Menu Plan Monday: July 6th

Am I the only freaking out because it is already JULY? There is still so much to do on our summer bucket list. And it won't get done if I spend the whole time in the kitchen!  Here is what is cooking this week.  Easy meals that won't take up all my time.

Clam Chowder.  Never got to it last week.  I plan on making the bread bowls around lunch time so they are done ahead of time.

Sriracha Teriyaki Meatballs over brown rice.  Asparagus on the side. Yup!  Didn't get to that either. Now Im wondering what exactly we did eat last week...

Leftover night. 

Grilled Chili Lime Chicken with salad and corn on the cob. 

I'm not the only one who likes to light up the grill mid week right?  I hope not!  I would grill every meal if I knew the boys would never get tired of it.

Menu Plan Monday: June 29th

After an amazing but exhausting weekend, I am looking forward to spending some time in my kitchen.  Cleaning it mostly, but cooking too.  So here is another quick and easy menu.

Monday:  One Pan Salmon & Veggies.  I love this meal for nights when I am running behind and need to get something in the over quickly.  And it helps that we usually always have everything we need for this meal because I didn't make it last week.

Tuesday:  Tacos of course.  Nothing special this week.  Just simple ground beef tacos.  I have used the flavor packets before but because of the salt in them, I started just adding a little cumin and adobo seasoning to the meat and that works for us.  Tacos also work as a great red meat option because I put more veggies than meat in mine.  Red meat and my liver are not friends, but turkey tacos just aren't the same!

Wednesday:  Sriracha Teriyaki Meatballs.  This is a recipe I have been wanting to try.  No better time like today right.  Well Wednesday anyways.  Served over brown rice and maybe with some broccoli.  Can't wait to try it.

Thursday:  Leftovers or Chicken Tetrazinni with salads.  This is one of my fall back recipes. Something I have everything to make usually on hand at all times.

Friday: Clam Chowder and homemade bread bowls.  I'm still searching for the bread bowl recipe so if anyone has a good one, let me know!

So there you have it.  Like always, easy and fairly quick meals.  Have an amazing week y'all!

Review: Collapsible Travel Pet Bowls #petbowls

Disclosure:  I was given these for free in exchange for an honest review.  All opinions are 100% my own.

There are only a few things this family agrees on.  Two of those things being dogs and outdoor fun.  So I was very excited to try out these Collapsible Pet Bowls.

Collapsible Travel Pet Bowls

As soon as I opened them I knew I was going to love them.  I am surrounded by boys and the Camouflage print was a big hit.  They are canvas on the outside with a nylon liner.  That makes it great even for water and very easy to clean out.  It is sewn well too, so I don't have to worry about it coming apart on me after a few good uses. And with boys and giant dogs, everything is kinda put through the ringer in this house!

Collapsible Pet Bowl 1

My first question was how much can it hold.  I have Great Danes so a tiny little bowl just won't work for us. Well, I do have a Chihuahua, but he thinks hes a Dane.  Because they are collapsible and fold up so small I was a little skeptical.  We feed 3 cups of food at each meal.  And it fit!  With room to spare!

Notice the loop on the side and the clip we added?  Instant treat bag.  A week before school was out, my oldest had to make a video of him doing something he liked to do.  He added a clip to the bag and asked if he could use it at a training pouch.  And when its not in use, it is clipped on to the side of the kennel so we always know where it is at.

Right now there is a special 2 for 1 offer.  I took the second one and immediately put it in the car. Next to the leash, bottle of water and small bag of dog food that is always in the trunk.  We are always coming across stray and loose dogs.  So to have something that is small enough to tuck away but can hold more than 3 cups will be perfect for those situations.

These bowls will be a great addition to any pet lovers gear.  What, You don't have a box full of gear for your dogs too?  I'm really looking forward to many walks, hikes and adventures with these bowl.
