It’s officially summer and I’ve got a menu to match. I’ve got plenty of quick and easy options this week and have worked in plenty of seasonal produce.  As always, find the printable shopping list down at the bottom. And see what’s cooking in my kitchen these days by following me on Instagram.

LAZY GIRL’S ENCHILADA PIE

Called “lazy” because you layer all of the ingredients instead of rolling up each individual enchilada. The result is no less tasty. Any Mexican sides are fair game: sour cream, guacamole, pinto beans, extra salsa.  A salad on the side adds nice crunch! 


SLOW COOKER PULLED PORK SANDWICHES WITH APPLE CABBAGE SLAW

This is the perfect use for the slow cooker come summertime. The tenderloin, which is a mega lean cut of meat, cooks down into tender, pull-apart pork that’s excellent on a soft bun with a pile of crunchy slaw. Assemble a big plate of crudite and add Green Goddess or Ranch for a tasty dip. 

SUMMER ROLLS WITH PEANUT DIPPING SAUCE 

This is a fresh, bright answer to supper when a heat wave hits. I like to set it up as a DIY summer roll bar, and let everyone make their own. Minimize your hands-on time at dinner time by prepping your peanut sauce and veggies a day ahead. 


OVERNIGHT  BANANA ALMOND BUTTER OATS

A simple, make-ahead breakfast that you do up in a jar or bowl and stow in the fridge until morning. Feel free to stir a teaspoon or two of healthy “add ins” to the mix, such as hemp seeds, chia seeds, or ground flax. Serve it straight up or top with fruit, such as fresh mango or favorite berries. 


CREAMY STRAWBERRY MILK

Strawberries are here and this is one more way to make the most of them when they are so sweet and fresh. A just-sweet-enough milk that is miles better and better for you than what you’ll get on the supermarket shelf. Serve it for an afternoon snack or add it to your morning meal.
