Saturday
Grilled Chicken
Buttered Noodles
Green Beans

Father’s Day
Eat Dad’s favorites today, and in our house that means beef, plus a yummy dessert. 
Make extra potatoes for Wednesday night.
Grilled Steak
Baked Potatoes
I know it’s hot out and you don’t want your oven on for a long time, so you can start your potato in the microwave for 3-5 minutes to start the cooking process, but let it finish in a 350 degree oven and you’ll avoid the typical gummy taste of a nuked potato. 
Peas
Chocolate Banana Pudding
Mix one package chocolate pudding with sliced bananas and nilla wafers.  Sounds a little different and it is, but it is a good different. 

Monday
Beans
Put your beans on to soak the night before and then you can cook them in the crock pot all day.  If you don’t want you kitchen to get hot, you can move your crock pot to a table on the porch, as long as you don’t have a dog that will jump up and eat the meal when it starts to smell good. 
Cornbread
Jiffy Mix is my favorite, with just a ½ tsp of sugar added for goodness.

Cantaloupe

Tuesday
Chocolate Chip Pancakes (Bisquick are our favorites)
Sausage Links
Orange Slices

Wednesday
Grilled Caprese Panini’s
Layer tomato slices, fresh basil, mozzarella, a little leftover chicken or steak from the weekend, on a French or sourdough roll.  Place a pat of butter in a hot skillet and add sandwich.  Place a heavy skillet on top to create the ‘press’ factor if you don’t have a Panini press. 
Home Fries
Peaches (canned or fresh)

Thursday
Spaghetti
Salad
Strawberries & Yogurt  

Friday
Fish Sticks
Tater Tots
Broccoli
