It’s Monday and time to plan our meal plan for the week. If you haven’t made your meal plan yet. I’ve got a few oven free dinner ideas below and more.

Menu plan with recipe links

This week I have another oven free menu plan. I don’t like to heat up the house this time of year.

I keep my baking in the oven to a minimum to keep our air conditioning bill a little lower.

Last week it cooled down a bit but it is going to be in the 90’s the beginning of this week. So it will be oven-free meals again.

This week most of our meals will be prepared on the stovetop or the grill. I think I’m even going to give making fajitas on the grill a try.

I’ll also be making pizza on the grill again. We love how nice and crisp the crust turns out when we grill it. If you’ve never tried making pizza on the grill check out this tutorial.

  1. Happy Menu Plan Monday! I’m just stopping by from Organizing Junkie’s blog.
    I hope it’s not too hot and muggy in your area. We’ve been experiencing humidity in Vegas. Not too fun with our hot temps.

    I love your food photos. They have me wanting to reach for my fork and knife. Especially the pancakes. I can eat them anytime of the day.

    1. French toast is my husband’s favorite. I don’t make it as often as I probably should. That’s another one of those foods along with tomatoes that I really don’t care for. I know I’m weird. 🙂
