It seems like a long time since I've been here! It's so nice to be back and getting back into my routine again.
We are definitely into summer now. The forecast is for the 90's all week, and it is a dry heat here. I can't believe I am actually saying we need rain, after all the rain we had this spring! But it is pretty dry out there right now.
In the summer, I like to keep my house, including the kitchen, cool. That means minimal baking for me. I try to keep meals simple, and desserts cold. I use the grill a lot, and I love stovetop cooking for the summer months.
This week, I have an easy menu plan that features very little oven time. When I do bake in the summer, I usually get it done early in the morning. There are a couple new recipes for me to try here, especially the shrimp boil. I have been wanting to try one, so this week I will give it go!
Here is the menu plan for this week:
