Menu Plan Monday

I have an abbreviated menu again this week. When I was making it yesterday morning, I knew there was a chance we would be having guests later this week, but didn't know for sure. So I only made it through Thursday. Now I know that Rich's parents will be arriving Friday, so I'll have to plan a menu for the long weekend. (I don't mean it will be a long weekend because my in-laws will be here, by the way...long weekend, as in Memorial weekend.) Anyway, here's what's on slate (or should I say "on plates" this week).'s pretty obvious how dang tired I am this morning, isn't it?!!

*burgers on the grill/steak fries/cantaloupe

*salsa pasta/Italian bread

*stir fry (courtesy of Rich)

*almost stuffed peppers/muffins (of undetermined variety at this point)

Now, I need to come up with "the company menu". As much as I love having guests, I always have the hardest time trying to decide what to cook...

As always, thank you to our hard-working hostess, Laura! Pop on over there for loads of yummy menu ideas.

I love your peppers recipe! Haven't had anything like that in a while.
And your upcoming holiday weekend sounds like fun.

Looks good! :o) I *love* planning the menu for when company will be here. David's Dad is coming the first week of July and I've already starting talking about what we'll be eating, LOL.

Hope your cantaloupe is good! We had some at my brother in laws house on Saturday and it was the juiciest cantaloupe I've ever had. Sooooooooo good!

That sounds good, and I bet you'll come up with something wonderful for your family/guests - even if it's just more burgers on the grill! I want to come eat with you then, I never get cantalope any more. I love them, but my hubby won't eat them, so I never buy a whole one for myself. I can't eat it before it gets all mushy :(

Hope you have a great week and a wonderful holiday weekend!!!

Fun stuff! Say "Hi!" to Uncle Travis and Aunt Joyce for me, please. I think Cousin Kris's wedding was the last time I saw them, and that was quite a while back.

We love pasta salad this time of year with lots of fresh veggies in it! Thanks :-)

Looks great Debi. Enjoy your long weekend. Hubby has to work on Mem. day, so no big plans here. Hope you all have a wonderful time!
