Easy Summer Menu Plan

We are just into our summer and for this week’s menu plan I’m sticking to easy to make dinners. Most of them are oven free so you won’t have to turn on the oven to make them. Which is so nice in the summer to help keep the house cool.

When it’s warm out I love to use my slow cooker to cook dinner. All I need to do is set it up in the morning and there’s nothing more to think about until dinner is done. That is easy cooking.

I’ll also be grilling a couple time this week. Dinner straight off the barbecue is so good. We grill all year long but in the summer we definitely grill more often.

My family loves the easy sesame chicken recipe and having breakfast for dinner so that rounded out the rest of our meals for this week.

What’s cooking at your house this week?

Here’s what’s on our Menu Plan this week,

Easy Dinner Recipe for Slow Cooker Hamburger Dish


Easy Slow Cooker Hamburger Dish, Salad, and Raspberries from our Garden

Grill Pork Chops, Mashed Potatoes, and Salad

Easy Sesame Chicken, Rice, and Stir Fry Vegetables


Leftover Most Days

I don’t think you can ever have too many breakfast recipes. This chocolate chip scone recipe is one of our favorites. These chocolate chip sones have no heavy cream, in fact they are dairy free scones. Another plus is you can make them in the skillet, so you don’t have to heat up the house on warmer days to bake them.

Toast and Eggs

Pancakes, Eggs, and Sausage

Chocolate Chip Scones, Eggs, and Sausage

  1. Your menu looks so yummy! I need to try that Easy Sesame Chicken someday soon 🙂

    I put lasagna on our menu this week, since my husband loves it so much, but having the oven on really made the kitchen so uncomfortably hot. I need to go completely oven-free next week, since it’s obviously too hot for using the oven now.

    Hope you have a great week!
