The kids may be back in school (HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE?), but that doesn’t mean I’m ready to let go of all my favorite summer meals. The best summer produce will still be flooding farmer’s markets for the next few weeks, and this week’s meal plan makes the most of it!
From quick grilled meals to salads, wraps, and an Instant Pot favorite these simple recipes should help ease the transition back into the school routine. Enjoy!
