Menu Plan Monday Week 42

It's Monday again, which means it's time for another Menu Plan Monday post, thanks to Laura at I'm an Organizing Junkie. I have a hunch that the weekend this week is going to be a little bit hectic; not only am I going to attend Dewey's Readathon, but there is a big farmers market I want to visit as well. Hopefully I will manage to do both.
