Menu Plan July 1-15

Happy July! How are we already at the start of a new month? I was talking to Jesse the other night about menu planning. I really don't enjoy sitting down to do it, but I do know how much time and money it saves throughout the two weeks afterwards. It's just the process that I don't really enjoy. Anyone have any ideas how to make it more fun?
We went strawberry picking on Tuesday, so those will make an appearance on the menu (and in lots of snacking!).
