Weekly menu planning: June 14th-21st

This week is much different than any other week. Come to think about it as previously mentioned this month is pulling us in all different directions. Funny how life has it's way with you right when you think you have a hand on it. *sigh*

Today we discovered a gas leak that was more of a plumbing issue. Go figure! We had to tap into our account thus making the menu planning that much more important for us to break even. *sigh*

With Father's day ending this week and another celebration, kick starting next, we continue onward with diligence.
