What to Cook for Dinner?
I’m trying to stick to my plan for one dinner salad a week this month and one breakfast dinner too. Eating breakfast for dinner makes for an easy and an inexpensive meal too.
This week we are having pancakes for dinner. We love this recipe and it’s quick and easy to make too.
For the salad this week, we’ll be having BLT salad for dinner. It’s a hearty dinner salad. And since we have lots of lettuce from the garden I don’t have to use lettuce from the store. We also have a few tomatoes ripening in the garden. We’ll have fresh tomatoes too.
The only expensive item in this salad is the bacon. Bacon prices have shot up around here. Regular prices have been around $5-6 a pound, that’s expensive. But I’ve been finding bacon on sale for around $3 a pound so my freezer is stocked up for a bit.
If it’s hot where you live and you need some ideas for oven free meals, check out this list with more than 80 oven free recipes. I’m sure you’ll find something your family will like.
We love pizza at our house but it’s too hot to bake pizza so instead I make pizza pockets. This week we are having the skillet pizza pockets again.
My family loves them and I love how easy they are to make and I don’t have to use the oven. We often make grilled pizza in the summer and it’s great too.
