What's for Dinner Menu Plan

Can you believe it's already the third week of June? Our summer has been a hot one so far, with temperatures in the mid 90s since the beginning of the month. That's not normal for southwest Missouri. It's usually pretty nice this time of year. Luckily, this weekend we finally had a drop in temps and it was fantastic! I couldn't have asked for a better anniversary present (yes, I've been married 19 years!). We got to enjoy our backyard fire pit on Saturday, and we took a day trip to see the Ozarks Medieval Fortress. My son loves knights and castles, so this was right up his alley.

Today we dropped him off at Missouri Scholars Academy (a.k.a. "nerd camp"). It's a pretty big honor to be selected to attend, and I know he'll have a great time hanging out with other smarty pants kids, but I'm definitely going to miss him. Because he's gone, I'll get to eat some things he won't usually eat, so you'll actually see fish on the menu this week.

I'm glad to hear that many of you enjoyed the June Bug's from last week's menu as much as we did in my family. We've also been enjoying the chocolate freezer pie. If you haven't tried it yet, put it on your menu this week. Your family will love you for it. :)

Here's this week's menu. Enjoy and have a great week! Be sure to follow me on Facebook to get fast updates from the blog. :)

Sunday- eat out for anniversary (which is actually tomorrow)

Wednesday -Fish Tacos, Salad, Applesauce

Okay, Cynthia, I HAD to write to you after tonight's post...I have followed (and loved) your WFD blog for the past year. I don't mean to sound creepy, but our lives seem to have many parallels. I also have a son who's into math, was a drummer in HS marching band and went to Missouri Scholars' Academy. It's what sold him on MU, where he just finished his freshman year. Corey will love MSA! Thanks for all the great recipes...especially Ott's casserole. That must have come after my time at SMSU or I would have eaten there every day. I also work at an elementary school in STL doing tech support for teachers. Our librarian went to one of your development sessions at Tan-Tar-A last year and told me all about the cool tech things you're doing in Branson. I am also a recipe junkie who would love to blog, but could never find the time, so your faithful posts are wonderful. I wish we could sit over a June Bug one day and chat!
