17 Quick Summer Dinner Ideas
I made you this list of the dishes we’re having for dinner in July to give you ideas about what to make yourself.
“What’s for dinner?” is probably the question I find the most annoying.
That’s because I’m far from the world’s most graceful wife and mother.
Sometimes when I hear the dinner question, I want to scream ‘Have you animals never seen a stove before?”
But I don’t.
Anyway, the dinner question is a little easier if I come up with a plan or even a rough sketch of what to cook in any given month.
There are 31 days in July and 17 ideas here. That’s because we’ll have leftovers every so often or go out.
Keep in mind, the best menu plan is one your people will eat.
We all really love fish and seafood so we eat that at least once a week.
So, if that’s not you, replace the fish maybe with vegetarian dishes? Bagels? Lamb?
