Menu Monday + Summertime Sides {6.8.20}

Now that we’re basically in summertime, I try to keep supper meals easy and light. I make a main dish, whether it’s all meat (steaks) or some kind of one-pan meal (enchiladas, meatball subs) and then use whatever fresh produce I have on hand to go with it.

That might be peaches, watermelon, cucumbers, zucchini or tomatoes – I just slice them up and serve them. Sometimes they need Ranch or a light vinaigrette dressing, but often I serve them all by themselves. It’s easy and keeps the kitchen from getting any hotter than it already is!

For last week’s menu that you see below, I can’t actually remember what sides I served with each meal. I write the main dishes in my menu plan and decide on my sides each day, based on what I have. Just know it was something fresh and delicious! 🙂

On The Menu


  • Sunshine Smoothies
  • Fancy Avocado Toast: Toast/Avocado/Tomato Slices/Over Easy Egg/EBTB Seasoning




Happy Meal Planning!
