Someone loves corn on the cob!

Most of the meals actually got made last week!  I only have one meal that I’m carrying over and the cheesecake dessert.  You know what else I love about menu planning?  Impromptu guests.  We had Jesse’s Dad over for dinner one night and I didn’t even panic because I had plenty of food to feed us all and knew exactly what I was making.  That also, makes menu planning worth it!

Here’s what I’ve got in mind for this week:

Pesto Pepperoni Pizza, salad

Cheesy Chicken Orzo, steamed veggies

BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwiches (Slow Cooker), corn on the cob, Southwest salad (minus the chicken)

Cheesy Beef & Rice, steamed veggies, salad

Out for Dinner

Dessert:  Lemon Cheesecake Bars with Raspberries

 Once again, I did my grocery shopping first so you can see what I bought and paid!
