Tuna Casserole Recipe

I have a new recipe for you today! I first found this recipe in one of my favorite cookbooks years ago and have changed it over the years to adapt it to the way our family likes it. Tuna Casserole is one of those go-to recipes of mine when the budget is getting low. Tuna and pasta are very inexpensive! This recipe is so easy and if you love cheese, you really should give it a try!

June Monthly Dinner Menu Plan

 

It’s hard to believe it’s summer already! Last night I worked on our dinner menu plan for the month of June and I thought I’d share it with you. I talked a little about menu planning in my Dollars & Sense post on Saving Money at the Grocery Store if you want to check it out HERE. You can also check out my post about How I Do Menu Planning HERE.

So here is my dinner menu plan for our family for the month of June:

Keep in mind we’re very flexible and our plans change a lot! Also, you will see that I do plan for leftovers as well as on days when I know we’re going to be busy (like weekends) I do plan for frozen dinner type of meals. I know that some people prefer to have everything fresh, but this works best for our family right now and planning ahead at least helps us not to spend more on fast food! Also please note that I have linked any recipes that I’m using that are on the blog so all you have to do is click on them and you can see my recipe.

Crockpot Shepherd’s Pie Recipe

Hi everyone! I have an easy new recipe for you today, Crockpot Shepherd’s Pie. I found this recipe in a cookbook and have changed it over the years to how we like it. This is a great one to make for a busy day and just stick it in the crockpot and then it’s ready for you at dinner!

I usually make some mashed potatoes to go with it and honestly a lot of times those are just the boxed ones that you add hot water to! Those boxed mashed potatoes have saved me a lot of time over the years. I do try to make fresh whenever I can, but there are just those days when you don’t have the time. I love to serve this over mashed potatoes and sprinkled with cheese.

S’mores on a Stick Recipe

This past weekend, we were so excited to get snow! Living in South Carolina, we don’t get much snow and so this was a huge deal! The kids were up and headed outside by 8am and by about 9am we had 4 snowmen in our front yard! After they came inside, Popstar decided it was time for a treat. So I figured a snow day was the perfect time to try a new recipe. She loves to cook and her grandmother had gotten her this cookbook for Christmas:

 

So I told her to look through her cookbook and find something that we had all the ingredients for to make. She came up with S’mores on a Stick. They turned out to be so delicious, I was just wishing that we’d had some hot chocolate to go with them!
