Menu Plan Monday: June 25 - July 1

This week is a busy week at our home. I am needing to get clothes and suitcases packed for all 6 of us. Next Monday two are heading to camp, the oldest is going to spend the week with some family friends and the youngest is also heading to another family's house to spend the week. Hubby and I are hitting the road as soon as we drop the boys at camp for a little get away (here) to celebrate 20 years of marriage. The time away will be great, it's just the preparation that is hard. Add to that, we have 2 guests arriving the day after we all get home from our various travels(our missions pastor from our sending church and another close friend from the church). So this week is the week to get the house in shape too. We have doctor's visits on Thursday evening and Hubby has to spend extra hours at work to cover for his coworkers vacations. The kids and I are doing a modified version of Fly Lady's Summer Camp to try and whip the house into shape and also have some planned summer fun. They sat down with me today and we planned some fun, mostly low-prep, kid friendly meals for the week. The 2 middle boys celebrate their birthdays this Sunday and they will be choosing the menu for their birthday meal so Saturday and Sunday are open until they give me the details of what they are wanting to eat.
Here is the plan so far:

Brunch (we really slept in today) fried eggs or omelettes, toast, juice
Supper (I got home late from Dr's appt) sandwiches (cold cuts), chips, pears

Breakfast: Oatmeal with brown sugar
Lunch: BLTs, chips, cucumber slices
Dinner: broccoli egg casserole, green salad, fried fish filets
After dinner S'mores over the gas stove and game night

Breakfast: 90 minute cinnamon rolls
Lunch: Cheeseburgers
Dinner: fried rice
After dinner -- skit night

Breakfast: french toast
Lunch: homemade macaroni and cheese, hotdogs
Dinner: (will be after doctor's appts.) cold cuts, cheese and crackers, devilled eggs
After dinner -- To be determined later

Breakfast: zuchini bread, fresh fruit, yogurt
Lunch: Tunafish sandwiches
Dinner: BBQ Cola meatballs in crockpot, rice
After dinner: video night with the babysitter

????? maybe we can talk son #3 into having his "birthday dinner" a day early

Dinner chosen by the birthday boy (son #2). I believe he has chosen breaded chicken filets, broccoli or cauliflower (fresh broccoli is hard to find this time of year) and I'm not sure what else.

Head on over to Laura's for more great menu plans.

I fixed the link to the cinnamon rolls. Thanks for letting me know it didn't work. The only thing I do differently is that I cook them in a big cake pan instead of the muffin tins they suggest.
