made an alternate plan.  We had to figure out dinners for Friday and Saturday, which we ended up grilling out on Friday with some of the meat we had for camping and picking up some frozen appetizers for Saturday because we were out all day and weren't very hungry when we got back home.

Sunday night we were able to get ribs from our favorite place at the Jazz and Ribs Festival that was happening downtown all weekend.  We were a little bummed that we were missing it this year since we'd be out of town and then as soon as we realized we'd be here, we made a plan to pick up ribs from Butch's and have them for dinner.  Since it was the last day of the festival, they thru in coleslaw and beans for free with our rack of ribs.  And we got two bottles of their amazing sauce so we can use it over the next few months.  Yum!!
This week is another fairly easy cooking week for me.  We are leading up to our "staycation" week which we will start on Sunday.  This Saturday we will spend the whole day cleaning and getting the house in order so we don't have to worry about anything during the whole next week while we're out and about exploring our own area.  We are all so excited for this adventure!!

Here's what we're eating this week:
Monday - Steaks on the grill & corn on the cob (Adrian got a great deal on this meat and we're excited to grill it!)
Tuesday - Meatball Subs
Wednesday - Chicken Thighs with corn on the cob - we never got to this last week, I'm not really sure why not. 
Thursday - Chili Mac
Friday - Sandwiches at Zoombeezi Bay for movie night
Saturday - Ravioli (Daniel has been asking for this & I wanted something easy since I'll be busy all day)
Sunday - Frozen appetizers after day 1 of our staycation - going to the zoo to ride the rides, feed the giraffes, etc

Water Flavor - Mango - Thank you Aldi for having them for 39 cents last week!

Overnight Oats - I had a bunch of bananas to use up so I set up Banana Chocolate Chip already for the week.  Adrian has been inconsistent about eating them so I'm going to wait and see how much we eat this week before deciding if I need to set up more.  If I do, it will be the Pumpkin Pie flavor because I still have one more serving of pumpkin to use up.
