5 Weeks of Summer Dinners: A menu plan for August

August meal plan -- 5 weeks of summer meals that are fun and easy for your family

I'm tempted to start calling August "Auggie" now, because of my love for Wonder. Of course, Topanga and Cory's little guy is named Auggie, too, in Girl Meets World (did you know the actor who plays Auggie is named August!?) But I digress. August doesn't just make me think of favorite media, but it makes me think of hot, hot days and lots and lots of barbecue. So there's a definite trend toward BBQ on the menu this month, especially this week. In fact, in addition to getting the ingredients to … [Read more...]

Family Dinners: July Meal Plan Menu

july meal plan - 5 weeks of summer dinners for your family menu

This time of year always stings. I love summer so much, and, in mid-July, I have to admit that it's half over. It's not, not really. Technically, Summer is half over around the first week of August, but it's hard to count the first few weeks of September as Summer, isn't it? So, I need to remind myself to savor the summer. To take advantage of every free-flowing, relaxing moment. Every glass of wine on the deck. Every splash through the sprinkler. Every lazy morning. Every ray of sun that shines … [Read more...]

July Meal Plan

One year ago, this week, I tilted the table and created the first Julieverse Meal Plan Calendar. Forget weekly, this was whole month of meals. I found that offering a month at a time offered readers more opportunity to plan (they didn't have to wait for Monday) and it offers everyone an opportunity to get more ideas to balance your week and month. So, here it is. The beginning of the 2nd annual monthly meal plan calendar! This plan was created to help you plan cooking 5 weeks of summer … [Read more...]

What’s for dinner? Here’s your meal plan for June

june meal plan family dinner recipes week month weekly

Last week, while shopping at Wegmans, I noticed that they now sell frozen salmon burgers, mahi-mahi burgers and several other types of pre-made fish burgers. The cost was less than $8 for four burgers, which is fairly reasonable compared to making it yourself, especially when you're on limited time and want your family to enjoy the healthy benefits of eating fish and seafood. Sadly, for a family of 5, the price is just under $16, which doesn't make it quite as great of a deal. I still may try … [Read more...]

There comes a time, in every Sports-Mom's life, when she looks at her calendar and sees "baseball-softball-baseball-baseball-baseball" stretching across the 6 o-clock hour for an entire week. For me, that week is now. (And I expect it will happen in again in future years.) So while we're snacking on to-go hoagies, pizzas and hot dogs from the ball park, families who aren't at baseball all week can enjoy this week's meal plan, which includes some of my favorites like Minty Bulgur Salad with … [Read more...]
