August 2011 Menu Plan

Well it's August, known around here as the hottest month of the year. It's been pretty hot in July, so I hoping August will give us a break this year. I apologize for the lack of menu plans over the past couple of months. With the arrival of our baby girl in June, I knew I wouldn't be cooking as much in June and July so I just didn't do a menu.  But, we are back to cooking so here is my plan for this month. I've found some yummy things lately and I can't wait to cook them and try them out. I"ve got a couple of crock pot recipes this month to help with busy days and the heat. I'm also being very optimistic in my "extra things" part, because there are lots of things I want to try, plus more I"m sure I"ll want to make as the month progresses.
