Meal Plan and Grocery List 7/21-7/26

Hello everyone! I am back from flaming hot (114 degrees!) Las Vegas. Holy cow, I am TIRED. Lots of fun and very little sleep happened on my girl's trip to Las Vegas in honor of my little sister's 30th birthday. Here are a few photos from my trip.

Our hotel, the lovely Monte Carlo.

The Colorado River from Hoover Dam.

My sisters and I after our Dam tour. Ha ha. Get it? Dam tour? That joke got a little old after the 100th time. You can't see the sweat, but it hit 126 degrees on the pavement at the Hoover Dam that day. Yikes!

The ladies (minus 2 from our group) out on the town last night.

I KNOW I would expire in that kind of heat!!These days, with just the 2 of us to cook for, hubby often turns his nose up at what's on the menu (he is strictly a meat and potatoes man). I really miss the days when my kids were home and I could make menu's like yours.
