Are you ready for the first week in July. I know my family is looking forward to celebrating the 4th of July with fireworks and a barbecue.

If you’re still unsure of what you’ll be eating this week, find a few meal plan ideas below I’m sure your family will love.

Summer always seems to begin right after the 4th of July. It seems most years we have mild summer weather with rain off and on until the 4th and then summer weather really begins.

My plan for this week is a yummy barbecued meal for the holiday. The rest of the week we’ll be eating easy skillet meals.

For the BLT salad, I’ll usually cook the bacon in the oven, but when it’s hot out who wants to run the oven? It just makes the house that much hotter.

Instead I’ll use my electric skillet to bake the bacon without an oven. It works better than a regular skillet because I can control the temperature better and the bacon cooks more evenly without the bacon splatter everywhere.

We’ll also be getting our first order from Imperfect Produce. I heard about them a while ago and when I looked to see if they delivered in my area, I was pleased to see they do.

If you’ve already heard of them and want to give them a try, you can use my referral link and save $10 off your first order.

I’ll let you know how we like the service after we’ve tried it out a few times. And I’ll share how the prices compare too.

Now Here’s our Full Meal Plan for this Week…


This is a simple and easy creamy chicken mushroom recipe. It’s a one pot dish that is great for the summer because you cook it in the skillet. It’s equally delicious served over pasta or rice and it can be made dairy free too.
