Hope you are all hanging in there as the school year wraps up (though I know many of you still have a few weeks left). Onto the matter of dinner! Below is the line up for the week with a printable shopping list at the bottom of the page. If the kids are going to be home all summer, now is a good time to start collecting fun ideas to get them cooking.

FISH SLIDERS WITH CREAMY CAPER DRESSING

This is what I call speed-scratch cooking. These little sliders rely on store-bought breaded fish fillets that get dressed up with a yogurt caper dressing and a pile of shredded cabbage. The result is pretty darn delicious. Keep it simple and serve with a plate of crunchy crudite and/or little roasted potatoes (425 degree oven, olive oil, salt, pepper…you get the idea).

PROSCIUTTO ARUGULA LAVASH PIZZA

One of the easiest (and first) recipes on the blog and it still remains a personal favorite that I make whenever I have a pizza craving. Any salad or vegetable side will do here.

EASY CHICKEN PAILLARD

easy chicken paillard

Have dinner on the table in a snap. This no-fuss meal looks sort of fancy, but is a lot lighter than its more traditional twin. Add roasted veggies, a simple grain dish, or a tossed salad to fill out your plate. IF you have any leftovers, lunch the next day will be equally delicious.

HEALTHY HOMEMADE TRAIL MIX

Take a trip through the bulk bins as your local market and choose your favorite nuts, dried fruits, seeds, cereals, and yes, chocolate if you like. Then bring your haul home and make up your own trail mix just the way you like it. 

YOGURT SUNDAE WITH MELTED RASPBERRIES

This sundae can serve as breakfast, snack, or dessert. It relies on frozen raspberries, which get really juicy when defrosted, making a tangy sauce to pour over yogurt. Make several portions at once in single-serve jars and store in the fridge grab-and-go meals.
