When thinking about my weekly meal plan during the summer, I always check the forecast first. Any weather above 85 means no cooking in the oven or on the stove. I don't want to create more heat in an already warm environment...no need for our standing air conditioners to work harder than they already are (yup...no central air here). And this week, it looks like another heat wave of 4 or 5 days above 90. So crockpot and grill it is!
Below you will find my plans, with any links to recipes that serve as inspiration. As always, I will try to post the new recipes as the week goes on and I will continue to post those I haven't had a chance to post yet from the last month.
Enjoy your week and happy cooking!
