A Dinner a Day in June and Menu Plan Monday

"Summer is a comin' on" in our part of the world, so I have changed to our summer eating pattern of a hot meal at noon (dinner) and a light, usually cold, meal in the evening (supper).  That way, any use of the oven or slow cooker is confined to the cooler hours of the day.  

Monday: Hot Pastrami Sandwiches, Cole Slaw, Cantaloupe

Tuesday:  Slow Cooker Chicken, Savory Sweet Potatoes, Peaches

Wednesday:  Chicken Fajita Bubble Up Bake (substitute the biscuits with low-carb tortilla rolls), Apricots

Thursday: Meatloaf (from my "Family Favorites Cookbook"), Strawberries

Friday: Vegetarian Indian Stew, Cantaloupe (serve the stew over quinoa instead of rice)

Saturday: Fried Chicken, Sliced Tomatoes, Peach Cobbler

Sunday: Chef's Choice (always a lovely surprise)

I took two of this week's dinners from this helpful list of "Thirty Doable Dinners" from the folks at Betty Crocker.  I usually have to modify the recipes to lower the simple carbs involved, but customizing a recipe is part of the fun, yes?  

If you would like more inspiration, you may see other ladies' menu plans at Organizing Junkie's website: http://orgjunkie.com/2017/06/menu-plan-monday-june-517.html

Have a fascinating week!

Agape always,
