Menu Plan Monday 8/8/11

Here's to I think I can, I think I can, I think I can.....I can 
{waaaaaaaaa, just not sure I wan't to}
I wrote a poor me post last week, outlining my inability to effectively stick to a menu plan, but even as I write this one ......I'm just not too hopeful.  The craziness of my work schedule has definitely affected our family life and dinner time.
When it is cool outside, dinnertime seems to be a lot easier, because we're more in the mood for oven baked or crock pot cooked stuff!  Unfortunately, that time of year is a few months away.   Right now grilled or stove top is where its at.
Hope your week is blessed!
