The Monday Menu 7/2/2012

Black Bean and Butternut Squash Quesadilla

This was kind of a strange week for me to plan.  We’re very busy with extra activities and its supposed to be unbelievably hot still, so I don’t want to turn the oven on.

Today is my dad’s birthday (happy birthday Dad!) so we might try get together for dinner and I’m not sure what that looks like yet. We’re attending a 4th of July picnic on Wednesday so I don’t have to do any cooking that night.  Saturday is Lola’s 3rd (!) birthday. We have a family reunion to attend that day so we’ll be having a party Friday night. She has requested a Fantastic Mr. Fox themed party as well as hot dogs (blech). I’ll be sure to share that adventure with you. Here’s what else I have planned:

Monday – Going to my parent’s house for my dad’s birthday
Tuesday – Skillet Lasagna with packaged salad
Wednesday – 4th of July picnic, bringing Taco Dip
Thursday – Quesadillas with salsa and avocado slices
Friday – Lola’s birthday party; Hamburgers and Hot Dogs, Mac and Cheese, Apples, Cake, and Cookies

What are you making this week?
