Menu for Week Starting 6/13/2016


This week we really start trying to work with our “summer rates” menu planning. This week we will be doing several slow cooker meals and grilling so that we don’t heat the house during peak electric rates. I hope we can keep it up. Hopefully we will get some help with our Theme Week submissions 🙂

  1. These are some great recipe ideas, and it’s so nice that you’ve put together the menu as well as the shopping list for us. Thanks for sharing ideas that are easy for putting together in the heat, too – without heating up the house.
