I’m linking up today for Girl Chat’s theme this month of summer meals! I’m hoping to get some new ideas because this is the time in the season when I’m getting bored with my meals!
I’m definitely a seasonal cook and like to change up my meals with the seasons. I also like a good theme to guide my weekly meal plan. I usually do pasta one night and Mexican one night.
These babies below have really been on rotation for me this summer. The pesto sauce pairs well with whatever pasta you have on hand and some grilled chicken or shrimp and the mojito lime marinade is great on chicken with your Mexican side dishes. You should be able to find them in your grocery wherever the mixes are – like the mix for making chili. I have talked about these before on the blog but wanted you to know they are still very much in my rotation!
Some other easy summer meals that I make are:
fish (usually frozen that I defrost and sprinkle cajun seasoning on then bake), green vegetable, potatoes of some form
bbq, baked beans, macaroni and cheese
BLTs, salad, fries from the freezer
quesadillas, rice, corn
tacos, rice, corn
spaghetti, ceasar salad, bread
sheet pan suppers – turkey sausage and whatever veggies cut up
Ham (thick kind), green beans, ready made mashed potatoes
Soup and grilled cheese
Sloppy Joe’s, tater tots, broccoli
Tip* Type out a list of the suppers you make and just rotate those meals. I have a list that I created last year that has really helped me when I’m trying to do my meal plans. Add to it when you find a new recipe.
What are your go to meals right now?
