This week was quintessential summertime around these parts. We kept busy with VBS, swim lessons, and a trip to the Ohio State Fair. This week, we’re getting ready for my son’s fourth (FOURTH?!) birthday party, so things won’t be slowing down just yet.
Quick meals with all the fresh summer produce are still the name of the game around these parts, and we’ve got a bunch for you this week. But what I’m really swooning over is that Watermelon Slushy. Yowza, what a treat for a hot day!
Weekly Family Meal Plan 180
Summer produce is in full swing and with it comes some of the best simple summer meals. This meal plan includes five dinners, a breakfast idea, drink, and two killer desserts.
This Fresh Tomato Soup is a great way to use garden fresh tomatoes and basil. This creamy soup goes great with grilled cheese and is freezer friendly, so you can enjoy this summer favorite all year round!
Easy Beef Burrito Skillet is a homemade one pan meal the whole family will love! You can serve it as a “naked” burrito and eat it straight from the skillet, or you can add the filling to tortilla shells to make more traditional beef burritos, make burrito bowls, and even turn it into a burrito salad
Is there anything better than sipping on Slushy Watermelon Mint Lemonade on hot summer days? Watermelon shares the perfect amount of sweetness with lemonade, mint gives it amazing flavor, and ice makes it slushy! It’s a summer drink combo you’re likely to make a habit out of! It’s also a really great way to use up leftover watermelon!
