July’s Monthly Menu (2015 Version)

So I know July has already begun, but the month wouldn't be complete without a new monthly menu for July!  This month, I've included a spontaneous meal (because I know we will be out and about but don't know where we'll be for dinner) as well as a "Make It Up As You Go" dinner, where I'll check out what I have around the house and make something from it.  If some of the recipes from this month's menu sound like something you'd like to try, just let me know and I'll send you the link.  Enjoy!

A few weeks ago, we took the plunge to start up our summer garden again. We booked a lawn care specialist from to come and take a look at what could be done to get the grass looking a little happier. Prince Charming built another planter box for us, and we took an entire morning to loosen the ground, spread soil, and plant our seeds. You can see how badly the garden looked before and after in the gallery shown below. It definitely looks so much better! This year, we planted sweet corn, carrots, watermelon, cucumber, zucchini, sunflowers, geraniums,…
