Oven Free Menu Plan

For the past few weeks, we’ve been having really warm weather. I planned this oven free menu plan in advance assuming that the warm weather was going to continue. After all, who wants to run an oven on an 80+ degree day.

After I planned this menu the weather turned cooler and rainy. Isn’t that always the way it happens. I’m not going to complain at all we had quite a little stretch with no rain and I’m actually happy to see the weather getting back to a more normal pattern for this time of year. I really like the rain.

While I could have adjusted my menu plan to include a few oven made meals, I decided to leave it alone and share it this week. Some of you might just need an oven free menu plan because the weather has turned warm where you live.

If you need a few oven free meal be sure to print the linked recipes. I make many of them often during the hot weather months.

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


Looking for a new way to enjoy teriyaki chicken? This grilled pineapple teriyaki chicken sandwich recipe makes a great lunch or dinner, right off the grill. Perfect for those hot summer days when it’s too hot to cook indoors.

This is the best and easiest homemade pasta sauce I’ve ever made. It’s so simple but tastes so delicious too. It only takes about 20 minutes to make too. Great for a quick and easy dinner any night of the week. If you can open a few cans and slice garlic you can make this delicious sauce in just minutes for a quick and easy dinner. Add in cooked ground beef or cooked sausage to beef it up.

I love how easy these cinnamon twist scones are to make. They are as easy to mix up as biscuits, but turn out looking so fancy. Great for breakfast or brunch when company is coming over. They are also a frugal breakfast recipe costing only $.10 each. My family gobbles these up every time I made them.

  1. We are finally supposed to have some warmer weather this week after so many cold, rainy days, so I’m doing a couple skillet meals and a big entree salad for dinner.

    Your grilled teriyaki sandwich looks so good! I think it’s something that my family would love to have sometime this summer 🙂
