32 Nights of dinner.....

Last night I was feeling pretty optimistic.... So much so that I did something I have never done before... plan an entire months of meals for my family, with no repeats. I did it with the exception of having a leftover night each week. I was feeling so good about it that I posted about it on Facebook and 6 emails letter I was tired of sending so I decided to post it the blog!

All the recipes I have made before and like, they are also easy and tasty. So If you need help or a recipe let me know. I have a lot of them on my computer all ready so don't feel like you are putting me out. I make cookbooks as wedding presents so I have a collection on my computer and don't mind adding to it.

Not all of the recipes are my own creation, I did not invent tacos or the flag fruit pizza(inside joke). This is really what we are having for dinner in July, and maybe in that order, and I just wanted to give you ideas, I do not expect your children to eat Pork Curry.... =) but they should its really good. Also I try to plan as many gluten free meals as possible by using 3 that help me a ton. I buy can tomato and cream of chicken soup at Sunflower Market/Trader Joe's and I buy Farm Rich Meatballs from Walmart. they are not that crazy of food items and they taste fine. So here it the list and I am already thinking about meals for August.

Leftovers/Pot Luck
