Hello! I hope you all had a lovely Fourth of July. Thanks to some rare impulsive behavior, my parents are in town for the long weekend, so I’m spending time going to shows and museums instead of baking. Love a staycation!
Following yesterday’s festivities, I figure you might be set on dessert for a few days, but you still have to eat, right?! If you’re anything like me, you’d prefer to do so in a timely fashion, without heating up your kitchen too much, and with guaranteed delicious results! Summer is too short for boring food, y’all.
Here are some of my favorite summery weeknight meals from the archives!￼Steak Fajitas
Tex-Mex is my comfort food of choice and, this time of year, nothing sounds more comforting to me than medium-rare steak fajitas wrapped up in flour tortillas and topped with plenty of salsa and guacamole.Buffalo Chicken Biscuits
These biscuit sandwiches are perfect for game day, but since weeknight baking is rarely convenient, the quick & easy buffalo chicken filling and homemade blue cheese dressing work equally well on hamburger buns.Shrimp, Corn & Zucchini Sauté
This is easily my favorite summer meal. What’s not to love about a simple meal of corn, summer vegetables and shrimp?! In addition to slapping this together on weeknights, I find that this makes a great dinner party main. Just add a crusty baguette. And maybe a Raspberry Rhubarb Crisp.15 Minute Stovetop Mac & Cheese
I’ve been making this recipe for more than a decade and I’m still in love with it. Quick, easy and, since it doesn’t involve an oven, ideal for a summer mac & cheese craving.Olive Oil Marinated Broccoli
Every meal needs to be rounded out with a vegetable, and Olive Oil Marinated Broccoli is one that everyone loves. This easy recipe has only five ingredients, can be served cold or room temp, and gets more and more delicious as time goes on! I highly recommend making extra—you’re going to be excited to eat your vegetables.
