Monthly Menu: July

Is it just me or did June go by in the blink of an eye? I put together my meal plan for July this past week. Read about why I decided to start planning for the entire month HERE. My July menu is a mix of my family’s favorite recipes from past summers, plus a few new recipes that I’ll be trying for the first time. I dedicated one night a week to eating out this month. Use THIS blank monthly menu to customize a plan to best meet your own needs. If you are looking for additional summer meal ideas check out my June monthly menu HERE.
