It's too hot to cook indoors! Chicken drumsticks on the grill and cold potato salad. A crisp green salad will make sure we get some veggies in.
Eat out with the Graduate! The promotion ceremony is at 7:30, so it'll be a late dinner (our usual dinner time is 7). Feed the kids a hearty snack at 5:30 to tide them over.
Let's start summer vacation right with salmon, vegetables, and brown rice! My kids will always eat broccoli, so we'll include that. Do your kids have a vegetable that they surprisingly like?
Spaghetti and Meatballs with garlic knots. Ice-box rolls are a great way to easily have fresh bread throughout the week. You make the dough the night before, and have enough for 3 nights of rolls, twists, or pull aparts.
Bust out the grill for the weekend! Kielbasa skewers and grilled vegetables. I will bake off more ice-box rolls for build it yourself kielbasa sliders.
Heading to the Farmer's Market first thing in the morning. My mom suggested grilled fish tacos, which would definitely fit in with my grilling theme! Fresh salsas are a great alternative to mayonnaise-based sauces commonly found with fish tacos.
Father's Day means more grilling, this time some of my husband's favorites. Steaks and corn on the cob on the grill, plus seasonal sides like this panzanella salad, from The Complete Savorist.
I'd love to hear what you are cooking for your family this week! What meal you are looking forward to most this week?
