Dinnertime can be a little bit crazy in the summer, agreed? I feel like we are all going in a hundred directions and are often not all home at the same time to eat. So, it’s kind of hit and miss and I don’t end up cooking every night. Cold cereal for dinner was consumed one night this past week for dinner. This is the cold, hard truth. And you know what. It’s totally ok with me. 🙂 Sometimes I need a break, anyhow. Might as well take it when it’s super hot outside and the oven needs to stay quiet and still.

Now, for the record, I am still planning to post these Weekly Menu Plan throughout the summer months. As a guide for me (and hopefully you!) to use throughout these hot months to pick and choose recipes from. I appreciate all the great feedback you have given me regarding these plans. I am hoping you will still enjoy them this summer!

And please feel free to eat cold cereal for dinner (with zero guilt!), when the opportunity arrises. I know I will be.

  1. I love your weekly meal plans, even in the summer. Many of your recipes are in my menu plan rotation…thanks for all great recipes, book reviews and uplifting posts…all awhile keeping it real!

  2. Skillet Chicken Enchiladas are on my menu this week, too! That’s become one of our favorite meals. We love the green beans and mushrooms recipe, too. I’m adding Sweet Chili Grilled Chicken to next week’s menu. Thanks for sharing these great meal ideas.
