Week 118 Menu

This is my new favorite yogurt – European style from Trader Joe’s.  I like it better than the Greek style, even.  It’s not as thick as Greek, but it’s smoother.  Absolutely PERFECT for frozen yogurt. I may be facing addiction once again.

Okay, menu time!

– Meatball subs
– Salad

– Chicken Masala (TJ’s simmer sauce)
– Naan Bread (from TJ’s frozen section)
– Salad

– English Muffin Pizzas
– Salad

– Breakfast for dinner or leftovers

– Eat out

– Hamburgers on the grill
– Fresh Fruit
– Sweet potato fries (discovered these last week in the TJs frozen section…so good!)

– Soup of some kind
– Crusty bread

Bring on the menus! I browse your menus EVERY WEEK when I’m planning things out. I’m grateful so many of you share each week – thank you!

Be sure to enter this week’s ProFlowers giveaway, if you haven’t already.  It’s a good one!
