August Dinner Menu {MenuPlan Monthly}

Good Morning everyone! It's that time again another month and new dinner menu. Summer is almost behind us and School starts in about three weeks. It's bittersweet for me, because I love having my kiddos home for summer.

All the lazy days, fun activities along with not having a set schedule. It's so fun planning spur of the moment activities and trips. Well all of that will soon come to end and summer will be over.

I can say I'm looking forward to Fall and leaving the hot weather behind us. It's still warm in Texas until about October, but were slowly getting there. We have been using our grill and crock pot non stop over the summer.

Over the next couple months as the weather changes I'm looking forward to more soups, stews and casseroles. So without further delay here is my August Dinner Menu.

As usual, red titles are previously posted or linked recipes. Titles with (New) are recipes I'm hoping to make and post in the future

Thank y'all for stopping by and commenting. Sometimes I wonder if anyone is actually interested in the whole monthly menu posts. I have been trying to decided if it was something I needed to continue or not on MK. It doesn't usually get any comments, so I wasn't sure if it was even getting viewed.

I just found & bookmarked your blog a few days ago! I'm really enjoying it so far & have been drooling over the pics! I find the monthly menus helpful since I can be so indecisive. Thanks for all your ideas & recipes! I'll keep coming back for more :-)

Hi, I'm dropping in from Kitchen Grapevine and I post menus each week. I was looking for some inspiration for my August Menu and I think I'd like to try the Cracker Barrel Chicken. It sounds scrumptious!

Tina - I saw your comment above about not being sure if people even read this portion, and let me tell you, your monthly menus are a lifesaver around here! My husband and I are both full time students as well as parents to our 6 year old autistic son, our 3 year daughter, and the new baby (who is slightly less new at a energetic 7 months old). I found this website right after the baby was born and have been grateful for it ever since. I've even started getting nervous when you don't post the monthly menu by the second or third! So, thank you so much for this. You have no idea how much it has helped our family.

I literally just found your site and OMG I am soooo thrilled! You've made my crazy life, organized again! The Monthly Menu is PERFECT for myself and my family that's always on the go! One suggestion... and personally it's just selfish on my behalf... add a weekly shopping list for those of us who are going to literally do the menu EXACTLY as you have it! Keep up the awesome idea's and recipes! And to think... all I was looking for was Tater Tot Casserole recipe, and I managed to simplify my life... THANKS TO YOU! ;D

I don't plan on doing away with the menu plans. There just wont be a September menu due to some deadlines and family visiting. I made not on the menu tabs on the top of my page. I will be back with a new October Menu, so be on the look out.

Tina, you are a blessing! Please know that you and your work, ministry, ideas are so greatly appreciated! When planning meals I'll ask my kids to bring my ipad to the kitchen, they say "I know, mommy's kitchen right". Your blog is an app that I use daily. THANK YOU!!!!
