August Dinner Menu {2013}

This is our last month on summer break and then it's back to school and a regular schedule. We've been lazy around here when it comes to bedtime, dinner time and just doing what we want. That's what summer is all about, but it will be nice to get back to a routine again.

As summer winds down, August will most likely be the hottest month here in North Texas. My challenge will be trying to keep the house cool as much as possible, so preparing meals without heating up the kitchen is the plan.

My August Dinner Menu will consist of a few skillet meals, dinner salads, crock pot meals and grilling to help with the heat.
Hopefully you will find something you like.

What is the recipe in the top picture collage on the left side of the plate shown? I was guessing it possibly might have been the CC Wingers Sticky Fingers but that recipe says not found on the blog. I'd love to know what that dish is.

Thank you.

Also, your website is not working well with IE browsers any long for some reason. :(

Vicki I am sorry I am on my phone so I cannot correct the link. Just do a search on the right sidebar under search recipes for wingers sticky fingers.

Hi. My first time here, wonderful menu plans but I'm wondering how you come up with a grocery list from all the recipes or am I missing a shopping list of yours somewhere?
Tina Butler said…
I don't post shopping lists to the menu's. That would be something you would need to put together. I make my shopping list by going through my menu and looking at everything I need to make each meal. I first check through my pantry to see if I have what I need. If not it goes on the list.

Thank you Tina for your menu plans. Summer has been busy so I haven't been planning meals - obviously this is Aug 20th & I am just getting August's menu!! I appreciate your blog and your recipes (your Pot Roast recipe is the BEST and I will never make it anyway but your way again!!). Thanks for helping me get back in the swing of cooking again. You are a true blessing!
