keeping our cool- Menu for June 22nd - June 28th

We're in the midst of a little heat wave around here... upper ninety degree temps with the heat index up over 110. Yuck.

We've been spending most of the day at the pool, every day, and that's pretty much my plan for the week. Which means two things: When I finally drag the kids out of the water at the end of the day, I want to come home and have minimum prep for dinner... without turning on the stove or the oven.

A week of meals without (or minimal) cooking? Here's some of what I've come up with:

Monday: Cold Ham Sandwich Pizza with corn on the cob
Tuesday: Pepperoni Pasta Salad with bread and nice big green grapes
Wednesday: Sausage, cheese and cracker platter with fruits and veggies
Thursday: No-Cook Tomato Sauce and pasta with broccoli steamed in the microwave
Friday: pizza party with the neighbors at the pool
Saturday: Ginger Steak Salad
Sunday: Pulled Pork Sandwiches
