Summer Break! Drop Menus Here!

Hello foodie friends! I am crying “Uncle!” and going to take a summer break from meal planning (since I basically am already). We aren’t eating out a ton or anything, but we are taking a very relaxed approach to dinner each night. I haven’t ever officially taken a summer blog break from planning my weekly menu…it feels weird but also a bit refreshing. I think by the time school gets started, the break will have me ready to get planning weekly again. 

Until then, please feel free to drop your menus on this post all summer long. It can be our summer resource weekly menu spot.

Happy summer! Happy eating fresh produce!
