July is here and with it lots of summer sun, fun, and yummy foods. I’m excited for a week that has not a lot of plans on the table and lots of time to spend with the kids this week. What’s on your menu and calendar for this week?
Ready to start meal planning, but don’t know where to start?
Waffles and bacon for brinner dinner!
Tuesday: Pistachio-crusted Salmon
We have loved adding fish back to the menu regularly. This recipe from Nom Nom Paleo is delicious. A combination of a few of our favorite things into one easy to make dish? Sign me up!
Wednesday: Stir Fry Night
Stir fry night is my favorite! We get to choose what goes in our custom-made stir fry, and I always choose ALL the veggies. Snow peas, broccoli, carrots, onions, and more. The must-have? A sprinkling of ginger and garlic. YUM.
Thursday: Taco Night
We haven’t had taco night in awhile, so I’m excited to have taco Tuesday. I’ll serve up my easy guacamole and tons of veggies to top our tacos.
Pizzas are so much fun to make at home. We’ve been trying out different gluten-free doughs and the jury is still out, but you can always try our Whalen Family pizza dough recipe if you’re not gluten-free and want to experiment. The base of it is pretty simple no matter what type of flour you use.
Saturday: Clean out the fridge night
We’ll work on cleaning out the fridge of all the leftovers and foods that need to be eaten up before they go bad. It’s a great way to reduce waste. Read about how we reduce food waste at home here.
Sunday: Slow-cooked chicken
Roasted chicken is fine, but making this slow cooker tangy honey chicken is easy and takes no time to set up in the slow cooker. A side of gluten-free, dairy-free cornbread and a big green salad with apples and walnuts will make this a perfect meal.
